Comment: It is a pretty sad state of affairs when French Montana makes the # 3 spot on 52K equivalency units (meaning they include streaming) and 16K actual sales: meaning, sales are coming to an end indeed. The question though is how closely does it mirror Spotify’s streaming charts, and the answer is: the top five stream is Luis, which isn’t on here, but then DJ Khaled twice, Kendrick, 21 Savage, and French Montana -so there is a connection. The Billboard 200 is a little like the Nielsens in the 90s, it isn’t exact but it remains the best we have. Billboard claim Khalid returns to the Top 10 because “Location” remains in the top 40 with 250K streams on Spotify alone.
