Good ‘Reputation’: Taylor Swift Rocks Billboard 200 For Another Week

Published: Thursday 14th Dec 2017 by David

Guess who’s rocking the Billboard 200 with pure sales for yet another week!

Taylor Swift of course.

Sweet news for the Pop siren after the bounce…

The star’s so-so received ‘Reputation’ hasn’t received the critical acclaim her fans had hoped it would but is faring very well commercially.

This week, the set sold north of 62,000 units in pure sales and around 100,000 units with streams placing it #2.

This week’s number #1? Luke Bryan‘s ‘What Makes You Country’ which is to sail into the top spot with around 97,000 units moved traditionally and 105,000 copies once streams are factored in.

  1. *Luke Bryan (Capitol Nashville) 100-105k SPS, 92-97k Sales
  2. Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 95-100k, 62-67k

  17. Chris Brown (RCA) 26-29k, 2-3k
  18. Imagine Dragons (Kidinakorner/Interscope) 26-29k, 11-13k
  19. Gwen Stefani (Interscope) 23-26k, 17-19k
  20. P!nk (RCA) 22-25k, 17-19k

Surprisingly, Chris Brown‘s fun-filled ‘Heartbreak on a Full Moon’ is only expected to sell around 3,000 copies this week and is carried into the Top 20 on the wings of streams garnered by its club-ready cuts.

Good news for him…bad news for Pink. For, despite seeing her new album move more units than Brown’s, she is to chart three spots lower than him because her set didn’t receive as much love on the likes of Spotify.

  • Chris Brown (RCA) 26-29k, 2-3k

  • Imagine Dragons (Kidinakorner/Interscope) 26-29k, 11-13k

  • Gwen Stefani (Interscope) 23-26k, 17-19k

  • P!nk (RCA) 22-25k, 17-19k

    The Queen of the music industry, Taylor Swift.

    • Meme December 14, 2017

      The queen of basic pop tart bops.

  5. Lol December 14, 2017

    That remark about the reviews for reputation is actually a lie. It’s her highest rated album of her career. Check metacritic. Y’all ate so basic and remedial with your reporting it’s kinda sad.

  6. Theman December 14, 2017

    Pure Sales should outweigh streams. Period. Chris should be selling far more than that.

  7. JOHNVIDAL December 14, 2017

    Mariah being there is absolutely unbelievable. Eternal. The song is not even kind of semi recent anymore. Most classics (yes even the classics) end slowly losing some commercial steam and cultural impact after 20 or 30 years. The success of this song of HERS is epic.

  8. Caleb December 15, 2017

    It’s only because Chris Brown has 5x the amount of songs, so naturally he will chart higher when streams are factored in regardless if he only sells 3 copies.

  9. DanYiel Iman December 15, 2017

    I can’t brl folks like her pop tart songs!!
