6ix9ine’s debut album performed better than ASTROWORLD.

As well as one may have thought 6ix9ine’s debut album would do, DUMMY BOY definitely exceeded the expectations. If you were to tell me a week ago that DUMMY BOY would beat out Travis Scott’s album I would have told you, “HA yeah right.”

But that’s exactly what happened.

According to Complex, ASTROWORLD was initially the number one album on the Billboard Charts, for the third consecutive week I may add, but then, Hits Daily Double revealed an email sent directly from Nielsen’s Drew Bennett revealing a ‘discrepancy’ and that 6ix9ine’s DUMMY BOY was the true number one album.

“Our team has done a deep dive and found the cause of the initial discrepancy. We’ve since then reprocessed the jobs necessary and re-finalized the charts. As a result, 6ix9ine’s ‘Dummy Boy’ will be moving to #1… Our team is working quickly to identify the root cause of this discrepancy to ensure that we get it right the first time.”

DUMMY BOY beat out ASTROWORLD by only 200 units, in the music world, that the equivalent to winning by less than an inch in a drag race.

I guess now we will see what happens, maybe they’ll be another ‘discrepancy’ found and we will have to do this all over again, who knows?
