Meek Mill Brags Of Sales Success Amid Chart Controversy

By HHL Editors

The Billboard Album charts are being delayed this week with Meek Mill,  Tyler, The Creator, and Lana Del Rey locked in a three-way battle for number one.

Each of the trio's albums is right around 100K sales plus streaming.  But it looks like Meek's going to finish third even after getting a controversial 12K boost from placing Wins And Losses in front of Tidal's paywall and gobbling up free, easy-to-manipulate spins.

Yesterday evening, Meek Mill highlighted another sales chart -- the Hip Hop/Rap chart on iTunes -- as he bragged about all of his platinum plaques.

Few more platinum plaques today ...... I want more tho so we can shoot dice on em! #winsandlosses

Meek also had words for the wave riders:

Y'all riding waves to stay afloat one day you gone drown #winsandlosses

Update: Billboard's final numbers just came in. They are:

1. Lana Del Rey Lust for Life 107K 2. Tyler, The Creator Flower Boy 106K 3. Meek Mill Wins & Losses 102K

It's the first time in 2017 where the top three albums are debuts that each earned more than 100,000 units.
