Fetty Wap, The Weeknd and Drake & Future Are STILL Killing It On Billboard


Fetty Wap, Drake/Future and The Weeknd have been hanging out comfortably in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 since their respective releases, proving they certainly can stand the test of time and hype. DJ Khaled and The Game, however? Eh, not so much. Their projects have all fallen out of the top 50 since their releases in the last few weeks, with Khaled being the most recent at just two weeks ago. After debuting at number 12 on last week’s chart, I Changed A Lot has dropped a steep 69% in sales this week. Sheesh! That’s not to say any of these projects can’t bounce back after a televised performance, continued touring and/or another hit single, though, so don’t fret!

And shout out to Bryson Tiller, who though not in the top 10, has been steadily selling at least 20k a week of T R A P S O U L since it’s release last month! This kid is definitely not going anywhere!

Check out the full top 10 below. Next week we’ll finally get back to sales forecasts, as Ty Dolla $ign, Jeezy, Justin Bieber, Alessia Cara and A Tribe Called Quest all drop this Friday!
