Chris Brown Album “Heartbreak on a Full Moon” Sold 68K Copies Debut At No. 3


Chris Brown new album Heartbreak on a Full Moon sold 68,000 copies in the first week of release and debut at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Brown’s first week sale numbers was made lower because he released the album on a Tuesday which means only three days worth of sales were accounted for last week. 25,000 copies were from traditional album sales. Breezy released the massive 45-track project last week on Halloween day and has been getting a lot of positive feedback from his fans about it.

Traditionally, artists released their new albums on a Friday to benefit from a full week of sales that would count towards their chart position. This marks the ninth top ten album for Chris Brown. Elsewhere on the chart, 21 Savage, Offset, and Metro Boomin drop their surprised joint album, Without Warning, a week ago and it sold 53,000 copies in the first week to debut at No. 4 behind Chris Brown. Post Malone’s Stoney album came in at No. 5 with 41,000 copies sold. Yo Gotti’s I Still Am sold 38,000 copies, Big K.R.I.T.’s 4Eva Is a Mighty Long Time sold 33,000 copies, Ed Sheeran sold 32,000, Future & Young Thug’s Super Slimey, and Lil Uzi Vert’s Luv Is Rage 2 moved 30,000, which rounded out the top 10.

If you take a closer look at the chart’s top ten albums, you will see that it’s dominated by hip hop.

Billboard 200 Album chart top ten:

1. Kenny Chesney – Live In No Shoes Nation – 219,000
2. Kelly Clarkson – Meaning of Life – 79,000
3. Chris Brown – Heartbreak on a Full Moon – 68,000
4. 21 Savage, Offset, & Metro Boom – Without Warning – 53,000

9. Future & Young Thug – Super Slimey – 31,000
10. Lil Uzi Vert – Luv Is Rage 2 – 30,000

Dancehall Need More Balance Says Agent Sasco


Dancehall music is currently back in mainstream, but Assassin, aka Agent Sasco, says the music need more balance.

Sasco has around two decades of experience in dancehall and has created a vast catalog for himself including some international hits with overseas artists. The 34-year-old deejay made a name for himself as one of the most prolific lyricists in dancehall and often drew attention for his socially conscious and thought provoking lyrics.

Sasco recently weighed in on the state of the music and how the young acts stacks up to the veterans in the business. “You have 17-year-olds now that have an idea of what dancehall should look and sound like,” he said. “I am not going to be one of the man dem who dictate how fi dem (young artistes) world should look because it is for dem to use how dem see it to come up with material. The issue is when there is no balance to it or when it is one-dimensional.”

Agent Sasco added that currently he is hearing too much of the same thing on the airwaves and want to see more balance among the new acts. He also want stakeholders to start look at the business aspects of dancehall and that’s a sentiment that has been echoed from musicians over the last few years. The full earning potential of dancehall acts are not being met, despite the huge popularity of the genre worldwide and over the last few years you have some big name international acts like Drake, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Ed Sheeran tapping into the genre to make massive hits.

Bibia Be Ye Ye – Ed Sheeran lyrics

Lyrics Ed Sheeran – Bibia be ye ye

Bibia be ye ye

I lost my shoes last night, I don’t know where I put my keys
I was tired and fell asleep beneath an oak tree
I bet my mother’s proud of me from each scar
Upon my knuckle and each graze upon my knee, and all I know
Is I got a cab and then threw up on his car seat
He kicked me out and then I walked in the rain
I tell myself in every way I won’t be doing this again
And tomorrow’s a brand new day.

Someone told me, “Always say what’s on your mind”
And I am only being honest with you, I
I get lonely and make mistakes from time to time
Se enioma enko ye, bibia be ye ye
Bibia be ye ye, ye ye, ye ye
Bibia be ye yeee.

I remember less and less and mostly things that I regret
In my phone are several texts, from girls I’ve never met
And in the pocket of my jeans are only coins and broken dreams
My heart is breaking at the seams and I’m coming apart now
Now things are looking up, I’ll find my shoes right next to the oak tree
And I’ll get a bus straight into town and spend the afternoon
Looking around for the things that I left on the ground
And say you’re with me, tomorrow’s a brand new day.

Someone told me, “Always say what’s on your mind”
And I am only being honest with you, I
I get lonely and make mistakes from time to time
Se enioma enko ye, bibia be ye ye
Wo nooma
Wo nooma maaaa ye
Wo nooma
Wo nooma maaaa ye
Wo nooma
Wo nooma maaaa ye
Wo nooma
Wo nooma maaaa ye.

Someone told me, “Always say what’s on your mind”
And I am only being honest with you, I
I get lonely and make mistakes from time to time

Hands of gold – Ed Sheeran lyrics – Game of thrones song

Lyrics Ed Sheeran – Hands of gold

He rode through the streets of the city
Down from his hill on high
Over the winds and the steps and the cobble
He rode to a woman’s side
Versuri-lyrics.info
For she was his secret treasure
She was his shame and his bliss
And a chain and a keep are nothing
Compared to a woman’s kiss.(hands of gold)

For hands of gold are always cold
But a woman’s hands are warm
For hands of gooold are always cold
But a woman’s hands are ..

Save Myself – Ed Sheeran lyrics

Lyrics Ed Sheeran – Save myself

I gave all my oxygen to people that could breathe
I gave away my money and now we don’t even speak
I drove miles and miles, but would you do the same for me?
Ohhh, honestly?
Offered off my shoulder just for you to cry upon
Gave you constant shelter and a bed to keep you warm
They gave me the heartache and in return I gave a song
It goes on and on.(save myself)

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
I drown it with a drink and out-of-date prescription pills
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
No farewell versuri-lyrics.info
So before I save someone else, I’ve got to save myself.

I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain
‘Cause human beings are destined to radiate or drain
What line do we stand upon, ’cause from here it looks the same
And only scars remain.

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
I drown it with a drink and out-of-date prescription pills
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
No farewell
So before I save someone else, I’ve got to save myself.

But if don’t
Then I’ll go back
To where I’m rescuing a stranger
Just because they needed saving just like that
Oh, I’m here again
Between the devil and the danger
But I guess it’s just my nature
My dad was wrong
‘Cause I’m not like my mum
‘Cause she’d just smile and I’m complaining in a song
But it helps
So before I save someone else
I’ve got to save myself.

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
I drown it with a drink and out-of-date prescription pills
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
No farewell
So before I save someone else, I’ve got to save myself
And before I blame someone else, I’ve got to save myself
And before I love someone else, I’ve got to love myselfff.

How would you feel – Ed Sheeran lyrics

Lyics Ed Sheeran – How would you feel

You are the one, girl
And you know that it’s true
I’m feeling younger
Every time that I’m alone with you.(how would you feel)

We were sitting in a parked car
Stealing kisses in a front yard
We got questions we should not ask, but.

How would you feel
If I told you I loved you
It’s just something that I want to do
I’ll be taking my time
Spending my life versuri-lyrics.info
Falling deeper in love with you
So tell me that you love me too.

In the summer
As the lilacs bloom
Blood flows deeper than a river
Every moment that I spend with you.

We were sat upon our best friend’s roof
I had both of my arms around you
Watching the sunrise replace the moon, but.

How would you feel
If I told you I loved you
It’s just something that I want to do
I’ll be taking my time
Spending my life
Falling deeper in love with you
So tell me that you love me too.

Yeahhh, we were sitting in a parked car
Stealing kisses in a front yard
We got questions we should not ask.

How would you feel
If I told you I loved you
It’s just something that I want to do
I’ll be taking my time
Spending my life
Falling deeper in love with you
Tell me that you love me too
Tell me that you love me too
Tell me that you love me tooo.
