Prince Soars To Number One On Billboard Just 8 Hours After News Of His Death

We're glad his music is helping people cope.

Prince's sudden passing on Thursday marked the loss of a true music legend, but even we're surprised by the latest news.

We're hearing that the 57-year-old's 2001 compilation album The Very Best of Prince is set to top the Billboard 200 for the week ending May 7 with 150,000 albums sold!

While fans purchasing albums to show support for their fallen idols isn't new — David Bowie's Blackstar topped the chart earlier this year — what's special about this album is the timing.

Billboard closes its weekly sales period every Thursday night at midnight, meaning Prince's 15-year-old set managed to outsell every other album in the country this week in just eight hours!

However, we're sure previous front-runners like The Lumineers, Rihanna, and Kanye West will gladly concede to the legend.

The official numbers won't come out until Sunday, but we're thinking keeping his songs off every streaming site except TIDAL certainly played a part in his impressive numbers!

Are U one of the thousands who purchased The Very Best of Prince yesterday??

Adele & Rihanna’s Singles Both Broke Records This Week! You Better Work, Hello!

Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteAdeleBusiness Blitz

Can these two ever be stopped?!

Adele and Rihanna have guaranteed their spots in history as pop culture icons, but just in case you worried about their future careers, we're pretty sure they're going to be fine.

That's because Billboard just released the latest numbers for the week ending April 23 and both ladies just broke even more world records with their hit singles!

For starters, Hello just tied Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway and Celine Dion's A New Day Has Come as the longest reigning female singles atop the Adult Contemporary chart all with 21 weeks.

Work, on the other hand, made an even bigger impact as its eighth week leading the Billboard Hot 100 just tied her with The Beatles for the 2nd most weeks atop the chart — although, both acts are still trailing Mariah Carey's staggering 79 weeks!

Combine that with the news that 25 was the highest-selling album in 2015 with 17.4 million copies, and we'd say Rihanna and Adele have a lot to celebrate.

But the real question is… are U a bigger fan of Work or Hello??

Ciara Refused To Say Future's Name While Announcing The Billboard Music Awards Nominees On Live TV! This Shade Is Gold!

no title

Now this is how you throw shade.

Ciara and Future have made it very clear that their relationship is beyond irreparable, but the latest update in the coparents' drama is straight up HIGHlarious!

Early Monday morning the 1, 2 Step singer and Ludacris were live on Good Morning America to announce the nominees for the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.

Everything was going smoothly… until CiCi got to Best Rap Artist and downright REFUSED to say her ex's name on LIVE TV! HA!

Luda eventually jumped in to give Future his acknowledgement, but we think it's clear Ciara is rooting for either Drake, Fetty Wap, Wiz Khalifa, or Silento in the category. LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out Ciara's ultimate shade against Future (below)!!!
