Billboard Breakdown: French Montana Debuts At #3 + Forecasts For Meek Mill


JAY-Z is at number one on the Billboard 200 for a second week in a row, with 4:44 selling an additional 87k this week. Hov now has a cumulative total of 25 weeks at number one on the chart with 14 albums, with Eminem as the only other rap act to beat (at 31 total weeks.)

French Montana‘s long awaited sophomore effort Jungle Rules makes its debut at number 3, selling 52k units. In comparison, his previous and only other effort, 2013’s Excuse My French, debuted at number 4 with 56k.

Looking ahead to next week, Lana Del Rey and Meek Mill will both be making their debuts. The exact numbers aren’t in just yet, but they’re both estimated to be in the six figure range! Looks like that Drizzy beef didn’t hurt Meek as much as people thought!
