Unsurprisingly, Ariana Grande scored the second #1 album of her short recording career with My Everything. My Everything opened impressively selling 169,000 copies, trumping the opening sales of 2013 effort, Yours Truly (138,000 copies). 169,000 copies is robust by today’s standards by all means, but had My Everything came out a couple of years ago, think about how many hundred thousands of copies it might’ve sold. To quote Mary J. Blige (at least partially), “Reminisce on the” sales of the past…

Wiz Khalifa Takes ‘Blacc Hollywood’ To The Top: This Week in Music

Wiz Khalifa has been high many times in his life – he’d probably say the same thing – but he’s never been #1 on the Billboard 200. This week, after two previous albums, Wiz Khalifa’s latest album Blacc Hollywood sold 90,000 copies, easily sufficient for #1. While Wiz had never debuted at the penthouse, both his previous albums actually moved more copies their first week. 2011 effort Rolling Papers sold a robust 197,000 copies, while 2012 LP O.N.I.F.C. sold 148,000. Each album by the kush lover has sold less. Still, Wiz should celebrate…then again maybe he should ease up on Mary Jane. ...
