    Young Thug has the number one album in the country this week:

    The set earned 131,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Aug. 22, according to Nielsen Music. Of that unit sum, just 5,000 were in album sales — the rest was driven almost entirely by streaming activity.

    These posts are interesting, seeing which artists are heavily streamed and which have a majority of their sales in traditional albums.

    Madonna and Slipknot, recently, landed on here with a super high percentage in traditional. Today, Young Thug takes the crown with nearly all in streams.

    That's so crazy only seeing 5K traditional sales.

    When was the last time you saw someone under 25 buy a physical album or a download?

    Def glad for Thugger too
  7. All the time at any record shop in America, vinyl is quite popular.

    ugh, every song this guy is featured on is completely ruined by him. i.e. 'Goodbyes' from Post.

    I like Post Malone but Young Thug is a 100x more interesting artist

    Pretty sure most of that is due to the average age of the their fans. That and the fact that rock fans buy more vinyl.

    I just absolutely hate how he uses auto tune. He also ruins The London as well.
