Chris Stapleton Makes It Two Weeks Atop The Billboard 200   
Chris Stapleton sure came up – big time. After reentering the Billboard 200 with his critically lauded debut Traveller at number one, Stapleton keeps the top spot warm. Why is this surprising this week? There were several new albums, but none of them had the support to unseat the country singer/songwriter. Interestingly, Stapleton still had a big impact, to the tune of 124,000 units (78% of those were sales).

The newbies also couldn’t take the runner-up spot, with Eric Church’s surprise effort Mr. Misunderstood improving from #3 to #2 despite losing support. Still, with a modest 65,000 uni...

Chris Brown settles for the #2 spot behind Streisand, as X sells 146,000 copies. While Brown might be disappointed he didn’t score his third number one album, X performed better its first week than Fortune, which sold 135,000 copies. Maybe even ...

Five Music Takeaways from 2013

The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2
Ah, there is always plenty to write about the music industry and the number of trends that come and go, as well as those remaining constant.  2013 was another interesting year, whether merely for its pleasant surprises or its disappointments.  Many observations will and can be made of the year musically and pop-culturally in regards to its artists.  While my inner musical nerdy side wishes that I could nitpick and analyze every facet microscopically, I’ll rely on a Childish Gambino rhyme to express why that’s not possible: “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” What I do have time for is to shar...

Thoughts On The 56th Annual Grammy Nominations

12/9/2013 8:50pm EST
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
The Grammys are like a musician’s Super Bowl, even if the nominations and victorious artists are flawed.  I won’t lie to you, I complain every year that someone won a Grammy that didn’t deserve it while someone else was snubbed. Just last year, during the 55th Annual Grammys, I lobbied hard for Frank Ocean (looking back, I have reservations now) while Mumford & Sons walked out with the Album of the Year trophy.  The year that Taylor Swift won for Fearless, my girl Beyoncé was on a roll until the coveted Album of the Year award was read.  You get my position though! This year,  I find myself...
