Despite an onslaught of new releases from some of the day’s top artists, it seems the 2016 Billboard 200 chart is in highest favor of the releases of Drake, Beyonce, Adele, and, of course, Rihanna. The diva eight opus, ‘Anti,’ has proven itself a streaming force like none other as evidenced by its continued buoyancy near or in the top 10 of the tally. This week, 7 months after its release, the set has bounced back into the top 10 after a brief slip out.
Similarly, Ariana Grande‘s critically acclaimed tertiary project, ‘Dangerous Woman,’ may be her first to miss the top spot upon its debut in May, but that hasn’t stopped the project from keeping tenancy in the album chart’s top 20 thanks to some serious love for its singles ‘Into You’ and the Nicki Minaj-assisted ‘Side To Side.’
