The new global release day is Friday for most major albums, so that means Nielsen Music’s shift in tracking weeks have changed.
Billboard has reported the first official numbers for the new sales tracking week, and it’s a special case since there’s a still a transition period happening. From July 10 on, Nielsen Music will calculate sales from Friday through Thursday instead of Monday through Sunday. Billboard breaks it down as follows:
- Last week's Billboard 200 (dated July 18) was the final chart to use the Monday through Sunday tracking frame (week ending July 5).
- Next week's Billboard 200 (dated Aug. 1) will be the first to use Friday through Thursday tracking frame (week ending July 16 data).
- This week's Billboard 200 (dated July 25) acts as a transition chart between the two different tracking cycles, and reflects a one-time only 11-day sales tracking frame (ending July 9).
It’s good news for Meek Mill, who continues to maintain his No. 1 spot with Dreams Worth More Than Money. The LP moved 307,000 units in the 11-day frame ending July 9. That number is a sum of 246,000 units it earned last week when the official numbers were in. Between July 6 and July 9, the album moved 61,000 units.
Could this be Meek’s first album to go gold? It's looking that way so far. His first album, Dreams & Nightmares, is just shy of the certification with 414,000 copies, according to HitsDailyDouble.
