Billboard Breakdown: A Boogie Debuts In The Top 5 + Predictions For Lil Pump

billboard

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie scored big with his debut album, The Bigger Artist. The project debuted at number 4 on the Billboard 200, selling a solid 67k units in its first week! The reviews have been really good for the album too, so I have a feeling this will stay in the top 10 for a while!

Elsewhere on the chart, Tank, Rittz, PARTYNEXTDOOR and Smokepurpp all made their debuts as well, but none came even close to A Boogie‘s success. Tank‘s new album Savage debuted at number 39 with 13k, Smokepupp‘s Deadstar came in at number 42 with nearly 13k, Rittz‘s Last Call came in at number 43 with 12k and worst of all – PND‘s Seven Days EP came in at number 82 with just 8k units. Not sure what that’s about!

Looking ahead to next week, Lil Pump is set to make his chart debut with his self-titled debut album. Currently, the project is predicted to sell around 35-40k, which will likely land him in the top 10. In the meantime, check out this week’s top 10 below!

PartyNextDoor Is Back After Deleting His Twitter With A Cryptic Tweet

Partynextdoor PND COLOURS _LifeIsTremendez

PartyNextDoor put out his long awaited P3 project this summer, but it got a lukewarm reception at best. In an interview with Rolling Stone last month, the OVO singer revealed that he wasn’t happy at all, particularly after giving Drake and Rihanna such a “moment” with the song “Work,” and not having one for himself.

Many have speculated that Party writes a lot of Drake‘s songs, something Joe Budden made note of on one of his diss tracks to Drake earlier this summer. And seemingly, Party himself confirmed it with this tweet over the weekend, before deleting his entire account:

Billboard Breakdown: PND & Rae Sremmurd’s Debuts + Projections For Tory Lanez & Frank Ocean

For the second week in a row, the Suicide Squad soundtrack has kept Drake from the number one spot. This week, the album – which features songs from Lil Wayne, Kehlani, Ty Dolla $ign, Wiz Khalifa and more – moved an additional 93k units, while Views came in behind it at 71k.

Both albums will have a run for their money next week, however, as Frank Ocean is expected to debut at number one with Blond. The project is currently on pace to sell between 225k-250k units. In comparison, his debut album, 2012’s Channel Orange, sold 131k its first week. Tory Lanez will also debut next week, though I Told You is only set to move between 35k–40k. Hopefully this still gives him a top 10.

Back on this week’s chart, PartyNextDoor nabs his first top 10 album, debuting at number 3 with P3 at 50k units. Meanwhile, Rae Sremmurd‘s SremmLife 2 comes in at number 7 with 27k. Their previous album, 2015’s Sremmlife, debuted and peaked at number 5 with 49k.

Billboard Breakdown: Suicide Squad Soundtrack Tops Charts, Frank Ocean & Eminem Creep Back Up + Rae Sremmurd & PartyNextDoor’s Sales Predictions

billboard

Drake remains out of the number one spot this week once again, being stuck at 2 while the Suicide Squad soundtrack debuts at the top with a solid 182k units sold. Last week’s number one, DJ Khaled, has since dropped down to number 7.

Meanwhile, all that Eminem vs. Drake convo last week did some good – as it made Em‘s 2002 album The Eminem Show jump all the way from 97 up to 47 on the chart this week! Crazy! Frank Ocean‘s false alarm had the same effect, as 2012’s Channel Orange had a 47% jump from last week, moving up from 146 to number 89!

Looking ahead to next week, the projections are in for PartyNextDoor‘s P3, as well as Rae Sremmurd‘s SremmLife 2. Neither will get the top spot, though they should land top 10. P3 is on course for 40-44k units, while SL2 is looking at 25-28k.

PartyNextDoor on Kehlani Incident: “I regret how it went down.”

Kehlani-PARTYNEXTDOOR

Earlier this year, exes PartyNextDoor and Kehlani reunited after her breakup with basketball star, Kyrie Irving. It would have been an innocent situation – as many exes end up back in each other’s arms, particularly when it doesn’t work out with the rebound – but PND making it public info with a seemingly sneaky pic made for an explosive moment online. It didn’t help that there had been no prior announcement of her breakup with Kyrie.

Kehlani ended up catching tons of flack from fans who assumed she was cheating on Kyrie, and it caused her so much distress, she ended up in the hospital after a suicide attempt. She later snapped a pic showing PND at her side and thanking him for saving her, but the pair have not been spotted together since. She has since been spotted with Kyrie, however.

Without knowing the specifics of the situation, many blame PND for the whole mess, and in a very rare interview with Rolling Stone, he finally addresses it for the first time:

(Photos) 50 Cent & Cam’Ron Finally Link Up…And Hint At ‘Power’ Cameo?

camron x 50 cent

50 Cent was a pretty busy guy yesterday. On top of linking up with PartyNextDoor and promising that new music is on the way (that should be good,) he also squashed his decade-long beef with Cam’Ron.

“Money ‘Power‘ Respect,” Cam captioned the photo with Fif, as they both laughed it up. “#TheyreAllGonnaLaughAtU [tongue out emoji]” Could this mean that Killa will be appearing on the popular show?

The pair had an infamous feud in the mid 00’s, fueled by segments on the street DVDs of the time and spawning phrases like “Cuuuurtis” and, “Get my pool in the back!”

Would you like to see Cam on Power? I’d be SO here for it!
