This thread is brought to you by the numbers 3 and 49.
Roddy Ricch tops both the Hot 100 and the BB200 this week. “Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial” moves 97K in equivalent albums including 1K in traditional albums. Roddy sees a 31% increase in equivalent albums over last week, but some of that is because they now include video streams in the BB200 chart. The popularity of his video for “The Box” counts for many of those video streams. “The Box” tops the Hot 100. Justin Bieber’s new single “Yummy” arrives on the chart at number 2.
On the album chart, Harry Styles’s “Fine Line” is 3rd (lw 4th) with 49K (-9%).
