Quantcast
YOUR TOP 15, BROUGHT TO YOU BY RIRI (UPDATE)

Based on early reads, it looks like Rihanna's highly anticipated, surprise release, ANTI (Westbury Road/Roc Nation), will top this week's album sales chart with approximately 125k even after giving away a million albums. Keep in mind that's a strictly digital number, as the physical version won't street 'til this Friday (2/5). XL/Columbia's Adele will consequently slide down to #2 again in her 11th week out.
