Rihanna Debuts At #1 On Billboard, While Kevin Gates Debuts At #2!

Rihanna tops the charts today, after her first official week in stores with ANTI. As we explained last week, her Billboard “debut” didn’t really count, as it was only after a mere couple of hours available before the new chart week started. With her full 7 days, Rih clocks in with 166k – all digital, as physical copies weren’t made available until this past weekend. Also debuting big this week is Kevin Gates, whose new album Islah comes in at number two with 112k. Am I the only one who’s really shocked by this? And congrats to my JERSEY boy Charlie Puth, also debuting high at number 6 with Nine Track Mind, moving 65k. Check out this week’s full top 10 below!


Rihanna Debuted At #27 On Billboard – But There’s More To The Story!

On the Billboard charts that were released on Sunday, Rihanna debuted at number 27 – but don’t consider this a “flop.” As previously reported, Billboard is not taking into account the one million TIDAL sales (as they were purchased by Samsung and given out to fans with a promo code.) Billboard only began tracking sales once Rih released ANTI to iTunes, which happened late on Thursday night. 12am on Friday begins a new sales week, so that means this week’s results for ANTI are only a few hours worth. Next week we will see the official numbers, which are currently predicted to be around 120-130k, solidifying the number one spot. This week, ANTI moved 16k pure iTunes sales, 460 physical sales (which only comes from stores that illegally made the album available early) and more than four million streams. We’ll keep you updated on the official numbers next week!


(Photos) TIDAL Is Saying That Rihanna’s Leaked Album Was A System Malfunction And Not A Publicity Stunt

First off congratulations to Rihanna on her new album, Anti, going platinum after just one day after it was released. Even though the album was leaked TIDAL is saying it’s because of a system malfunction. The streaming service is saying that a “system” error is the blame for Anti’s leak. Check out the rest of the story after the jump.

Both Rihanna & J. Cole Dropped Surprise Albums Last Night!

Wednesday, January 27 turned out to be one of the greatest days in hip-hop in like, a really, really long time. Not only did we get the most hilarious, meme-worthy beef between Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa, but we got new albums from both Rihanna and J. Cole! Man, if only Drake had added Views From The 6 to the mix…the lit levels would have been unprecedented! First up was Rih with ANTI, confirming Billboard’s reports that the album would drop as a surprise this week, following the release of her Drake-assisted single “Work.” This is Rih‘s first album in over three years, following 2012’s Unapologetic. The project is available via TIDAL only right now, but according to a press release, the deluxe version will drop on Friday, featuring three bonus songs. I’m not sure if this too will be TIDAL-only, or will also be on iTunes. For now, it’s free to download within the app with a Samsung code. You can stream it now here, though. Features are only Drake and SZA, but production includes the likes of DJ Mustard, Travi$ Scott and more.


(Photos) About That Time TIDAL Leaked Rihanna’s “Anti” Tracklist & More …

OOPS! On purpose, or intentionally; either way TIDAL revealed to the world the upcoming Rihanna (they probably paid Kanye West to take the attention off of the foul up, but it didn’t work) tracklist, and immediately deleted it from their website. Rumors were floating around that ANTI was to drop sometime next week, however, it may come sooner than that; or someone maybe losing their job. Hit the jump for more.
