Jill Scott earns her second #1 album on Billboard with her fifth album Woman. This one, however, is significantly less impressive than her previous release and first #1, The Light Of The Sun, which sold 135K in its first week in 2011. Woman only manages 58K sales and 62K total units. Also worth noting is that Apple Music is now contributing streaming data to the Billboard 200 and Hot 100.

Jill Scott Scores Her Second No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart
By Keith Caulfield | August 03, 2015

Jill Scott celebrates her second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as her latest effort, Woman, debuts atop the list. The set starts at No. 1 on the chart dated Aug. 15 with 62,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending July 30, according to Nielsen Music.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The Aug. 15-dated chart will be posted in full to Billboard’s Web sites on Tuesday, Aug. 4.

Apple Music has been added as a streaming provider to the Billboard 200, as well as the Billboard Hot 100, other hybrid songs charts and streaming-only charts. The panel of streaming providers that contribute to the Billboard 200 now includes Amazon Prime, Apple Music, Beats Music, Google Play, Medianet, Rdio, Rhapsody, Slacker, Tidal, Spotify and Groove Music Pass (formerly Xbox Music).

Woman is Scott’s fifth studio album, and it sold 58,000 in pure album sales. It follows her chart-topping The Light of the Sun, released in 2011 (133,000 copies sold in its first week). Woman was released on Scott’s Blues Babe imprint, through Atlantic Records.

Scott is the first solo woman to have a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 in nearly five months. The last to do so was Kelly Clarkson, on the chart dated March 21, when her Piece By Piece album debuted at No. 1. Since then, the top of the chart has also seen female-led No. 1s from the groups Alabama Shakes (Sound & Color) and Florence + The Machine (How Big How Blue How Beautiful).

Further, Woman ends a dry spell for female R&B singers at the top of the chart. Scott is the first R&B songstress to lead the list in a year and seven months, since Beyonce’s self-titled album spent its third and final week at No. 1 (on the chart dated Jan. 11, 2014).

Scott’s second No. 1 comes almost exactly 15 years after she debuted on the Billboard 200 with her first album, Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1. It debuted on the Aug. 5, 2000-dated chart at No. 168, on its way to a No. 17 peak the following year (March 24, 2001).

Last week’s No. 1, Future’s DS2, slips to No. 2 in its second week with 52,000 units (down 65 percent).

Rock band Lamb of God tallies its fourth top 10 album, as VII: Sturm Und Drang debuts at No. 3 with 50,000 units (pure album sales equal 47,000). The group previously earned top 10s with 2012’s Resolution (No. 3 debut and peak), 2009’s Wrath and 2006’s Sacrament (No. 8).

Taylor Swift’s 1989 hangs out in the top 10 for a 40th straight week (its entire chart run), as the set descends 2-4 with 47,000 units (down 8 percent).

The soundtrack to the boxing drama Southpaw punches in at No. 5 on the new Billboard 200 chart with 45,000 equivalent units (of that, 32,000 were pure album sales). The rap-fueled collection features the likes of Eminem, The Weeknd, The Notorious B.I.G. and the film’s co-star 50 Cent. Southpaw is the seventh soundtrack to reach the top 10 in 2015, following Into the Woods, Fifty Shades of Grey, Empire, Furious 7, Pitch Perfect 2, Teen Beach 2 and Magic Mike XXL. (Comparably, only five soundtracks visited the top 10 in 2014. Among those five is the Frozen soundtrack, which actually spent its first week within the region in 2013.)

Ed Sheeran’s x rises 8-6 with 34,000 units (up 5 percent) in its 58th week on the tally.

Sixteen-year-old singer Bea Miller arrives at No. 7 with her full-length debut album, Not An Apology (33,000 units, of which 24,000 are pure album sales). Not An Apology is Miller’s second trip to the Billboard 200, following her Young Blood EP that peaked at No. 64 a little over a year ago (May 10, 2014-dated chart).

The new album’s single “Fire N Gold” is bubbling under the threshold of the Pop Songs airplay chart, and could debut on the tally in the coming weeks.

Miller was previously a contestant on The X Factor in 2012. The following year, she became the first signing in a collaborative deal between SYCO and Hollywood Records.

Rounding out the top 10 is Meek Mill’s former No. 1, Dreams Worth More Than Money (7-8 with 31,000 units; down 21 percent), Sam Hunt’s Montevallo (holding at No. 9 with 27,000 units; down 7 percent) and Tyrese’s Black Rose (3-10 with 26,000 units; down 49 percent).

Not a very interesting week but something I noticed on the chart this week is the sheer number of (recent) very long runners:

53 82 183 Lana Del Rey, Born To Die
83 103 237 Bruno Mars, Doo-Wops & Hooligans
113 106 155 Ed Sheeran, +
121 118 232 Adele, 21
124 131 238 Taylor Swift, Fearless
167 RE 198 Eminem, Recovery
180 171 222 Katy Perry, Teenage Dream

There are other long running albums on the chart like Bob Marley's greatest hits but these are the most 'contemporary' ones. It's quite impressive to have four albums released since 2008 who've spent over four years on the chart, to me at least? Eminem's Recovery should hit 200 weeks in the near-ish future and Born To Die should do the same, especially as Lana's next campaign will keep it afloat.

I wouldn't call any of the above album 'classics' with the possible exception of 21 but it's impressive to see albums with such longevity - I'm especially surprised by the Bruno and Lana albums having such staying power.
