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??

So Much For Streaming — Looks Like Kanye West's The Life Of Pablo Is A Billboard #1 Album!

no title

What about all that streaming talk now?! LOLz!!

After weeks of withholding it from being able to be downloaded, Kanye West finally relented back on April 1 and allowed The Life Of Pablo to be available far wider than just via streaming on Tidal… and it looks like that decision is paying off!

The rapper's 'living album' looks as though it's going to go to #1 on the Billboard 200 album charts dated April 23, thanks to more than 90,000 equivalent album sale units reported from the week ending on Thursday, April 7!

That's an impressive feat, of course — especially so for an album that was available only via streaming for more than six weeks and was obviously illegally downloaded a LOT!

Kanye West's The Life Of Pablo Album Didn't Make The Billboard Charts AT ALL!

no title

The greatest artist of all time sure isn't doing so great…

While we assumed that Kanye West's recent The Life of Pablo was going to go down as one of 2016's most anticipated album releases, it seems as though being fickle with the title really cost him.

In addition to being $53 million in debt, Billboard reported on Tuesday that Yeezus' seventh studio album failed to make the charts entirely!

Apparently, TIDAL refused to share Kanye's sales figures with the music ranker at all! Not a good sign…

The chart's Vice President Silvio Pietroluongo issued a statement, saying:

TIDAL & Universal Are Blaming Each Other For Rihanna's ANTI Leak — And It's All Kinds Of Shady!

Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteJay ZTech TalkBusiness Blitz

no title

The bigger they are, the harder they fall…

Rihanna was set to have one of the biggest debuts of 2015, but after months of rescheduling the release of ANTI, she may have contributed to her own demise.

Even though the 27-year-old pushed over 1 million copies of her eighth studio album in just 15 hours on TIDAL, she only actually sold 1,000 copies, debuting at No. 27 on the Billboard 200!

Well, now that ANTI officially did not live up to the anticipation, it looks like the executives attached to the flop are trying to distance themselves from RiRi's latest work.

In fact, shortly after the album's initial leak, TIDAL's director of marketing Grace Kim released a statement ensuring fans everything was okay, saying:

Justin Bieber Will Most Likely Beat One Direction In Record Sales!

no title

Justin Bieber is NOT Sorry about this!

As we reported, JB and One Direction dropped their highly-anticipated albums on the same day, Friday Nov 13th.

Well it looks like Bieberoni will come out on top!

According to Billboard, the 21-year-old's CD Purpose is looking to sell over 525,000 in its first week.

On the other hand, 1D's LP Made in the A.M. is projected to sell around 475,000.

However, before the What Do You Mean? hunk begins to pop champagne, there are still FOUR days left to determine who will be numero uno on the Billboard 200.

So really, anything can happen.

In happier news, BOTH records surpassed expectations! Experts believed each album would only sell around 300,000.

All is fair in love, war, and record sales!
