The Weeknd Beats 2 Chainz on the Billboard Charts, Still Loses to Country Singer


Via GlobalGrind:

Abel Tesfaye’s proper debut album came so close to hitting #1 this week, but anyone who reads the charts reguarly knows that country music is really running the game right now. Keith Urban barely edged out The Weeknd’s Kiss Land to take the #1 spot. The XO camp still has plenty to celebrate – Kiss Land’s 97,000 copies beat out 2 Chainz, whose B.O.A.T.S. II #MeTime moved 60,000 units. The first installment of B.O.A.T.S debuted at #1 with 147,000 copies, which goes to show that maybe the world isn’t ready for hashtags in album titles.
