Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Prince Blocks Rihanna’s Return To #1

Late Pop Icon Blasts To #1 On Strength of One Day Sales

prince-2016

Given the send off a music royal of his stature deserves, Princewho passed away unexpectedly last week (April 21) – has jumped to the top of the Billboard album charts with his ‘greatest hits’ project.

Also occupying the #2 spot with his magnum opus ‘Purple Rain,’ Prince’s reign over the Billboard 200 is all the more impressive considering the lack of streaming availability afforded his projects.  In other words, if it was as widely available as its nearest competitors, the damage he would’ve done to charts this week would almost be unfathomable.

Alas, with a whopping 179,000 and 69,000 equivalent albums moved respectively (all on the last day of tallying last week), the sets hop over the week’s previously projected competitors for #1 & #2Rihanna‘s ‘Anti’ and Sturgill Simpson‘s ‘Sailor’s Guide To Earth’ – for the wins.
