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.

In other news, Donald Trump offered an uncharacteristically humble concession speech after coming in second in Iowa. He then tweeted about how he was the most humble guy who ever lived in the whole history of the universe.
