Tekashi 6ix9ine's "DUMMY BOY" officially settles for #2.
The debate between whether Astroworld and DUMMY BOY took the top spot on the Billboard 200 has finally come to a close. TMZ reports that Billboard has officially dubbed Travis Scott's latest album as the official number one album of the week with Tekashi 6ix9ine's latest project coming in as the runner-up. As previously reported, the album sales for Travis Scott and Tekashi 6ix9ine's albums were extremely close, but clearly, Travis came out on top.
"In a historically close race, after a rigorous review of the process and the methodology by which the No. 1 ranking on last week’s Billboard 200 album chart was awarded to Travis Scott’s ‘Astroworld,’ we concluded that no correction was warranted," a spokesperson for Billboard said.
Unfortunately, the recount was believed to be necessary since Nielsen -- the company that compiles sales and streaming data for Billboard -- revealed that there was some sort of discrepancy in the sales for the week. Clearly, that wasn't the case hence why Travis Scott's ASTROWORLD earned a third non-consecutive week at the top of the chart. Billboard's simply going with the original data since they believe there's no need for a recount.
The same week that Travis Scott's album hit the top of the Billboard 200, he also earned his first #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 with "SICKO MODE" featuring Drake.
Congrats to Travis Scott.
