Billboard Breakdown: Post Malone’s 2016 Album Returns To Top 10 + Jhene Predictions


Thanks to the release of his new single “Rockstar” with 21 Savage, Post Malone‘s 2016 album Stoney has popped back into the top 10 on the Billboard 200. It’s never really strayed too far, however, as last week it was nearby at number 17. The track is actually not on Stoney, however, and will likely live on a new project.

Elsewhere on the chart, the debut self-titled album from Prophets of Rage (Public Enemy’s Chuck D and DJ Lord, Cypress Hill’s B-Real and Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk) landed at number 16 on the chart, which is really solid! Kevin GatesBy Any Means 2 didn’t fare nearly as well, however.

The projected debuted at number 100 with only 7k in sales, which is a HUGE change from his number 2 debut in 2016 with Islah. However, it could be the fact that it was released a day early, which likely filtered it into the previous sales week. In other words, the 7k number may only be ONE day worth of sales, not a full week, and next week we could see the real first week sales.

Looking ahead to next week, Jhene Aiko‘s surprise album Trip is expected to sell around 28-32k units. Surprisingly low, no? We’ll see the final tally next week, but in the meantime, check out this week’s top 10 below!
