Meek Mill Brags Of Sales Success Amid Chart Controversy: 

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.

Meek also had words for the wave riders:

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.
