  • Oh Well

    “Great news all around for R&B/Hip Hop” LMAOOOO!

    Crazy how you people think this is a win when the rest of the industry laughs at those numbers! smh Guess i’ll congratulate my son for getting a C+ on his test in about 20 years!

    ^ “these rest of the industry laughs”? the highest selling artists are eminem, wayne, drake, adele, kanye west, jay z, taylor swift, and justin timberlake. most of those are rapper. Who is laughing exactly?

  • MewLover34

    If anyone is laughing at The Weeknd moving 100k they must be high as fuck.

  • Will Da God

    Oh well

    You keep forgetting the platinum breakers are hip hop rappers not rock artist lol. In other words we are laughing at the industry.


    Do you know how much influence Hip Hop music has on the music industry?

    The only problem is that they don’t use it to their advantage.

  • al

    Both albums were dope, fuck sales and listen to the music… faggots

  • woah though

    I feel bad for the kid who was born to that fool who commented first. He’d probably be proud of your C+, huh pops?

  • DJ DHamp

    how tf does weeknd sell more than Titt?? Weeknds dope but it seems like 2 Chainz is fukn everywhere

  • Da Spaniard

    lol @ 2chainz 61k

  • ianism

    @DJ DHamp cause people who listen to the weeknd actually give a shit about the artist, whereas everyone knows 2chains in a fucking clown.
    also, much respect to Janelle. i bought her album

  • RSX


    Weeknd’s fans listen for his bodies of work. Chainz’s fans want hot singles.

    Case in Point: No Lie was #1 when BOATS was released; ~150K. Feds Watching peaked at ~20ish; ~60K

  • We all know janelle monae album is like 10x better than the weekend and 2chainz.
