Christina Aguilera's new album 'Liberation' sells 62K in pure sales

Christina Aguilera's new album 'Liberation' debuted at #6 on the Billboard 200 with 68K units (62K pure sales). Christina's ticket bundle may have helped boost sales, but the fact that she sold 62K traditional sales out of her 68K meant that her fans were actually interested in BUYING her shit, as opposed to just streaming it.

Beyoncé & Jay Z's album sells just 69K in pure sales #yikes

Beyoncé and Jay Z's joint album 'Everything is Love' debuted at #2 selling just 69,996 in pure sales and 124,470 with SPS. These numbers are very underwhelming. The album wasn't really great to begin with. However, that Tidal-exclusive window did them no favours on top of not having a full sales tracking week. It would have faired better had they just went for a traditional roll-out.

Rihanna @ Ocean's 8 London premiere #snapshots

Last night saw Rihanna attend the Ocean's 8 London premiere at Cineworld Leicester Square. Rih's fashion is usually impeccable. Chick had a fight with a Quality Street toffee penny and lost! A good stylist that knows how to properly outfit her increased size would benefit her I think. That said, her face is still beautiful.
