Beyonce Squeaks to the Top of the Charts
Beyonce takes the top spot on the Billboard Charts with surprisingly low numbers...
Lemonade debuts at no.1 on the Billboard 200 with 653,000 equivalent album sales, including streams, with 485,000 in pure album sales after one week.
Certainly commendable considering Lemonade was a TIDAL exclusive for the first 24 hours, but frightening if Drake's first day sales for Views was actually 630k like he claimed after releasing his new album exclusively on Apple Music [click here if you missed that].
On the bright side Beyonce is now the only artist to debut at No. 1 with their first six albums in a row.
