Chart Check: Meghan Trainor Hits #1 With Debut Album / Taylor Swift Certified 4x Platinum

meghan-trainor-thatgrapejuice

It seems as though what Meghan Trainor is really all about is clocking #1s.

For, after pop superstar Beyonce passed on the female empowerment song ‘All About That Bass,’ Trainor took the tune to the top of the Hot 100 for 8 consecutive weeks.  Now, fans looking for the Massachusetts-bred songbird’s album on charts shouldn’t look anywhere but up as she’s currently perched atop the Billboard 200 with her debut ‘Title.’

Besting initial reports of 220,000 first week sales by nearly 20,000, the burgeoning diva saw her first title on the tally zoom to #1 on the wings of 238,000 units sold.  This, just days before word had it country pop princess Taylor Swift saw her blockbuster ‘1989’ album edge past the 4 million mark.

If you were wondering when was the last time an album shifted 4 million copies in the U.S. you shouldn’t be surprised to know that it was when Swift did it herself a year ago with ‘Red.’

Chart Check: Taylor Swift En Route To Replace Herself Atop the Hot 100

Oops, she did it again!

America’s country pop darling Taylor Swift is swiftly moving her latest title, ‘Blank Space,’ to the top space on the Billboard Hot 100. Thanks to healthy surge of sales and streaming (even in the absence of Spotify), the track blasts into the top 10’s upper ranking and threatens to dethrone the tally’s current champion – herself.

As ‘All About that Bass’ beauty Meghan Trainor holds onto the #2 spot for dear life, is there a chance Taylor will leap frog over the newcomer to shake up next week’s Hot 100 report?

Time will tell.  Until then, recap this week’s top 10 below:

Weigh In: Taylor Swift Slams Spotify / Company’s CEO Claps Back

spotify-taylor swift-thatgrapejuice

 

Taylor Swift and Aloe Blacc are amongst artists taking a stand against streaming giants Pandora, Spotify, and more for their “unfair compensation of artists.”

Indeed, Blacc – who has wielded such recent top hits as ‘I Need A Dollar’ and ‘I’m the Man’ – made headlines this week after alleging his hits have been spun over 168 million times on the top streaming web sites.  His compensation for the spin?   A measly $4000.

He’s not the only one.

Music’s darling right now, ‘Shake It Off’ songstress Taylor Swift, has unceremoniously shaken off Spotify by yanking her music from the popular streaming site.  A bold move she accompanied with this quote:

“I’m not willing to contribute my life’s work to an experiment that I don’t feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists and creators of this music. I just don’t agree with perpetuating the perception that music has no value and should be free.”

Spotify’s CEO Daniel Elk feels Swift’s assessment is unfair.  Read his response below and tell us how you feel:

Queen of Soul…And Shade: Aretha Franklin Weighs In On Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj…& Barack Obama

aretha franklin-thatgrapejuice-cissy

As her newest album, ‘Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics,’ is currently reigning over the R&B charts, Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin is hot on the promo trail in its support.

With a campaign of guest appearances plagued with lol-worthy moments (i.e. interview glitches, Cissy Houston‘s lack of interest in memorizing words, etc.), it seems Franklin has no intentions on slowing the good times from rolling.  Case in point?  Aunt Re sat down with The Wall Street Journal recently to discuss her new project and, as always, was asked to weigh in on today’s top crop of talent.  Her answers were…umm…interesting to say the least.

Tuck in below to see how the R&B legend feels about the likes of Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift, and Nicki Minaj.  This, of course, came just days after Billboard.com interviewed her and quizzed her similarly.  Her comments on Beyonce and co. were…well…just as interesting. See what we mean below.

Bonus:  Did you miss Aretha weighing in on Cissy’s now meme-tastic performance on David Letterman?  Hear her thoughts on this as well:
