    Travis Scott has the number one album on the Billboard charts this week. A Day to Remember come in at number two, which is the highest position of their career, and actually sold the most albums during the week.


    Rock band A Day to Remember bows at a career-high peak of No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with Bad Vibrations, as the set starts with 67,000 units (62,000 in pure album sales). It’s also the best-selling album of the week, and debuts at No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart.

    Dang! So close. Beat out by streams, just like All Time Low. Our scene keeps getting cock-blocked. Still, congrats to ADTR!!!

    So insane! Congrats to ADTR on this! They are also #1 in total sales, does that mean physical copies? I'm not sure how it works.

    Doing the full run as opener for Blink 182 was a pretty good decision

    Went to get physical copies twice and they were sold out both times. Shitty.

    I don't even like ADTR and I'm upset on their behalf. I really don't like the streams = album sales rule.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure total sales means just pure album sales, and it doesn't include streams.

    It means actual sales, physical or digital, as opposed to "streaming equivalent" units. Travis Scott beat ADTR because, even though ADTR sold 9,000 units, Scott had 50 million streams

    That's the same thing that happened to All Time Low, right? It was that movie soundtrack that got all those streaming plays? Hm, well nonetheless it's really great that ADTR got #2. That's pretty sick.

    Too bad we couldn't hide Travis's streams with ADTR's.

    The rivalry is back on

    I always underestimate how big bands in this scene are -- I was very surprised to see this do as well as it did

    You shouldn't be. Common Courtesy would have done just as well if they would have been able to physically release it at first.
