Last week Hip-Hop took the crown for being the most popular music genre in the United States for the first time in history!
This week, the reign continues, on Billboard, with three of your favorite rappers taking the top spots on the charts. For a second consecutive week, rap elite, Jay-Z continued his number 1 hold on the Billboard 200 albums chart with 4:44. Jay-Z’s newest album pulled in 61,000 in album sales while Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN took the number two spot on the charts. Lamar’s DAMN continues to be a part of the chart’s top three since the LP’s number one debut.
Rounding out the chart’s Top 3 is French Montana’s Jungle Rules, racking in 52,000 units for the LP.
Hip Hop is definitely ruling the throne!
