Chart Check: Katy Perry, 6ix9ine Slip Out of Billboard 200 in Less Than 5 Weeks

Published: Thursday 8th Oct 2020 by Rashad


Smile is probably the last thing dedicated fans of Katy Perry, affectionately known as #Katycats, will do once they cop a gander of the latest Billboard 200.

The diva’s latest LP, ‘Smile,’ is noticeably absent from the hitlist despite assistance from an aggressive promotional campaign that saw her not only launch multiple buzz and official singles in its support but also perform at or be featured in a host of top-named television programs, Web or print outlets, and more.

Unlisted on the album chart’s newest edition printed this week, the departure from the tally (in what would’ve been its fifth week) comes as the shortest stay any of her major label studio projects have experienced to date.

Among the last month’s high profile releases, her brief tenancy was bested only by serial hitmaker 6ix9ine.

More inside:

Listed at #167 on last week’s Billboard 200, this week saw 6ix9ine’s ill-fated sophomore album – ‘Tattletales’ – exit the tally in what would’ve been its fourth week.

Unlike Perry, the rapper’s project boasted two Hot 100 top 5 hits – ‘TROLLZ’ (#1 peak) and ‘GOOBA’ (#3 peak).  Even with the aforementioned considered, 6ix9ine’s effort premiered in the album chart’s top 5 but rendered considerably less numbers than originally predicted- just like Perry.

Also like Katy, the abbreviated run of ‘Tattletales’ on the hitlist comes as the shortest among his studio albums to date.

Look below to see who made the cut on this week’s TGJ Chart Check: Billboard 200.

    Not all #1 Billboard Hot 100 charting songs (I didn’t use the word “hit” purposefully) are created the same or even equal.

    Most people with ears have NEVER heard Trollz and never will, meanwhile there are plenty of top 5 songs that didn’t reach #1 that are classics, as in, played at weddings, graduations, anniversaries, etc.

    That’s why I’m not hung up on what hits #1.

    Lol, not at machine gun kelly tapping out of hip-hop…something Post Malone wishes he could do 😂 chile this is why I don’t trust whites in hip-hop. Katy perry had a good run she will be alright.
