Billboard 200: SZA’s ‘SOS’ BLOCKS Pink’s ‘Trustfall’ from #1 Despite Selling Less Than 1% of Pop Star’s Pure Sales

Published: Sunday 26th Feb 2023 by Sam

After a fierce battle, SZA has triumphed over Pink on the Billboard 200.

Full story below…

This week on the coveted count, the R&B singer’s sophomore ‘SOS’ has clocked its 10th week at #1 after selling 87,000 equivalent units.

The LP faced stiff competition from Pop rebel, whose ‘Trustfall’ project mounted a strong campaign but ultimately could not rise above the #2 spot.

Preceded by singles Never Gonna Not Dance Again’ and the LP’s title track, the set shifted 74,500 equivalent units.

Here’s where things get interesting.

This week’s showdown ultimately boiled down to opposing strengths and weaknesses.

For, Pink’s pure sales pull saw a combination of various physical and digital download formats amounting to 59,000 of her total sum.

On SZA’s end, pure sales only amounted to 500 (yes, 500) of her overall total. A figure that represents less than 1% of Pink’s pure numbers.

However, SZA’s streaming gravitas is what ultimately helped her pull ahead. Because, with 118.39 million on-demand official streams of the album’s 23 tracks, the TDE songstress generated 86,000 equivalent units.

In reigning at #1, the soulful songbird has achieved her 10th week at the top with the beloved album.

While this is Pink’s first album since 2012’s ‘The Truth About Love’ to miss the top spot, it marks her 8th consecutive studio effort to debut in the top 10 of the Billboard 200.

    • Candace Owens February 26, 2023

      SHAYLA, I’m gonna r$pe your azzz baby and make you watch. You’ll probably love it since you already sell videos of the same thing on the Darky web.

      But, since you are a white gay man, you have no baby!
      But, if by the RARE chance you do, I hope it DIES!!!!!

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 February 26, 2023

    • Fancy BISH 💎 February 26, 2023

      You are obviously stupid, do you even know what privilege means? If she had white privilege, then she would be on top because of it. You truly are a stupid porch mönkêy with no education. Darkie excellence 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • I don’t burn in the sun February 26, 2023

        This White privileged toilet completed dyké btch is BLOCKED by a real artist get tf over it already f a g g ot 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • Fancy BISH 💎 February 26, 2023

        @I don’t burn in the sun. What LIES! Are you typing? Darkies do burn in the sun. Too much exposure to the sun can also cause hyperpigmentation and photoaging manifestations, and then they go ashy.

        You are also truly a stupid porch mönkêy with no education, go and read a book before you try to reply to my comment. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 February 26, 2023

      Black excellence is as rare as white trash. That’s why they’re phrases as both are so rare that they stand out.

    • RihannaHatesU February 26, 2023

  3. RBRT February 26, 2023

  4. Lewey February 26, 2023

    I’m tired of her fake streams. They are not real. I never see her music being purchased or anyone talking about it, but it’s been number 1 for 10 weeks thanks to streaming? Her tours are not sold out. This is bizarre and I’ve been saying it seems fake from the get go.

    • Credits February 26, 2023

      I went to the SOS tour in my city. Sza filled an entire stadium! This is real.

    • FAF February 26, 2023

      Literally everybody is talking about this album

    • LaTavia Roberson February 26, 2023

      Because y’all old f*** still listening to Lady Gaga. SZA’s music is literally everywhere. She is currently on a SOLD OUT arena tour. Y’all just be saying anything on here…

      • BigFAGhatesCOONS February 26, 2023

        Dumb COOON. Never get the stink off your Shyt smelling brown shyt skin.

    • HELLOKITTY February 26, 2023

      @Lewey – That’s because they ARE fake numbers. hahaha! Your observations are correct.

  5. SZA February 26, 2023
