Sales of Michael Buble’s “Christmas” kept a-jinglin’ last week, maintaining the vocalist’s position at No. 1 on the U.S. album chart.

Buble’s Warner Bros. holiday set gained a robust 64% and sits tight at No. 1 with a 479,000-unit week, according to Nielsen SoundScan data for the week ended Dec. 11. Holiday collection holds the apex for a third week.

Four debuting titles breathed some much-needed new life into the chart. Post-Thanksgiving sales remain somewhat humdrum, however, with just five titles selling more than 100,000 copies; release schedule for the remainder of December is thin.

Akron twosome the Black Keys burst in at No. 2 with “El Camino” (Nonesuch). Duo’s 206,000-unit bow is their best ever; last year’s breakthrough “Brothers” peaked at No. 3.

Amy Winehouse’s posthumous “Lioness: Hidden Treasures” (Universal Republic), a collection of previously unreleased tracks, arrived at No. 5, moving 114,000. British soul-pop vocalist, who died suddenly in July, saw her chart peak with her sophomore album “Back to Black,” which climbed to No. 2 at the height of her popularity in 2008.

The week’s other, comparatively mild debuts were “Glee: the Music, Season 3: Volume 7” (Columbia), which entered at No. 9 with 58,000, and hard rock unit Korn’s “The Path of Totality” (Roadrunner), which moved in at No. 10 with 55,000 shifted.

Stanza’s biggest holdovers are Adele’s still formidable “21” (Columbia), which dipped one position to No. 3 with a 187,000-unit frame (up 30%), and Justin Bieber’s “Under the Mistletoe” (Island), which fell one notch to No. 4 with 158,000 (up 19%).

Top 10 is rounded out by Andrea Bocelli’s “Concerto: One Night in Central Park” (No. 6, 79,000 sold, up 28%), Drake’s “Take Care” (No. 7, 73,000, off 19%) and Nickelback’s “Here and Now” (No. 8, 66,000, down 16%).
