So Nielsen Music was tripping this week because according to Billboard after they recalculated the numbers of sales “Dummy Boy” actually surpassed Travis Scott’s AstroWorld. Travis Scott’s “Astroworld” was previously named the number 1 album on Billboard, but the “Dummy Boys” over in records and keeping were sadly mistaken.
“Our team has done a deep dive and found the cause of the initial discrepancy,” Nielsen’s Drew Bennett said. “We’ve since then reprocessed the jobs necessary and re-finalized the charts. As a result, 6ix9ine’s Dummy Boy will be moving to #1… Our team is working quickly to identify the root cause of this discrepancy to ensure that we get it right the first time.”
As previously reported, Astroworld sold 71,048 60 total album equivalent units, 31,455 pure album sales and pulled in a streaming count of 51,953,691 this week, a 60 percent jump from his No. 7 position last week.
Is you stoooppidddd? Dummy Boy sold65,598 total album equivalent units, 10,137 pure album sales and a streaming count of 73,231,512, they THOUGHT!
Tre Way aka 6ix9ine is currently sitting behind bars for multiple felonious charges, including racketeering. The judge set his first court date for Sept.4, 2019. Well damn. #RAPPEDOUT
