Right outside the top 10 on the Billboard 200 is Fleetwood Mac’s classic 1977 album Rumours. It re-enters at No. 11 with nearly 30,000 (up 1,951%) thanks to exposure from the May 3 episode of Fox TV’s “Glee,” which dedicated its entire hour to the album. Of the nearly 30,000 copies it sold last week, 91% were downloads. The week previous, the set sold nearly 1,000 copies.
Since the Billboard 200 began allowing catalog titles to chart in December 2009, this is the highest re-entry for a non-reissued album.
