The Weeknd & 2 Chainz Debut In Top 3 On ‘Billboard 200′

The Weeknd and 2 Chainz have both debuted in the top three on the ‘Billboard 200′ with their respective sophomore albums this week. According to Billboard, Abel Tesfaye’s ‘Kiss Land’ entered at No. 2 with 96,000 first-week copies sold, leaving him just 2,000 off the pace of chart-topper Keith Urban’s ‘Fuse.

Earlier conflicting reports suggested that ‘Kiss Land’ beat out ‘Fuse’ for No. 1, which left The Weeknd with a bit of a red face. The singer prematurely celebrated the victory on Twitter, before having to later eat his words. Even former OVOXO labelmate Drake congratulated him on stage at a show last night.

Meanwhile, 2 Chainz‘s ‘B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time’ stumbled over the line in third place with sales of 63,000. These numbers fall way short of ‘Based on a T.R.U. Story,’ which moved 147,000 copies to top the chart last summer. That isn’t too surprising, though, considering the lack of a big radio single like ‘No Lie’ on the sequel.
