YOUR WEEKLY MARKETSHARE RECAP: Hey kiddies, let’s have more fun with bar graphs! Compare the one immediately below, portraying the frontline standings year-to-date, with the one above, measuring the latest weekly competition. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to grasp the reasons why Disney Music Group is the week’s big winner—a chart-topping album moving 214k units, nearly four times the total of #2 YG (a member of the IDJ family)—will get it done. Columbia and CMG, who are 1-2 YTD, put more points on the board this week, while IDJ, which also has the #7 seller in Rick Ross, climbs to #5, within a split hair of the Republic powerhouse. Insert March Madness metaphor here. (3/26a)
