FREE STREAM: #DUMMYBOY
This weekend, Billboard reveals their latest numbers for their top albums over the last seven days. Surprisingly, Travis Scott’s Astroworld claimed the no. 1 spot on the Billboard 200, generating 71,000 equivalent album units – up 60 percent. The August-released project, was certified Platinum in late September, as La’Flame earned the top slot for a third nonconsecutive week in charge.
Then, 6ix9ine’s long-awaited and controversial release of his DUMMY BOY album, came in at no. 2 on Billboard, moving 66,000 equivalent album units in week one. Of that sum, 10,000 were pure album sales, with the rest in streaming activity. Following a delay from his major label, the company was hit with a viral leak of the project, which lasted on a four-day weekend on Thanksgiving.
The 13-track effort was released on November 27th, losing out on three pivotal days of activity – following his federal arrest. Considering CHAMPIONSHIPS season for Meek Mill is just getting started, it’s unlikely that the incarcerated rapper will have his debut at no. 1 on the charts.
