Follow-up to this post.
Billboard is delaying the release of their charts and released a statement:
A top-tier data provider has encountered technical issues, preventing the delivery of its data to Nielsen Music (which provides the sales, streaming and airplay information for Billboard's charts).
Due to this issue, and because there is a close race for No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, Billboard is holding back the release of all of its Aug. 12-dated charts until we get further clarity from the data provider.
Sketchy, are they waiting for Tidal's fake streams to push Meek's album to #1? Just asking.
lana is going to get screwed by Billboard again...
