Billboard charts: Number-one albums of 2022
The Billboard 200 measures the most commercially successful albums every week during the tracking period from Friday through the following Thursday. But while the charts used to be determined simply by record sales, the changing technological landscape has led Billboard to update its methodology since the 21st century.

One of the biggest changes came in 2014 when Billboard transitioned from pure sales to a combination of factors that add online streams and individual track sales to traditional album sales. Every album sale counts as it always has. Meanwhile, the sale of 10 individual tracks counts as one album unit. And you need 3,750 ad-supported streams or 1,250 paid subscription streams to equal a single album unit.
