Michael Buble‘s ‘Christmas’ album is lighting up the Billboard 200 chart, sitting pretty at No. 1 for a third consecutive week.

According to Nielsen SoundScan, the holiday LP sold 479,000 copies, a 64 percent increase since last week. The sales numbers are the largest for a non-debuting album since Susan Boyle‘s ‘I Dreamed a Dream,’ which sold 510,000 in its fifth week in 2009.

‘Christmas’ has become the crooner’s biggest chart-topper to date, surpassing his 2009 album, ‘Crazy Love,’ which had a two-week stint at No. 1.

Buble’s holiday ditties beat out labelmates the Black Keys, who debuted at No. 2 with their latest effort, ‘El Camino.’ Although they came in shy of the No. 1 spot, with 206,000 sold, the duo is still celebrating. The debut numbers of ‘El Camino’ mark the band’s best sales week and highest charting album ever.

Adele came in at No. 3 with her unstoppable album, ’21,’ and Justin Bieber continued to add more holiday cheer to the chart, coming in at No. 4 with ‘Under the Mistletoe.’

Buble released a music video for his rendition of the classic tune ‘Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,’ and kicked off the holiday season with a TV Christmas special on Dec. 6. It looks like the singer is getting everything he wants for the holidays this year.
