YOUR HOLLY, JOLLY MARKETSHARE TALLY: As you might have assumed from reading the item immediately below and/or scanning the Top 25 posted on Tuesday, Columbia’s star power easily lifted the label to the top of the frontline marketshare scoreboard for the week before Christmas. What’s more, those 614k in combined album sales for Beyoncé, One Direction, Susan Boyle and Celine Dion gave Rob Stringer’s elves a similarly decisive win in the overall/TEA competition. Expect a similar outcome next week. (12/27a)
