The Lonely Island Debuts In Top 20 On Billboard Charts

LONELY ISLAND3

This week found hip-hop notably absent from the top 50 spots on the Billboard 200. Although chart mainstays Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis continue to hold steady in the upper echelon of the charts, the only new album to make a splash came from Lonely Island, who’s third album The Wack Album debuted at No. 12 with over 26,000 copies sold.
