The late country icon George Jones is remembered on the Billboard charts this week, following his death on April 26th.


As Nielsen SoundScan's sales tracking week ended on April 28, Billboard's new sales charts reflect only three days since Jones' passing.


On the Billboard 200 albums chart, Jones logs his highest-charting set ever on the tally, as the 1998 release "16 Biggest Hits" debuts at No. 42 with a 441% gain.
