Luke Bryan Stays At No. 1

Luke Bryan Makes It Two Weeks Atop Billboard 200
It’s hard to topple a king, and that’s exactly what country singer Luke Bryan is this week. After dropping Kill The Lights with robust numbers last week, Bryan manages to keep the top spot warm for a second consecutive week. No, he couldn’t score another 345,000 units, but he was good enough for another 99,000. Sophomore week blues happen to everybody, even when you’re a “Country Man” like Bryan.

So with Luke at the top once more, were there any newbies that debuted in the top 10? Yes. Melanie Martinez entered at #6 with her unique debut effort Cry Baby moving 40,000 units. The numbe...

Billboard 200 Sees Some Big Numbers

Luke Bryan And Dr. Dre Bring Some Much Needed Life To the Billbo
Last week on the Billboard 200 charts was a pitiful one. In case you missed it, the soundtrack to Disney’s made-for-TV movie Descendants debuted atop the charts, moving a tepid 42,000 units. Ouch! Such abysmal numbers are not the case for this week though, and music executives everywhere should be taking victory laps in the regard – preferably like in Blues Brothers.

Moving on, Luke Bryan unsurprisingly secured the top spot this week, easily dropping 345,000 units of Kill The Lights. While Bryan didn’t sell 345,000 copies, most of those according to Billboard were pure sales (320,000 o...
