Beyond its domination of the movie box office (racking up over $1 billion globally as we reported here), the live action remake of ‘The Lion King’ is being celebrated for its contributions to the music realm as well.  In addition to cracking the top 15 of the Billboard 200 with its official soundtrack, Pop superstar Beyonce – who stars as ‘Nala’ in the film –  debuted at #2 on the same chart with her new project, ‘The Gift’ (which was inspired by the film).

Following the re-entry of 2016’s ‘Lemonade’ and her live album, ‘Homecoming,’ ‘The Gift’ came as her third trip to the top 10 of the tally this year alone.  And, while its lead single – the anthemic ‘Spirit’ – sent fans soaring into a frenzy upon the release of its colorful, African-influenced music video, its roar may be proving bigger than its bite.

A return to prominence is proving itself elusive (to say the least) for Rap star Iggy Azalea.

Surviving ridicule from some of the genre’s biggest names, label drama, and a highly publicized breakup from basketballer/former fiance Nick Young, the Grammy-nominated diva not only soldiered through to deliver bop after bop from her long-awaited sophomore album, ‘In My Defense’ (see:  ‘Sally Walker,’ ‘Started,’ F*** It Up,’ and more), but did so as an independent artist.

Despite her unwavering fight, the project – released July 19 – had to battle chart titans in the form of Ed Sheeran and Beyonce‘s respective efforts (and other top-sellers).  The result?  It debuted at #50 on the Billboard 200 to the tune of a reported 8,000 units SPS shifted.

Remembering how its predecessor, 2014’s ‘The New Classic,’ debuted at #3 on the same chart, Azalea took to Twitter to share her disappointment with the new LP’s figures.  Read her statement inside:
