Beyonce’s “Cowboy Carter” Holds on to Top of Album Chart, But Falls 69% in Second Week


Beyonce has finished her second week at number 1 with “Cowboy Carter.”

It wasn’t easy. The album fell 69% from the debut week, selling 131,020 copies according to

The number 2 album from J. Cole followed with 118,000 copies. So it was close.

For paid downloads and CDs, Beyonce was trounced by K Poppers Tomorrow x Together. Whoever they are, they sold 102,000 hard copies of their album. There wasn’t much streaming. As always with K Pop, all numbers are questionable.

The Black Keys sold 22,960 CDs and downloads of their “Ohio Players” album. This is a weird title since it has nothing to do with the actual famous funk group, The Ohio Players. I don’t know what that’s all about.

Taylor Swift still has SEVEN Albums in the top 50. Next Thursday night she has a new album which will arrive at number 1. This will never end!
