Comment: Seven of the top ten are new this week, which means a lot of things will be changed by next week. The question is, does Nielsen have the correct formula to accurately formulate popularity? I think so, the volatility seems to prove it. Somebody somewhere is certainly making money, Universal just got valued at $23B -four time sits value four years ago. Meanwhile, Lil Uzi “there is anger beneath these sunglasses” Vert in at # 1 and here is how Billboard breaks it down: “total debut units, 28,000 are in traditional album sales. The album is powered mostly by SEA units: 100,000 — translating to 150.6 million on-demand audio streams of the tracks on the album. The rest of the album’s starting figure is 7,000 TEA units.”
