Tekashi 6ix9ine May Have Been Cheated Out of Billboard #1 Spot

Last week Tekashi 6ix9ine’s “Dummy Boy” debuted at number 2 on the Billboard chart but it has now been revealed that there may have been an error. Album sales are tallied by an organization called Nielsen Music and they are claiming their may have been a “processing discrepancy.”

Billboard released this statement, “The results of the Billboard 200 chart dated Dec. 8, which was announced on Sunday (Dec. 2), are being audited by Nielsen Music due to a processing discrepancy. Upon completion of the in-depth audit of data sources across streaming and retail, Billboard will announce any resulting changes that may affect chart rankings.”

Billboard had previously announced that Travis Scott’s “Astroworld”had reentered the chart at Number 1 with 71,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Nov. 29 (up 60 percent) and Tekashi’s “Dummy Boy” sold  66,000 equivalent album units (in just the 3 days it was out).
