The music industry is one of the most competitive industries in the world. While most people are unable to gain the following and fandom necessary to make it big, there are a select few artists that always seem to be at the top of the charts. While it can be a very challenging career to pursue, Rick Ross is one musician that always seems to find himself at the top of the charts.
Per a recent news article (http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/chart-beat/7743583/rick-ross-top-rb-hip-hop-albums-chart), Rick Ross has a new album out that is already listed among the leaders in the Billboard 100. Rick Ross had a very highly anticipated album called Rather You Than Me, which has jumped out of the gates to make a lot of money in sales. Based on the chart results dated at the end of March, he is currently number two on the Top 100 list.
The results of his new album have been very positive overall. The album in the last week sold the equivalent of 106,000 album units, which is one of the highest results of the year so far. Rick Ross is by no means new to the Top 100 list. This is the 12th time that he has been on the top 100 list since he first debuted in 2006. It is also the 10th time that he has appeared in the top 10.
While Ross had a very good rating and ranking for his album, some of the individual singles on the album have done well as well. The newest single on the album is Trap Trap Trap, which has been available for more than a week ahead of the rest of the album. This record has individual cracked the Top 100 list and has seen over 7.3 million different streams domestically in the past week, which is a 230 percent increase compared to the prior week. The popularity has also been helped by the release of the music video, which is quickly becoming one of the most watched videos on YouTube today.
