'Yes!' overtakes Ed Sheeran's 'X', which was no.1 the last two weeks and follows now close behind at no.2 with 116.000 sales. 'Mandatory Fun', the new no.1 of the Billboard Album Chart opens at no.3 globally with 110.000 sales. It's the 14th album release by Comedian singer Weird Al Yankovic and the first comedy album at no.1 in the USA since 1963. The unstoppable soundtrack to Disney's blockbuster 'Frozen' ranks at no.4 this week with another 102.000 sales, a total of 5,54 million so far. Rounds out the top five is the third highest debut on the current tally: 'The Black Market' by the Chicago based punk-rock band Rise Against. It arrives with 99.000 global sales.
