Frank Ocean’s “Blonde” Debuts At #1, But “Endless” Deemed Ineligible [BuzzAngle Top 10 Chart]
Frank Ocean's Blonde, his second studio album, debuted at #1 on the BuzzAngle Music U.S. Album Chart for the week of August 16, 2016 with 278,110 album project units, including 232K album sales and 69.1M audio streams.
Other top performing album debuts were I Told You by Tory Lanez at #4 and Brave Enough, the new album from Lindsey Stirling, at #5.
Last week , Billboard declared Ocean's visual album Endless"ineligible for its charts. “The 45-minute long music video is available, only as a full-length stream, exclusively through the Apple Music streaming service,” declared Billboard, “and because of that uniqueness, it is not currently eligible to chart."
The new week (of Friday, August 26) has a host of top new releases, including: Barbra Streisand’s Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, Florida Georgia Line’s Dig Your Roots, Britney Spears’ Glory, Young T.H.U.G.’s No, My Name is JEFFERY and Ingrid Michaelson’s It Doesn’t Have to Make Sense.
Project units are used to measure the value of the album’s total performance by using the combined weighted equivalent of its related consumption types (album sales, song sales and song streams).
