Congrats! Wiz Khalifa Lands #1 Spot On Billboard For “See You Again” Track

Wiz Khalifa

Anyone who left the movie theater after seeing Furious 7 with dry eyes is clearly heartless because watching Paul Walker on the big screen for the last time is more than heart-wrenching. To make it even more emotional, Wiz Khalifa’s sad tune “See You Again” pulled the entire movie together, making it relatable for anyone who ever lost a loved one. Aside from helping the movie gain the #1 spot in the box office, Wiz kicked Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson out of the #1 position for “Uptown Funk” on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and straight pulled the robbery. Congrats, Wiz! “See You Again” and the entire Furious 7 album can be purchased via iTunes here if you haven’t heard it yet.

Disclaimer: Make sure you have a box of tissues next to you because this song will do it to you.

Billboard

Currently on its fourth week in stores, the Furious 7 soundtrack has sped up to number one on the Billboard 200 this week, moving another 111,000 units.

Wiz also recently premiered the video, as well as performed it on NBC’s The Voice, both of which also helped immensely.

Billboard’s Top 10 Album Sales, Week Ending 3/22/15 … Congrats To Kendrick Lamar On A #1 Debut!

Billboard

There is definitely no sophomore jinx for Kendrick Lamar! The arrival of his second album To Pimp A Butterfly has him perched atop the Billboard 200 for the very first time with a whopping 363k units sold, after his first album, 2012’s good kid, m.A.A.d city, debuted and peaked at number 2, selling 241,000 copies. This number includes SPS (sales plus streaming,) but traditional sales comprise 89% of its overall unit total at 324k.

The album was only announced on March 6, then had a surprise release a week early, so once again, this new “surprise” formula proves successful!

Nikki Mudarris Being Sued For Posting Masika’s “THOT” Mugshot Billboard On The Sunset Strip

ifwt_Nikki_mudarris

And the saga continues! Nikki Mudarris and her mother Marcelle are both facing a hefty lawsuit after they have been accused of posting fellow Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood cast member Masika’s mugshot with the word “T.H.O.T.” on it on a huge billboard on the Sunset strip. The owner of the popular Ace of Diamond’s strip club in Las Vegas is suing both Nikki and Marcelle for ruining his business image by putting Masika out there and exposing her D.U.I. mugshot from ten years ago. If you watch the show, you know that the owner reached out to Masika to pose for the ad in which she got naked in a bathtub full of diamonds for the shoot. Although it is blatantly obvious that Nikki HATES Masika due to their love triangle with Mally Mall, she is swearing up and down that neither she or her mother had anything to do with the thot billboard. In fact, the Mudarris family is lawyered up because they plan to fight it out until the end to prove they had nothing to do with that particular billboard.

Hmmmmmmmm…. who are you siding with on this one? Sure is hard to believe that the Mudarris’ had nothing to do with this but eh, what do we know… (I am #TeamNikki though… ALL DAY!)
