‘Cranes in the Sky’ Singer Soars To Top Spot With Highest 1st Week Sales of Her Career


They always said ‘third time’s the charm’ and, let Solange tell it, ‘they’ would be right again.

For, nearly 14 years after her debut LP, ‘Solo Star,’ the youngest of the Knowles clan can finally boast claim to a #1 album on the Billboard 200.  That’s right, the singer – whose critically acclaimed third album, ‘Seat at the Table,’ will unseat Shawn Mendes on this week’s refreshed charts.

Getting by with a little help from Lil Wayne, Tweet, The Dream, Kelly Rowland, and so many more, ‘Table’ was unexpectedly announced just days before its release.  A noteworthy streaming force upon its debut, the project defied odds when it surged in the middle of the tracking week (an uncommon feat).  First reported to move somewhere between 42-48k SPS, the final and official figures await you below:

Whose New Release Packed the Most Potent Punch?


Let us tell it, the last three days alone have seen Fall 2016 prove itself infinitely hotter than the summer was.  With drops from Jojo, Lady Gaga, John Legend, Mary J. Blige, and Bruno Mars, 3rd quarter is on its way to giving music fans more than they can handle.

Singer Set For Highest First Week Charting Of Her Career


As of time this story is being reported Solange‘s new album, ‘A Seat at the Table,’ is taking a seat at the #1 spot on iTunes.
