Update: Busta Rhymes’ Standing On The Charts Changes, SoundScan Recalculates Sales Figures
Yesterday’s (May 27) Nielsen SoundScan report has been corrected. While it originally had Redman and Method Man’s reunion album Blackout 2 ranked higher than Busta Rhymes’ Back On My B.S., the updated figures put the Dungeon Dragon over the dynamic duo.
Busta’s numbers are the same as yesterday’s, with 59,100 fans picking up the New York vets’ 8th solo album, but his standing on the Billboard 200 has changed, with him moving up one spot to no 5.
Red and Meth sold close to 6,000 units less than the 63,800 tally that was mistakenly reported early Wednesday morning. With the new stats the Def Jam rappers fall three spots to no. 7 on the charts.
All of the other stats remain the same on the charts with Eminem’s Relapse sitting at the top. – Elan Mancini
