IFWT_Being_Mary_Jane_Cutty

This season in television is one that is on fire. For me, I can’t seem to draw the line between keeping my eyes on work or the boob tube. Late night, the latter usually wins, especially on Tuesday nights; Being Mary Jane, starring Gabrielle Union, comes on. As if the universal topics aren’t good enough to pull you in, as a woman, it gets deeper when MJ drags another bulky man into her life. Her latest, Brandon “Cutty Buddy” Gibson, real name, Thomas Q. Jones.

As MJ’s transition from a bruised-emotionally and physically-up hospital patient moves on to the news anchor lady that we all know and love, she still needs to be touched every now-and-again; enter Mr. Cutty Buddy.

While most of us would love for Mr. Cutty Buddy to be so much more, he’s thinking that it’s a bad idea.

Drake x Future & Mac Miller’s First Week Sales + Fetty Wap’s Sales Projections

Billboard

Unsurprisingly, Drake and Future have arrived at the top of the charts with the release of their surprise mixtape, What A Time To Be Alive. The project moved a whopping 375k units since its release last Sunday, making the second number one album for both guys this year. Congrats!

Elsewhere on the charts, Mac Miller also had a strong debut in the top 5. The Pittsburgh rapper came in at number 4 with 87k units of GO:OD AM. Solid!

Looking forward to next week, our guy Fetty Wap’s sales projections are in, and he’s on pace to move between 110k and 115k units of his debut, self-titled album! However, these numbers came in before he made national headlines because of his bike accident, so there is a large possibility that may have positively impacted sales and these numbers could inflate. We’ll know in a week!

In the meantime, check out this week’s full top 10 below.
