This Week in News: WATTBA tops the Charts, Fetty Wap endures Motorcycle Crash, and More / by Dennis Williams

‘What a Time to Be Alive’ Debuts at #1 Album in the Country

We’ve all looped the WATTBA album endless times since it’s release last Sunday and the duo might have reached their album sale quota off of my streams alone.

Well ‘What a Time to Be Alive’ did just that, selling 339,538 copies in the first week with another 39,000 Apple Music streams brings the WATTBA album sales in its debut week to 378,630 copies. The duo sold a little less than their half a million sale projection but it leaves both artists with two #1 albums this year.

Although despite Drake's recent success, he still continues to keep a hand in his beef with Meek. As the crowd from his DC performance last week began to chant, "F*ck Meek Mill," Drake responded, "He's already dead."


Fetty Wap Involved in Serious Motorcycle Accident

Just a day after his debut album release, Fetty Wap took to the streets and was involved in a relatively serious motorcycle accident.

Fetty Wap’s team made a statement yesterday saying that the rapper is in stable condition but they haven’t offered any further details. Fetty Wap is the only artist ever to grab four top 10 singles on the Billboard charts. If you haven’t already, take a listen through his self-titled album, ‘Fetty Wap’.
