Meek Mill and Tyler, The Creator Fighting for No. 1 Spot on Billboard Chart
It's been another major week for the music community, as tons of big releases became accessible to our ears, but it's resulting in a fierce competition for the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Meek Mill's Wins & Losses album and Tyler, The Creator's Flower Boy project are reportedly fighting for the top spot, but they're also up against Lana Del Rey, who dropped her Lust for Life album last week as well.
According to Billboard, Meek could move between 90,000 and 95,000 equivalent units, while Tyler could tally 85,000 to 95,000 units. Lana is estimated to move around 85,000 to 90,000, herself.
The top spot could be a gigantic feat for all three artists, as it would serve as the Odd Future co-founder's first No. 1 album of his career and would mark a major comeback for Meek, whose sophomore project from 2015, Dreams Worth More Than Money, also debuted at No. 1. It would also be a great return for Del Rey, as she has also debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart previously for Ultraviolence, which helped her become one of Kanye West's favorite artists.
To earn the No. 1 spot on the albums chart, each artist must earn the highest amount of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The units moved will be calculated for this week, and the rankings will be officially unveiled this Sunday, July 30.
We'll have to see who earns the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 between Meek, Tyler, and Lana, but for now, we know fans are enjoying the music.
