Hip Hop Album Sales Drake’s “More Life” Goes #1

Drake’s More Life maintains its position at the top of the Billboard 200 this week. Trey Songz’ Tremaine album has a strong debut, following closely behind at #3 while Ed Sheeran’s Divide is the only separation. Rick Ross remains in the Top 10 in the second week of Rather You Than Me‘s sales.

Drake’s “More Life” Means More Time At #1

Drake’s More Life sold 225,534 units in its second week at the #1 slot on the Billboard 200 chart. The project saw a 55 percent decrease from its debut a week ago when it pushed half a million units, but it still sold 43,327 albums and was streamed 253 million times.

Trey Songz Debuts At #3 With “Tremaine”

Trey Songz may or may not have dropped Nicki Minaj’s name to promote his album, but either way, fans gobbled up 67,065 units of Tremaine, propelling the R&B star to #3 in the LP’s debut. It sold 44,961 albums and was streamed 28 million times. The Virginia star has had two #1 albums in his career, 2014’s Trigga and 2012’s Chapter V.

Rick Ross goes from #3 to #8 in his second week’s sales for Rather You Than Me. This is a 62 percent drop with 39,642 total units, 22,155 albums and 22.8 million streams. The boss still has the streets buzzing with his Birdman diss track, “Idols Become Rivals.”
