As for the regulars, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis see their best chart peak this week since they debuted at #2, with a leap from #16 to #4. Once more, it seems like promotion is on the rapper and producer's side, as an appearance on Saturday Night Live seems to have given a boost, perhaps not only to their single "Thrift Shop," but also to their album.

However, there are some chart main-stays which we couldn't have predicted when the album initially dropped-- such as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' The Heist.
