Billboard Update

Once again the Billboard charts were refreshed this morning, and here is a quick list of all the significant moves that have happened.

Sidenote: I feel like a different record is being broken every week this year. With each broken record comes the realization that we are in a changing industry. But what’s more admirable that the broken record is the person who originally set it. You need to consider that fact that most of these records were set in a time with no digital records, and that makes a huge difference.

With that being said heres the list: Continue reading

J.Cole Wins

Early reports from Billboard suggest that the LP could push 240,000 to 250,000 copies this first week. Not only does this come as a blow to all of Cole’s naysayers, but also to Blink 182, who will have to settle for the runner-up spot with a predicted 140,000 for their “comeback” album.

I have to say that Continue reading
