Rod Stewart’s Merry Christmas Baby holds at #3 for the second week. It’s the best-selling Christmas album for the second week in a row. And it’s not for lack of competition: a whopping 41 Christmas albums are listed on the Billboard 200 this week. Merry Christmas Baby will probably wind up as the year’s best-selling Christmas album. If so, this will be the fourth year in a row that an artist from outside the U.S. has had the year’s top-selling Christmas album. Italy’s Andrea Bocelli was on top for 2009 with My Christmas. Scotland’s Susan Boyle was #1 for 2010 with The Gift. Canada’s Michael Buble triumphed last year with Christmas. What’s more, Stewart, 67, would be the oldest artist to have the year’s best-selling Christmas album in the Nielsen SoundScan era. That title is currently held by Bocelli, who was 51 when My Christmas scored in 2009.
