Notable re-entries on the Billboard 200 this week include Stevie Wonder's "Songs in the Key of Life" and Madonna's "The Immaculate Collection."
25-time Grammy winner Wonder joined Daft Punk for a medley of songs on the show, which included the "Songs" cut "Another Star." The album returns to the list for the first time in more than 30 years, re-entering at No. 99 with 4,000 sold (up 1,037%). It's the set's best sales week since Christmas of 1999.
As for Madonna, the diva assisted Macklemore & Ryan Lewis in their "Same Love" Grammy performance, by singing a few lines of her No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit "Open Your Heart." The song, first released in 1986 on the "True Blue" album, is also featured on Madonna's first greatest hits album, "The Immaculate Collection." The latter re-enters the Billboard 200 chart for the first time since 1993, as it returns at No. 153 with 3,000 (up 494%). It's the best sales frame for "Immaculate" since July of 2008.
Both Wonder and Madonna's albums also profit from a limited-time sale price in the Google Play store last week, where each title was briefly marked down to 99-cents for select consumers. (Billboard)
