Bon Jovi earned their sixth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 charts with This House Is Not for Sale

From its debut on Nov. 4 to Nov. 10, the release sold 129,000 units, 128,000 of which were traditional album sales. This is after early predictions estimated between 110,00 and 120,000 sales. 

Bon Jovi’s other chart-topping albums include What About Now (2013), The Circle (2009), Lost Highway (2007), New Jersey (1988), and Slippery When Wet (1986). This House Is Not for Sale gives the group their 13th album to land within the top 10. 

“This record is about our integrity. Integrity matters and we’re at a stage of our career where we don’t have anything left to prove. Some songs have a little more of the ‘chip on my shoulder’ sound which is OK for us to have right now,” Bon Jovi said at a press conference in September 2015. 

Alicia Keys’ Here followed in No. 2 with 50,000 units, with the official motion picture soundtrack to Trolls at No. 3 (47,000 units), Pentatonix’s A Pentatonix Christmas at No. 4 (46,000 units), and Rae Sremmurd’s Sremmlife 2 at No. 5 (39,000 units).
