As the early projections told us last week, The Game’s highly anticipated Documentary 2 album fell just short of the #1 spot this week thanks to Selena Gomez’ Revival, but that's saying a lot.
The biggest story in this week's charts is the triumphant return of Janet Jackson, who -- as she should -- takes the top spot this week, making her one of three artists who has scored number one albums over the last four decades.
After selling 334,000 pure albums in week one, Drake and Future's WATTBA reportedly sold 65,000 albums in week 2, an 81% decline in sales. Looks like it's gonna be a while before it goes platinum...
After dominating the singles chart for the last few months, Fetty Wap is officially taking over the Billboard 200, with his self-titled debut landing at the number one spot in its first week. Fetty Wap surpassed already high expectations by moving 12
Last week belonged to Drake and Future, and while their numbers didn't live up to the inflated projections, they still managed to keep Lana Del Rey, Mac Miller, and the persistent Beauty Behind The Madness out of the top spot.
Drake has kept the hits coming over the last few years, and Billboard has been keeping track. Today, it was announced that Drizzy had landed his 100th entry on the Hot 100 chart.In fact he landed his 93rd, 94th, 95th...
The first week numbers for Jay Rock's overdue 90059 album have arrived. The album was slated to move 15k-18k opening week, which includes streams. He's landed right in the middle of that projection, after selling 16,012 copies opening week.
Jay Rock and TDE CEO Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith had unorthodox strategy for the 90059 rollout, waiting until a satisfactory number of people had pre-ordered the album before releasing it on September 11th. The first week sales projections are now in...
The big success story this week is The Weeknd. We really should have seen it coming. Abel has had four singles floating on the Hot 100 for the last little while, and going into this week he had the number one song in the country.
"Straight Outta Compton" had a historic opening weekend, kept the momentum up through week two, and now it has topped the box office for the third consecutive week, pulling in an estimated $13.2 million.
The Weeknd had an ideal ramp up in advance of Beauty Behind the Madness, putting out some monster records in "Earned It," "The Hills," & "Can't Feel My Face" (plus appearing on Ariana Grande's megahit "Love Me Harder") that elevated the publ
Even when a project is only tangentially connected to Eminem, it tends to sell. Em's executive-production of the soundtrack for Southpaw (as well as some exclusive material) has earned it an admirable debut at number four on the Billboard 200.
It was yet another unpredictable week on the charts, with Meek Mill being dethroned by none other than -- Tyrese? That's right, the veteran R&B star turnt Furious 7 actor has landed his very first number one with his sixth studio album.
