    Charts Don't Lie: June 13

    This week saw a range of debuts from a range of artists. The top entry within rap and R&B went to Jason Derulo who slid in at number four, just under Rocky who managed to have another strong week. A little farther down Chicago drill hero Lil Durk put his debut album in at number 14, and Dom Kennedy quietly slipped in at 23. While me may see the latter two LPs fall in the coming weeks, Derulo has been known to stick around, especially considering he's got a few potential hits lined up.

    We're seeing a few new rap entries grace the Billboard 200 this week, with new albums out from Lil Durk and Dom Kennedy. Durk's debut, Remember My Name, has been a long time coming, so long in fact, that it appears fans may have lost hope. Even with its release, it's received sub-par reviews. It may not have been a complete flop, but it didn't crack the top 10 for its debut.

    To say that the dawn of drill feels like yesterday would be generous at best. It's been roughly three years since Chicago's rap explosion took the world by storm, and now it feels like you're sifting through the rubble. So many promising talents have struggled to live up to the hype, gotten lost in the blogosphere, or become unrecognizable. And that's if you're lucky enough not to die or go to jail.
