Billboard 200: Megan Thee Stallion Opens At #2 With Major Sales

Published: Sunday 29th Nov 2020 by Sam

Megan Thee Stallion stands tall on the latest iteration of the Billboard 200.

For, the rapper’s debut album ‘Good News’ has delivered exactly that for the Hot Girl Coach.

Full story below…

Preceded by chart-topping bop ‘Savage’ with Beyonce as well as buzz cuts such as ‘Don’t Stop’ and ‘Girls In The Hood,’ the LP received added fuel during its release week with the arrival of the ‘Body’ music video.

The set also benefitted from the chatter caused by hard-hitting cut ‘Shots Fired.’

All, it seems, created the perfect storm for the project commercially.

‘Good News’ officially debuted at #2 (behind BTS) with the following numbers:

100,500
[Sales Plus Streaming]
***
16,000
[Pure Sales]

A strong start for Meg – who amassed 115.85 million streams of the LP’s tracks.

With ‘Body’ building into a hit and the album boasting a number of other single options (ala ‘Freaky Girls’ and ‘Go Crazy’), the era is shaping up nicely for the Houston native.

    The Fake Queen of Spotify, Camicky, what’s good?

    • DC November 29, 2020

  3. DC November 29, 2020

    Meg the kind of artist need a tik tok video to sell her songs 😂😂

    • Clarks0o0ñ November 29, 2020

      And, what about it?

      U do whatever you got to do to sell ur music

      • DC November 29, 2020

        But she only had hits if it’s a tik tok trend all I’m sayin she needs all that extra stuff done artists can get a hit without all the gimmick s*** all im sayin

    • FAF November 29, 2020

      Who nowadays under 30 don’t use Tik tok to sell? That’s how most ppl get #1s

  4. Clarkson November 29, 2020

    I expected her to do 150-160K at minimum but these sales are still higher than average at the moment.

  5. Clarks0o0ñ November 29, 2020

    This is much better than the projection

    Either way it’s a win for megan cause she owns her masters.

    Congratulations

      How many usernames are you gonna comment under loser????

  6. Brent Christopher November 29, 2020

    with all due respect, this GOOD NEWS album is terrible! Meg displays no growth, no maturation, no storytelling in content or advancement in themes between her mix tapes + EP’s and this debut full fledged, studio project. Meg overused sampled beats from big urban records of the 90s. she also relies too heavily on the whole, “twerk that, werk that, bend over & show that” type lyric pattern. ITS TIRED & all around god awful. Meg does not have staying power.

    • DC November 29, 2020

      That second week drop will be crazy watch

    • XYZ November 30, 2020

      Exactly

  7. Brab November 29, 2020

    She is WACK af! Her flow is remedial and her music SUCKS! She’s only good at TikTok challenges. There’s just no real star quality there. Nicki remains queen.

    • Nickiworld November 29, 2020

      Okay Queen did 186K. Damn Meg step your p**** up h**

    • DC November 29, 2020

      Agree 100 she’s a tik tok gimmick once her trend wears off she will go away can’t get a organic hit must use tik tok

  8. #WAP November 29, 2020

    Good for Meg. I’m glad she pulled at least 100k. Doja Rat the racist cannot relate with her opening week numbers (debuting at #90 😂)

  9. Clarks0o0ñ November 29, 2020

    Normani has been in the industry way longer than megan thee stallion but compare their careers today?

    Megan
    2 number one songs
    5 Grammy nominations
    A top 2 debut album.

    Normani
    No number one song
    No Grammy nominations
    No album. She cant even release a second single.

    Talent will always win in the end.
    No amount of Twitter hype or celebrity endorsements can give u a career if u have no talent

    Megan is a very smart girl.
    Look at how quickly she moved on from that flop called diamonds.

    She understands the importance of consistency. Always putting out fire music to keep people interested in her.
    Cause the attention span of the average individual today is very short.

    People move on to the next hot thing so quickly and megan understands that, this is something normani doesnt understand.

    😌😌😌

    Once again I am right.
    I know a star when I see one

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) November 29, 2020

      Omg! U r so damn right. Aren’t u a fortune teller? 🔮 come lick my fortune cookie, boy 💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿

      You called Megan ghetto and not a star in 2019

      Another R&B /hip Hop Girl who did more SPS than Camicky The Clown with no FAKE ticket bundles and big budget

      The Fake Queen of Spotify, Camicky, what’s good?

  15. AJ November 29, 2020

    Watch it tumble in week 2

  16. Beam Me Up Scotty November 29, 2020

    “Major”?

  17. MessyBoots November 29, 2020

    I was rooting for Megan to pull at least 150k first week but it is what it is. You can have all the hype in the world but if your fans dont actually PURCHASE your content you’re forced to make up for it in streaming. This album will hopefully have some legs on the streaming front. Bottom line this is a decent start. Meg had one of the best years of any major artist.

    If she wins a Grammy on January that may also increase the album’s visibility.

    Good luck Meg! 🤞🏾👸🏽

  18. DojaCat Say So November 29, 2020

    Congrats Meg, you deserve it!

  19. Trey November 30, 2020

    Wow! She did GREAT! this great for her! Congratulations Megan!

  20. Theman November 30, 2020

    These are very good numbers for a newer hiphop female artist.

  21. iSexy November 30, 2020

    Still did less than Cardi & Nicki. Bad News currently sitting at #20 on the iTunes Charts. Flop.
