Nicki Minaj Is Queen of Australia’s Singles Chart

Nicki Minaj is the queen of Australia’s singles chart, while Yungblud cuts his first national chart crown with his self-titled third studio LP.

Yungblud (via Interscope/Universal) blasts to No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, the followup to the British alternative rock star’s 2020 sophomore effort Weird, which peaked at No. 6.

Yungblud does enough to deny Megadeth a week in the spotlight, as the U.S. thrash metal legends’ 16th studio album The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead (USM/Universal) arrives at No. 2.

Also new to the ARIA Chart this week is The Butterfly Effect, which spreads its wings for a No. 4 debut with IV (Ditto Music), the homegrown indie act’s long-awaited fourth studio album. IV is the band’s first new album drop in over 14 years, since 2008’s The Final Conversation of Kings.

The Brisbane-formed alternative metal outfit will hit the road in late September and October, for their first national tour since 2019.

Meanwhile, Tasmanian cult MC Wombat just misses out on a top 10 berth with his debut LP What Death Tastes Like (ADA/Warner), new at No. 12, while Sydney rockers Dear Seattle crack the top 40 with Someday (Domestic La La/Orchard), new at No. 31.

Over on the ARIA Singles Chart for the week of Sept. 12, 2022, Nicki Minaj’s “Super Freaky Girl” (via Universal) climbs 2-1 for its first week at the summit. It took “Super Freaky Girl” one month to complete its coronation, as OneRepublic’s Top Gun: Maverick hit “I Ain’t Worried” (up 4-2 via Interscope/Universal) and David Guetta & Bebe Rexha’s “I’m Good (Blue)” (up 19-3 via Warner) climb to new chart peaks.

 

Fans Choose Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Patient Number 9’ as This Week’s Favorite New Music

Ozzy Osbourne‘s latest album has topped this week’s new music poll.

Music fans voted in a poll published Friday (Sept. 9) on Billboard, choosing Osbourne’s Patient Number 9 as their favorite new music release of the past week.

Osbourne’s Patient Number 9 album brought in more than 33% of the vote, beating out new music by Kane Brown, Lewis Capaldi, NAV and more.

The 13-track Patient Number 9, which dropped on Sept. 9, features a number of rock’s elite — from Jeff Beck to Eric Clapton to Zakk Wydle to the late Taylor Hawkins, who makes a posthumous appearance on three songs throughout the set.

After a flurry of health issues over the past few years, Osbourne returned to performing live just before the album release, during halftime of Thursday night’s (Sept. 8) NFL season kick-off.

“I am going to put 110 percent into getting myself out there. Time is my most valuable asset now. I’m 73. I don’t think that I’ll be here in another 25 years,” Ozzy said in an interview published last week by Kerrang! magazine. “I’ve got a goal: the goal is to get back onstage. I had my last surgery in June, I can’t have any more. So whatever I make of it is entirely up to me now. Even if I manage one show, then fall over, [I’ll have done it]. But I know that I’m going to carry on. I know I can beat it. I know that I can get back onstage. It’s just that I’ve got to get off my butt and go for it.”

Trailing behind the new release from Osbourne on the fan-voted poll is Brown’s new album Different Man with 21% of the vote, and Capaldi’s new song “Forget Me,” with 7% of the vote.

Nicki Minaj Announces New Song ‘Love In the Way’ With Bleu

Nicki Minaj has even more new music on the way.

Fresh off the heels of her Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper “Super Freaky Girl,” the Queen of Rap announced through social media on Sunday (Sept. 11) that she’s teaming up with singer-rapper Bleu for the upcoming single “Love In the Way,” due out Sept. 16.

“#LoveInTheWay F R I D A Y @bleuvandross,” Minaj wrote on Instagram alongside a fierce-looking photo of the pair standing alongside each other.

Bleu — whose 2020 R&B EP, Love Scars: The 5 Stages of Emotions, debuted at No. 9 on the Top R&B Albums — shared the same cover art on Instagram. “HITS ONLY! Watch this,” he captioned the post, adding a flexing arm emoji.

“Love In the Way” follows Minaj’s Rick James-sampling track “Super Freaky Girl,” which topped the Hot 100 in late August, earning the hip-hop star her first solo No. 1 hit. She previously topped the Hot 100 with her appearances on “Trollz” alongside 6ix9ine and on the remix to Doja Cat’s “Say So.”

In recent days, Minaj also dropped the “Super Freaky Girl (Queen Mix),” a collaboration-fueled new cut with a long lineup including JT & BIA, featuring Katie Got Bandz, Akbar V and Malibu Mitch. The remix arrives less than a month after its initial drop as the lead song from the rapper’s first greatest-hits compilation, Queen Radio: Volume 1.

“Super Freaky Girl” is Minaj’s first release since “We Go Up” with Fivio Foreign in March. Prior to that, she dropped “Blick Blick” with Coi Leray, “Bussin” with Lil Baby, and “Do We Have A Problem?” with Lil Baby again — all from this year.

Last month, the “Do We Have a Problem?” rapper was honored as the recipient of this year’s Video Vanguard Award at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards. Ahead of accepting the award, she lit up the stage of Newark, N.J.’s Prudential Center with a medley of her biggest hits, including her verse on Kanye West’s “Monster,” as well as “Super Bass,” “Anaconda,” “Beez in the Trap,” “Roman’s Revenge,” “Chun-Li” and “Moment 4 Life.”

Morgan Wallen’s ‘Dangerous’ Breaks Top 10 Longevity Record on Billboard 200 Chart

Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album has broken the record for the most weeks in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart among albums by a singular artist.

The former No. 1 set collects an 86th nonconsecutive week in the top 10 on the chart (dated Sept. 17, rising from No. 5 to No. 2), surpassing the 85 nonconsecutive weeks tallied by Peter, Paul and Mary’s self-titled album in 1962-64. The latter album spent seven nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 in 1962-63 and included the top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hit “If I Had a Hammer.”

Dangerous debuted atop the Jan. 23, 2021-dated chart and spent its first 10 weeks at No. 1. It has only fallen out of the weekly top 10 once since its arrival on the list. It includes two Hot 100 top 10s and seven top 10s on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, including the No. 1s “7 Summers” and “Wasted on You.”

Seven albums still have more weeks in the top 10 than Dangerous — and all are multi-artist soundtracks and cast recordings. See list, below.

Since the Billboard 200 began publishing on a regular weekly basis, with the March 24, 1956-dated chart, the album with the most weeks in the top 10 is the original cast recording of My Fair Lady, with 173 weeks in the top 10 between 1956-60. The seven albums with the most weeks in the top 10 are all cast recordings or film soundtracks. (See list, below.)

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units, compiled by Luminate. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new Sept. 17, 2022-dated chart will be posted in full on Billboard‘s website on Tuesday (Sept. 13). For all chart news, follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.

Albums With Most Weeks in Top 10 on Billboard 200 Chart (March 24, 1956-onwards)
Weeks in Top 10, Artist, Title, Year First Reached Top 10
173, Original Cast, My Fair Lady, 1956
109, Soundtrack, The Sound of Music, 1965
106, Soundtrack, West Side Story, 1962
105, Original Cast, The Sound of Music, 1960
90, Soundtrack, South Pacific, 1958
87, Original Cast, Camelot, 1961

85, Peter, Paul and Mary, Peter Paul and Mary, 1962
84, Adele, 21, 2011
84, Bruce Springsteen, Born in the U.S.A., 1984
(through the Sept. 17, 2022-dated chart.) 

Dangerous has been a monster-sized hit on the Billboard 200, becoming one of only four country albums with at least 10 weeks at No. 1 on the chart. It also finished 2021 as the year-end No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.

Dangerous debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 dated Jan. 23, 2021, and has left the weekly top 10 only once, on the Jan. 1, 2022-dated list, when it was squeezed out by a number of older holiday albums (typical for the season on the chart).

On Feb. 2, 2021, in the middle of the album’s fourth week of release, a video emerged showing Wallen using the N-word. He subsequently issued an apology. Reaction from the industry was swift, and his music was removed from dozens of high-profile playlists on streamers, and multiple radio groups dropped his music. However, on the Billboard 200, the album posted a gain in units earned during its fourth week and held at No. 1. Wallen spent 2021 out of the spotlight, but has been re-embraced by streamers and country radio (he recently notched his seventh top 10 on the Country Airplay chart, dated Aug. 27). He’s also donated at least $500,000 to charitable causes, including the National Museum of African American Music in Nashville and Rock Against Racism. Earlier in 2022, Wallen performed at the Billboard Music Awards (May 15), marking his first performance at major awards ceremony since being caught on video using the slur. At the awards, he took home the trophy for top country male artist. (In 2021, he won three Billboard Music Awards, but was not invited to accept them during the broadcast.)

Some history on the Billboard 200 chart: The list began publishing as a regular, weekly fixture with the March 24, 1956-dated chart, where Harry Belafonte’s Belafonte was the No. 1 album in the U.S. At the time, the chart was only 10-positions and was named Best Selling Pop Albums. (Its name would change only a week later, to Best Selling Popular Albums.)

Prior to March 24, 1956, Billboard had tracked album popularity, but not consistently. The first overall album chart appeared 11 years earlier, on March 24, 1945. That chart was published on an irregular basis until it became a weekly fixture starting with the March 24, 1956 issue of Billboard magazine.

Notably, for a little over four years (between May 25, 1959-Aug. 10, 1963), the album chart was split into two separate lists, each tracking the sales of mono or stereo-recorded albums. These two charts were named Best Selling Monophonic LPs and Best Selling Stereophonic LPs. The names of the charts would change slightly over time, but Billboard would publish two charts for mono and stereo albums until Aug. 10, 1963. The following week, Aug. 17, 1963, the mono and stereo charts folded back into one overall chart.

The chart would grow to 200 positions in 1967. In 1992, and after a number of name changes, the chart would settle on its current name, Billboard 200.

For the above list of the albums with the most weeks in the top 10, if an album charted on both the mono and stereo chart, its total weeks in the top 10 is its combined total across both charts (without duplicating weeks). So, if an album was in the top 10 on both the mono and stereo chart in the same week, that counts as one week in the top 10.

As for how the Billboard 200 chart is compiled… through the May 18, 1991-dated chart, the chart ranked the week’s top-selling albums in the U.S., based on reports obtained from record stores. On the May 25, 1991-dated chart, the list began using electronically monitored point-of-sale purchase information courtesy of SoundScan, Inc. (now known as Luminate).

The chart would continue to rank the week’s top-selling albums, by traditional album sales, through the Dec. 6, 2014-dated chart. The following week (Dec. 13, 2014), the list transformed again, becoming a multi-metric popularity chart, ranking overall consumption, as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album.

Because of how the Billboard 200 is now compiled — where a lengthy tracklist can help accrue large streaming totals — an album like Dangerous (which debuted with 30 songs and was later reissued with three bonus tracks) profits greatly from the continued weekly streams of its hefty tracklist. Many high-charting albums on the Billboard 200 now have long tracklists. In 2022, across the 18 albums that have been No. 1, the average album length is 20 tracks.

Further, older albums (known as catalog albums; generally defined today as titles 18 months old or older), were mostly restricted from charting on the Billboard 200 from May 25, 1991-Nov. 28, 2009. From Dec. 5, 2009-onwards, catalog and current (new/recently released) albums chart together on the Billboard 200. Today, older albums regularly spend hundreds of weeks on the chart — such as Journey’s Greatest Hits (more than 700 weeks) and Eminem’s Curtain Call: The Hits (nearly 600). Based on its track record thus far, one can imagine Dangerous could be on the Billboard 200 for hundreds of weeks to come.

Bad Bunny’s ‘Un Verano Sin Ti’ Hits 10th Week at No. 1, Most Weeks Atop Billboard 200 in Over a Year

Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart dated Sept. 17 (rising 2-1) for a 10th nonconsecutive week atop the list. It now solely has the most weeks at No. 1 in 2022, surpassing the nine weeks logged by the Encanto soundtrack. Further, Un Verano Sin Ti has the most weeks at No. 1 in over a year, since Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album spent 10 weeks (all consecutive, from its debut) at No. 1 (Jan. 23-March 27, 2021, charts).

Un Verano Sin Ti earned 99,500 equivalent album units in the U.S. (down 6%) in the week ending Sept. 8, according to Luminate.

Also in the top 10 of the new Billboard 200, Megadeth notches its eighth top 10 with the No. 3 debut of The Sick, the Dying… and the Dead!, while Romeo Santos earns his fourth top 10 with the No. 10 bow of Fórmula, Vol. 3. Plus, Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album breaks the record for the most weeks in the top 10 among albums by a singular artist, as it clocks an 86th nonconsecutive week in the region.

*through the Sept. 17, 2022-dated chart.

Un Verano Sin Ti debuted at No. 1 on the May 21-dated Billboard 200 and has yet to depart the top two rungs of the chart for its entire 18-week run on the list thus far. Since August of 1963, when Billboard combined its separate stereo and mono album charts into one single album chart, Un Verano Sin Ti is the first album to spend its first 18 weeks on the chart in the top two. (See more history on the Billboard 200, which began publishing as a regular, weekly fixture in March of 1956.)

Previously, Drake’s Views spent its first 17 weeks in the top two, on the May 21-Sept. 10, 2016-dated charts.

Un Verano Sin Ti has bounced between Nos. 1 and 2 on the Billboard 200 for a total of six distinct visits to the No. 1 slot. See list, below.

Wallen’s chart-topping Dangerous: The Double Album climbs 5-2 on the new Billboard 200, with 48,000 equivalent album units earned (down 5%).

Dangerous: The Double Album has now accumulated 86 nonconsecutive weeks in the top 10 on the Billboard 200, and breaks the record for the most weeks in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart among albums by a singular artist — since the chart began publishing on a regular, weekly basis in March of 1956. It surpasses the 85 weeks logged in the top 10 by Peter, Paul and Mary’s self-titled album in 1962-64.

However, there are seven albums that have more weeks in the top 10 than Dangerous — and all are multi-artist soundtracks and cast recordings, led by the all-time top 10 record holder, the original cast recording of My Fair Lady, with 173 weeks in the top 10 between 1956-60. See list, below.

Albums With Most Weeks in Top 10 on Billboard 200 Chart (March 24, 1956-onwards)

Megadeth’s The Sick, the Dying… and the Dead! debuts at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, notching the rock band its eighth top 10-charting album. The set launches with nearly 48,000 equivalent album units earned. Of that sum, album sales comprise 45,000, SEA units comprise 3,000 (equaling 3.6 million on-demand streams of the set’s songs) and TEA units comprise a neglible sum.

Megadeth scored its first top 10 on the Billboard 200 a little more than 30 years ago, when Countdown to Extinction debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the Aug. 1, 1992-dated chart. The act has since visited the top 10 with Youthanasia (No. 4, 1994), Cryptic Writings (No. 10, 1997), United Abominations (No. 8, 2007), Endgame (No. 9, 2009), Super Collider (No. 6, 2013), Dystopia (No. 3, 2016) and The Sick, the Dying… and the Dead!

A quartet of former No. 1s is next up on the Billboard 200. DJ Khaled’s God Did falls to No. 4 from its debut atop the list a week ago, as it earned 45,000 equivalent album units in its second week (down 58%). Harry StylesHarry’s House rises 9-5 with 43,000 units (up 2%), Beyoncé’s Renaissance is a non-mover at No. 6 with 41,000 units (down 12%) and Rod Wave’s Beautiful Mind rises 8-7 with 36,000 units (down 17%).

The Weeknd’s hits compilation The Highlights rises 13-8 with 29,000 equivalent album units earned (up 1%) and TWICE’s Between 1&2: 11th Mini Album falls 3-9 in its second week with 28,000 units (down 73%).

Santos closes out the top 10 as his latest release, Fórmula, Vol. 3, debuts at No. 10 with 26,000 equivalent album units earned. It’s the fourth top 10-charting effort for the artist on the list. Of its starting sum, SEA units comprise 23,500 (equaling 33.1 million on-demand streams of the set’s songs), album sales comprise 2,000 and TEA units comprise 500.

‘Dreams Come True!’: 5 Highlights from Camilo’s ‘De Adentro Pa’ Afuera’ Miami Tour Stop

Camilo continues to make his dreams come true, as he repeatedly stated, officially making the pitstop of his De Adentro Pa’ Afuero tour stop at the FTX Arena in Miami on Saturday night (Sept. 10).

Around 9:05 p.m., the Colombian singer-songwriter ran onstage with the opening track “KESI,” instantly transmitting pure joy and happiness to the sold-out venue with fans of all ages. The stage setting was simple yet captured his essence: a microphone, a four-member band, his emblematic “tribu” logo in neon lights, and a round tapestry rug.

After performing the second track, “Ropa Cara,” Camilo greeted the audience. “Good evening, Miami, good evening tribu,” he said. “Being here is another example that dreams come true. Last year, I was so happy I was able to be at the Fillmore, and a year later, we are here,” he added with a smile on his face before performing “Mi Lugar Favorito” and “Pesadilla.”

The magical night closed around 10:20 p.m., wrapping up with “Aeropuerto,” part of his new album and inviting his band and Evaluna to the front of the stage and thanking everyone for a special evening.

Below, check out more highlights from Camilo’s concert.

New music live: Four days after releasing his new album forthcoming album, De Adentro Pa’ Fuera, Camilo performed various singles, such as “Nasa,” “Ambulancia” and “Alaska,” among others.

Heartfelt conversations: If the name of his new studio album and tour is any indication (from inside out), the night was all about connecting with his beloved fans “la tribu,” while sharing thoughtful and inspirational quotes. “The mind can tell us that our heart will never heal, and we believe it because that’s our mind, and it takes control,” he said, asking everyone who’s felt defeated, heartbroken, and emotional, to hold their flashlight up.

The artist emphasized that these feelings of sadness, however strong they may feel, were only temporary, and you were not alone. “Can I show you why you are not alone? If there is someone tonight that once in their lifetime went through the same feeling, but their heart is back up, I want you to put your flashlight up; if you ever thought you were not going to pass through this, and you did, put your flashlight high up. And now I ask you all to look around, and look how all these flashlights are lightning, if you ever go through that again, please remember this moment.”

Evaluna Montaner: As in any Camilo show, you will know that his only surprise guest is almost always his wife, singer and actress Evaluna Montaner. “Flowers are born from the cracks, the heart will always wait for true love,” Camilo reminded everyone before he invited his wife, and mother of his daughter Índigo, onstage. The couple proceed to perform “Por Primera Vez,” “Machu Pichu,” and “Índigo.” Making their dreams come true, the couple shared how they both wanted to perform at the FTX Arena together and Evaluna assured “it will happen one day.”

A mirror concert: In the many moments Camilo had with the audience, he talked about how difficult it is to be in a world where everything is measured by the number of “likes,” recalling how La Tribu made him feel the great value he had. “I hope tonight you can feel this concert as a mirror, to feel how great you are all and be like wow, there’s nobody like me. So today the celebration is for the type of person that you are.” In a reflective way, he also told his fans that they weren’t there to see him in concert but instead, it was him who went to see his fans.

A moment to disconnect: One of the most magical moment of the night was when the artist asked everyone in the venue to put their phone away for the performance of his single “De Adentro Pa’ Afuera.” Reason being, he wanted fans to connect with his voice and live the moment. The energy at the moment was very special and immaculate.

He joins the star-studded lineup that includes Romeo Santos, Nicky Jam, Chayanne, Maluma, Ivy Queen, Grupo Firme, Bizarrap, and many more. Registration is now open at BillboardLatinMusicWeek.com.
