Billboard’s Top 10 Album Sales, Week Ending 2/15/15 … Congrats To Drake On A #1 Album!

In just 3 days (as Billboard closes out its tally each week on Sunday nights and Drake dropped late Thursday night,) Drake managed to move 495k hard copies of his “mixtape,” If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late, as well as break a Spotify record with more than 17.3 million first-week streams. The project will undoubtedly go gold by next week’s charts (if not already,) and with Billboard’s new SPS (sales plus streaming) methodology, it’s actually already at 535k. No word whether this will ever be available other than digitally, but Drizzy’s official studio album, Views From the 6, is due out later this year. Get the full top 10 of this week’s Billboard 200 below!


Billboard’s Top 10 Album Sales, Week Ending 12/7/14 … Congrats To Mary J. Blige On A Top 10 Debut!

We are in the second week of Billboard’s revamped metric system for the top albums in the country, and Taylor Swift is still sitting pretty at the top. 1989 moved 274,000 units in the week ending December 7, with 44k of that number due to the new calculations. As previously reported, Billboard will now factor album streaming and single sales into the overall tally, with 1,500 streams (on providers like Spotify, Pandora, etc.) counting toward 1 full sale, and 10 single purchases as 1 sale as well. However, the Billboard 200 chart (which is all genres in one) is the only chart to use this system, as the specific genre charts will remain with the original formula for now. As I noted last week, hip-hop doesn’t seem to be benefitting all that much from the change. It’s quite noticeable this week as Rick Ross, Eminem and Beyoncé were all knocked out of the top 10 after just one week there. Mary J. Blige debuts this week with The London Sessions, however, moving 57,000 units since its release last week. Only 2,000 come from streaming and/or single sales, though. Check out the full top 10 below!


Eminem, Rick Ross & Beyoncé Debut In The Top 10 On The REVAMPED Billboard 200

A few weeks back, the Billboard 200 announced that they would be making the biggest change in their 23-year history. Instead of calculating album sales solely by physical and digital albums purchased, they revealed that they’d now be incorporating streaming and single downloads into the calculations as well. For every 1500 streams (on providers like Spotify, Beats Music, Google Play and more,) the artist will be credited as getting one full album sale, as well as for every 10 singles purchased. They will not change the current charts for specific genres just yet, however, and will also keep a separate chart called Top Album Sales, where they will continue to calculate sales in the traditional manor.
