Another win for X's camp.
XXXTentacion passed on this Summer, but his legacy lives on. The late rapper's mother and team pieced together his posthumous Skins album, and the project was a hit among fans. As reported by Billboard, Skins has earned the number one spot on their album-fueled 200 chart. The project awards X his second number one album, and it moved 132,000 equivalent album units in the week ending December 13. 52,000 of those were from pure record sales. Billboard also notes that Skins is the first posthumous number one album since Prince’s The Very Best of Prince re-entered the charts in May of 2016 following his death.
Meek Mill’s Championships dropped down to number 2 in its second week, moving 129,000 equivalent album units. Michael Bublé’s legendary Christmas album crept up to the third spot, the highest position the album has held in six years. One would assume that the new streaming calculations helped with that. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack takes the third spot. Gucci Mane earned his fifth top 10 album with Evil Genius grabbing the fifth spot. Gucci sold 51,000 equivalent album units, with 5,000 in pure sales. Travis Scott's Astroworld is still hanging onto top ten status with the sixth spot. Trav moved 44,000 equivalent album units. Congratulations to all those artists that made the cut!
