Aaliyah’s ‘One In a Million’ To Crack Billboard Top 10 For First Time Ever Thanks to Streaming Boost

Published: Tuesday 24th Aug 2021 by Rashad

Nearly 25 years after peaking at #18 on the Billboard 200, Aaliyah‘s signature album – 1996’s ‘One In a Million’ – is not only set to re-enter the album chart but also beat its personal record.

Details inside:

Aaliyah’s ‘One In a Million’ 

Predicted First Week Sales (SPS):  25,000 units

Predicted First Week Sales (Pure): 11,000 units

Predicted Billboard 200 Debut:  #10

Thanks to a highly touted, long-awaited release to digital outlets (namely streaming platforms), the Timbaland and Missy Elliott-produced opus was so warmly received it topped the real-time performance tallies of iTunes, Amazon, and other digital music services.

According to industry analysts, the reignited interest in ‘One In a Million’ will see it land at #1 on the R&B Albums chart and #10 on the refreshed Billboard 200 (which will be unveiled Sunday, August 29).  If the prediction rings true, it will make the album her third top 10 hit on the chart, following her chart-topping third effort, ‘Aaliyah,’ and the posthumously released compilation effort, ‘I Care 4 U’ (#3 peak).

At writing, ‘One in a Million’ was already certified double Platinum in the United States – a measure that denotes sales of 2 million in the country.  Streaming will undoubtedly help push the critically acclaimed LP to the next certification tier.

    Congrats Mama! Shine bright in heaven Baby Girl.

    I bought your album this second time and I’m so happy. You were my first album EVER purchased way back in the 90s, when I got my first CD Walkman.

    Rest easy angel, you are so loved ❤️

    Ah, the girl without whose demise (+ Moesha ending and that no-marriage marriage costing Brandy her career), Beyoncé wouldn’t have had the slot to be—like Nicki for 10 years with Remy jailed—the only whitewashed, blonde-haired, lighter-eyed “black” girl in the poppish scene SANS COMPETITION. Congrats, Baby Gurl & thanks for never showing thong or booty. 😇

        Thong straps popping out from under baggy/overall pants is one thang; shaking your dereon derriere in a “push up bra” for booties (while lip synching AT THAT) while your daughter watches on her dad’s lap from the audience is another.

    Keep Aaliyah’s name off this trash blog. Nothing but weirdos and obsessed MEN here being tough behind keyboards.

  7. What would Whitney do Wwwd August 25, 2021
