Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Adele & Justin Bieber Continue Chart Domination

As reported here, ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ beau Kendrick Lamar soared to the top of charts with his unexpected release ‘untitled unmastered’ this week, dethroning last week’s spot-holder’s 1975s.

The Brit band, who dropped completely out of the top 25 this week, may have bested the likes of Adele, Rihanna, and Justin Bieber last week, but they have nothing on the trio’s staying power.  In fact, Addy and Biebs have not once left the Billboard 200’s top 5 since their albums, ’25’ and ‘Purpose,’ were respectively released in November 2015.Barring the #27 debut of her 8th outing ‘Anti,’ Grammy winning singer Rihanna can boast the same.

Yet, while we’ve already reported next week’s refreshed chart will see yet another champion (Gwen Stefani), we can say with fair certainty that Rih, Biebs, and Addy will be adding yet another top 5 run to their already impressive tallies.

Until then, get into this week’s album chart check blow:

      Those aren’t official,just predictions of what they think will happen. They are rumouring her being above Adele by 900 points (TEA+SEA) but it’s not known for sure

    • King z March 19, 2016

      Two things: see the time stamp of that HDD article.

      Next, read this post and you will see Gwen is #1 next week

      • LB March 19, 2016

        So why haven’t they reported who has sold what (they usually do) and why is Kendrick still #1 when HDD has him at #6?

    • Cinnamon Girl March 20, 2016

      I told you fools Rihanna is not going to be #1. Stop being so delusional. You’re beginning to frighten me

  1. Gerett March 19, 2016

    The only one impressing me here is Adele,Rihanna is selling as low as 16k,only thing keeping Anti afloat at this point is streaming and TEA. I don’t even think it’s hit 350k sales in the US yet.

    • OMG Logic!!! March 20, 2016

      Well obviously. No sane mind is going to spend $14 on that whack ass album.

  2. smh March 19, 2016

    For Rihanna to have the number one single in the country for the past,what 4 weeks now? Her album sales don’t show that at all. She’s selling less than 18,000. ? Has Anti even gone gold yet?

    • Tyler Makiavelli March 20, 2016

      No Anti hasn’t gone gold. It has not sold 300,000 in the U.S.
      Justin Beiber released Purpose back in November and it’s pushing 10,900. Anti is barely pushing 9,000 after TWO MONTHS.

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 20, 2016

        BTW! It hasn’t been a full 2 months. Only 6 weeks ?

  3. VFT6 March 19, 2016

    Is Justin missing a tooth?

    • credits March 19, 2016

      I was gonna ask the same thing…

  4. Weezy Tha Goat March 19, 2016

    Justin is Queen. And thank god for streams or else Rihanna would be in big trouble.

  5. betes March 19, 2016

    Rihsceduled is SO LUCKY bb changed their rules. Otherwise it wuld be out the top 10 by now. Talk around town says frih is down to 9k/W. Lmao & When will Frih get a DIAMOND album? IAMSF went 2Xs DIAMOND in BRAZIL (500k sold).

  6. M El March 19, 2016

    • Tran anti no honey love time but it okay girl March 20, 2016

  7. King B March 19, 2016

    Australian Album Chart #43
    France Album Chart #34
    UK Album Chart #15
    It’s not top 10 in Japan and Germany either.

  8. Navy Captain March 19, 2016

    It’s funny how pressed the hive gets. It makes me laugh. No matter how many times you say anti is not platinum, it will still ALWAYS be a platinum RIAA certified album.

  9. betes March 19, 2016

    Its platinum no ones debating that but it SOLD how much? Certainly not FREE. If it were that easy every album would be free. Have standards. Is it even ok for frih to CHEAT? The album still a MASSIVE FLOP. ONLY major artist she culd beat was CHRIS BROWN & washed up has beens like Janet & mariah sales. She will never touch that 618k

    • whyGurlWepa1989 March 20, 2016

      Why is it cheating when Samsung purchased it as a business transaction? 25mil, who does that? Most artists with #1 single or album don’t can’t even generate that income from going just”platinum” these days. Who else’s will give there album out over million plus for free and still making bank? Be mad all u want but ‘its certified and Rih is clocking them checks.

  10. HailBeysus March 20, 2016

    DEATH SO THE GAVVY WERE LYING AGAIN!?!?!? I THOUGHT ANTISUCCESS WAS GOING TO BE #1 THIS WEEK???

    • King Mark111 /.\ March 20, 2016

      Next week’s. MAYBE, this is last weeks sales. Hint NEW next to the #1 album that been out for two weeks now.

      • HailBeysus March 20, 2016

        Lmfao!!! these excuses Remember when wreckedbutthole specifically said HDD had anti to top the bb200 this week and you left a comment saying more egg on the pest face. ????????????

        Im also confused tho. Kendricks album was released March 4 so why now is it topping the charts? Last week was 1975. I mean they udated the Hot100. Rihanna is #1 for a 4th week and Lukas Graham has climbed up to #5. So this chart must be this week’s if the Hot100 is updated.

  11. Tran anti no honey love time but it okay girl March 20, 2016

    Congratulations to Kendrick Lamar being the number one

  12. King Mark111 /.\ March 20, 2016

    You know you’re a bad @ss when you steam more than others sales. It’s 1500 streams = 1 unit. So Rihanna been selling what? About 40k a week? Let’s say 20k to be safe, times that by 1500 = 30 million streams a week. Hottest album out!

    • HailBeysus March 20, 2016

      Kiii chile! You seem to forget that 10 purchased songs from an album can also equate to 1 unit sold. You also seem to forget Adele’s Album is not available for streaming. The fact Adele only leaves an 800 unit gap between her and Rihanna is way more impressive lol! Also the fact someone like bieber being in the top 5 since Nov 2015 is impressive. Rihanna is falling off fast. 9k sold this week while justin sold 11k. But most of all IM SCREAMING at fRih having no competition on the charts. Clearly bieber and Adele’s fire has sizzled way down. Wonder what this would look like if Prism, Artpop and Self Titled all released around the same time. Now that streaming is a factor since nov of 2014. I can’t wait for B6!!!

  13. betes March 20, 2016

    When Bey was 28 she was going DIAMOND in BRAZIL (500k) Twice while FRIAHANNA struggles to go GOLD in the US. Is it even GOLD IN THE UK?? It has been 2 months. :/ IASF was platinum in UK & US in under 1 month. :'( if R9 flops this hard Rih will be judging on THE VOICE full time.

    • GurlWepa1989 March 20, 2016

      Adele’s current and last album, shits on Bey’s entire album catalogue ?. Diamond in Brazil, try to achieve one in the US, she will never.

      • HailBeysus March 20, 2016

        Lmao oop giving me Navy tease with using others receipts. Adele shíts on Taylors album too kii! Not only does Adele shít on Basic Swifts album sales she shíts on her vocals as well bawahahaha we see why you mad!

  14. betes March 20, 2016

    Lol at the idiots upset and bothered over the video i posted. Just like a naked baby or naked peter from family guy Woman are S.E.XLESS. My video was 100% appropriate, sam will not take it down. Its rated pg in the minds of educated ppl. I posted NOTHING just like Antis sales Kiii

  15. M El March 20, 2016

    Congratulations Rihanna.God keeps blessing you,proud of you Queen ?????????

  17. betes March 20, 2016

    In the navys mind samsung paid rih 25 million so that they can pay another 25 million to buy the album in normal civilized mind samsung helped rih go plat since she couldnt do it own her own by buying her plaque for 25 million. Thats what rih received a plaque not 25 million. The carters got PAID that ammout for the on the run tour regardless of whether they sold out shows they got paid upfront in cash by dem white folks paper. Thats REAL BUSINESS. Not to mention .the 50 million pepsi deal.

  18. Cinnamon Girl March 20, 2016

    Billboard is reporting that Anti will be #1again but she only sold 17, 000 in pure sales. Lol

  19. LB March 20, 2016

    Anti is #1 according to Billboard
