According to Alex, only sales made in the United States and Puerto Rico are considered when measuring the performance of albums for the World Albums category.
“World Albums chart is based on Digital & Physical Sales of the full album in the US & Puerto Rico ONLY as tracked by Nielsen Music,” Alex said.
Statistics available online through Google Trends shows that people in the United States Shatta Wale recorded a good number of sales in the United States than those he competed in the iTunes charts thus dropping out of the iTunes Charts; meaning that Shatta Wale had enough sales in Ghana and Africa but lower sales in the United States and Puerto Rico.
