Rihanna’s ‘Anti’ Returns To Top Of Album Chart Despite Selling Less Than 20K Copies

Robbie Daw | March 21, 2016 1:14 pm

Over the past week, Rihanna‘s Anti sold a lowly 17,000 copies, but moved a total of 54,000 album units when streaming was factored in. It’s the top LP on the Billboard 200 for a second, non-consecutive week.

On the flip side, the #10 album — Flatbush Zombies‘ debut 3001: A Laced Odyssey — sold 7,000 more copies than Anti did. Such is the state of the main album chart in the era of SEA and TEA.

As mentioned last week, it’s been a relative lull with no big releases lately, pop pickers. So we likely won’t see much of a shakeup until Gwen Stefani and Zayn’s new ones impact over the next two weeks.

The Top 10 of the Billboard 200:

1. Rihanna, Anti *2 weeks*
2. Adele, 25
3. Justin Bieber, Purpose
4. Joey + Rory, Hymns
5. Kendrick Lamar, untitled unmastered.
6. Killswitch Engage, Incarnate *new*
7. Chris Stapleton, Traveller
8. Twenty One Pilots, Blurryface
9. Kevin Gates, Islah
10. Flatbush Zombies, 3001: A Laced Odyssey *new*
