Billboard Top 200 / Country Album Chart News (Chart issue week of June 18, 2016)

The Billboard 200 chart measures multi-metric album consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

Drake with VIEWS continued to dominate the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart, as it spent a fifth consecutive week at No.1 atop the list. As noted a week ago, Views has the most weeks at No.1 for an album by a man since Michael Buble’s Christmas also led the chart for five weeks in December 2011-January 2012.
Views earned another 152,000 equivalent album units (down 19%) in the week ending June 2, according to Nielsen Music. More than half of that sum, 92,000 units, were comprised of streaming equivalent albums.
Views’ 92,000 SEA units equates to nearly 138 million streams for the album’s tracks (as each SEA unit represents 1,500 streams from an album).
With Views’ latest streaming haul, the set now has the top five largest streaming weeks for an album: its debut frame holds the record (245.1 million streams for its tracks), followed by its third week (186.1 million), its fourth week (166.2 million), its second week (140.8 million), and then its fifth frame (137.5 million).
In the latest tracking week, Views sold 36,855 in traditional album sales, which placed it at No.5 on the Top Album Sales chart. The list ranks the best selling albums of the week.
Back on the Billboard 200, Dierks Bentley scored his highest charting album ever with the No.2 debut of BLACK (101,000 units; 88,000 in traditional album sales). The album also logged his best sales week yet, and marks his eighth top 10 effort. It also made a debut at No.1 on the Top Album Sales chart.
The No.2 arrival on the Billboard 200 exceeded Bentley’s previous high of No.3 with 2009’s FEEL THAT FIRE. And, in terms of sales, Black’s bow trumped Bentley’s former biggest week: 82,000 when LONG TRIP ALONE (released Oct 17, 2006) debuted at No. 5 in 2006 selling 82,448 copies in its first week.
Bentley has charted 10 albums on the Billboard 200, stretching back to his self-titled debut effort in 2003, which peaked at No.26.
Black was led by the single “Somewhere on a Beach,” which spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart, beginning April 30. It marked Bentley’s first No. 1 on the chart since 2012’s “5-1-5-0.”

Blake Shelton with IF I’M HONEST slipped 3-5 on the new Billboard 200 with 63,000 units (down 63%)

Billboard Top Country Albums (Chart issue week of June 18, 2016)

Dierks Bentley turned in the biggest sales week of his career, as his eighth studio album, BLACK (Capitol Nashville/Universal Music Group [UMG] Nashville), bounded in atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart (dated June 18), selling 87,732 copies in its launch sales week (ending June 2), according to Nielsen Music. On the all-genre, consumption-based Billboard 200, Black arrived at No.2 with 101,000 equivalent albums (below Drake’s Views, at No. 1 with 152,000).
Black’s opening sales week surpassed Bentley’s previous weekly best, set by 2006’s LONG TRIP ALONE, which debuted at No.1 on Top Country Albums with 82,000.
Dierks Bentley’s last album RISER (Capitol Nashville/Universal Music Group Nashville) released Feb 25, 2014 bow at No.6 on the BB200 and netted his fifth No.1 on Billboard Top Country Albums arrived with 63,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan (49% of that sum came via digital sales).

In its second week at retail RISER fell 6-18 on the BB200 (1-4 Country) with sales of 18,000 around 71% down on his debut week.
His 2009 set FEEL THAT FIRE (released Feb 3, 2009) opened at the top with 71,231 copies sold. Since then, he’s released the bluegrass effort UP ON THE RIDGE (Released June 8, 2010; No. 2 debut and peak in 2010, with 39,200 sales)
HOME (released Feb 7, 2012) arrived at No.7 BB200 / No.1 Country debut, 54,708 sales on chart week Feb 25, 2012. It was fueled by second single “I Hold On” and marked Bentley’s 17th top 10 on the chart. Lead single “Bourbon in Kentucky” peaked at No. 40 in July 2012.
MODERN DAY DRIFTER released May 10, 2005 peaked at #1 Country and #6 Billboard 200. As of Nov 4, 2006 it had racked up total sales of 1,281,964

This is the album [Black] that I’ve been chasing my whole career,” Bentley told Billboard. “The entire process, from the first lyrics to the album launch, was magic. But it also took focus and attention to the smallest of details. My team gave it everything they had, and I couldn’t be more proud of them.”
About the LP’s opening week, Bentley added, “Debuting at No.1 is always great. The most records I’ve ever sold in a week … crazy. I’m very grateful to all the fans.”
Produced by Ross Copperman, the 13-track Black is Bentley’s sixth Top Country Albums leader, all of which have arrived at the summit.
“I remember meeting Dierks to hear Black for the first time,” said UMG Nashville president Cindy Mabe. “I had some concerns, and I know he felt some pressure to follow up his [2014] Riser album, which had really been a career album. Following up a career album is never easy. From the moment he played the title song, I was hooked. He went into the storyline of how one song led into another, and you could follow it from front to back. It’s pretty rare to see an artist, 13 years into his career, continue to take on new perspectives and push the limits creatively.”

Following the announcement of his eighth studio album BLACK Dierks exposed plans for a short film series based on several of the album’s songs and premiered through Rolling Stone. Set to the track of “I’ll Be The Moon” (featuring Maren Morris), Bentley teamed with longtime director Wes Edwards to bare the first listen of new music in Episode 1.
The modern day film noir establishes a love triangle guided by the destructive power of steamy secrets. From April 1st iTunes mirrored the series by offering instant downloads of each episode’s featured track from BLACK.
“‘I’ll Be The Moon’ is a pivotal part of the flow of this record and is where the storyline of the couple in this series begins,” said Bentley. “We first recorded it just me, but the song looks at a relationship from a different angle, where the girl is instigating the deceit. So, I felt like it needed a female voice, and I started to hear it more as a duet. I love the perspective Maren adds, there’s weight to her voice.”
BLACK is personal - after all, it’s named after his wife Cassidy s maiden name, but it's really a record about the human heart not any particular human. It explores breakups, hook-ups, mess-ups and everything in between, shining a light on the things that happen after the sun goes down. It’s a relationship album that covers the ups and downs of the journey and ends with some self-realization and evolvement, shared Bentley. The song 'Black' helps set all of that in motion at the top of the album by guiding you into the darkness and the shadows of the night.

Critical reception for Dierks Bentley’s Black:
13 Tracks/ Time: 48:10 Amazon UK - UK iTunes -

Rollingstone (Rating: 3.1/2 STARS) ...Bentley is convincing as a hedonistic jerk in search of pleasure, and as a hedonistic jerk who's man enough to eventually acknowledge the consequences of his actions; his self-exploration is especially discomfiting when he tries to put the seductive genie back in the bottle. The entire concept, while surprisingly ambitious, is solidly realized, especially at the halfway point, as the narrator begins to take responsibility for his selfishness through the inward-glancing "Why Do I Feel." Throughout the record's second half, fleeting lust in the dark gives way to enduring love in the light of
day (while nicely avoiding the cloying devices of, say, a neatly tied-up rom-com), and the whole sordid mess culminates in the beautiful album-closing "Can't Be Replaced." But what lifts Black past merely being a good concept album is an old-school musicality that never takes a backseat to modern-country conventionality......Two of the album's best songs wisely deploy female foils to hint that his narrator knows he's not the only one affected by his actions – the gorgeous darkened room fantasy "I'll Be the Moon," featuring the tender-voiced Maren Morris, and "Different for Girls," where the gutsy Elle King joins Bentley to somberly survey the cultural advantages men have starting over after the collapse of a relationship.

Allmusic (Rating: 3.1/2 STARS) On the album art of Black, his eighth album, Dierks Bentley appears in a seemingly foreign atmosphere for the country singer: the stylish, sexy streets of a city at night. This change in setting -- previously, Bentley has been seeing picking on a porch, grinning in an alley, staring into the sunset, and chilling with a dog -- doesn't necessarily suggest a leap into crossover country-pop, but there's little question that the sultry gloss of Black is a consolidation of 2014's Riser, a record slicker and straighter than its predecessors....On the album art of Black, his eighth album, Dierks Bentley appears in a seemingly foreign atmosphere for the country singer: the stylish, sexy streets of a city at night. This change in setting -- previously, Bentley has been seeing picking on a porch, grinning in an alley, staring into the sunset, and chilling with a dog -- doesn't necessarily suggest a leap into crossover country-pop, but there's little question that the sultry gloss of Black is a consolidation of 2014's Riser, a record slicker and straighter than its predecessors. 

Entertainment Focus (Rating 5/5) ...Over the course of the record he pushes the boundaries of Country music and his own comfort zone is put to the test. Somewhere on a Beach may not have seemed like much of a departure for the star but the other tracks have hinted at a bolder sound than we’ve heard from him previously....."I’ll Be The Moon" featuring Maren Morris is one of the darker songs on the record telling the tale of an affair. Dierks and Maren work well together and they harmonise beautifully on the sweeping chorus. When it comes to experimenting, no song is more different to Dierks’ usual sound than the bluesy Mardi Gras featuring Trombone Shorty. Mardi Gras is used as a metaphor here but interestingly the song captures the kind of carnival vibe you’d expect from the parade.
Elsewhere on the record Dierks creates an athem in the making with the soaring Freedom, marries sparse beats with hand claps on the stark "Why Do I Feel", and throws back to a more traditional country rock beat with "Roses and a Time Machine". ...Black is a definite progressions from Riser. In many ways it’s very different from anything else that Dierks has done before and it’s rewarding to listen to him exploring different sounds and ideas. As always Dierks’ husky tone remains the focus of his songs but there’s a lot of depth here that you’ll pick up with repeated listens.

For The Country Record (Rating: Positive) ‘Black’ is a good album. Is it ‘Riser’? Hell no it isn’t. ‘Riser’ was incredibly personal, had its grounding firmly in country and was beautifully balanced between obvious singles and great album tracks. ‘Black’ is more sonically cohesive, with beautiful moody sounds weaving in-and-out of the songs, to the point that for me there aren’t any real stand-out tracks that scream to be played in isolation....‘Black’ is good, and I think it will get positive responses from most sources, although I think it will also get very different reviews, because people are looking for different things from Dierks. He can’t please everyone and make a coherent album, and I for one am glad that he’s chosen his path and stuck to it, because it completely works for what ‘Black’ is.

In his second week Blake Shelton with IF I’M HONEST (Warner Bros./Warner Music Nashville) fell 1-2 Country (3-5 Billboard 200) selling 51,492 copies (down 66% on first week sales 153,030)

Cole Swindell with YOU SHOULD BE HERE (Warner Bros./Warner Music Nashville [WMN]) fell 12-28 BB200 held at #5 Country (28-31 Billboard 200) selling 9,610 copies (4-week total 109,410)

In their third chart week Jennifer Nettles with PLAYING WITH FIRE (Big Machine/BMLG), fell 30-62 on the Billboard 200 & 4-7 country with 7,110 sales (3-week total 50,100).

Zach Seabaugh with his self-titled EP (Open Roads Highway Ent) made a debut at No.25 on Top Country Albums
5 Tracks/ Time: 16:15 Amazon UK - UK iTunes - 
Season 9 Voice standout Zach Seabaugh tweeted about releasing a single called “Nothing Good” and Zach then released a five-song, self-titled EP.
It was #4 on the US iTunes country albums chart and #24 on the site’s overall albums chart.
The only singers ahead of him on the country albums chart: Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton and Chris Stapleton, in that order.
The EP also features a fun tune called “Home to Mama” that just might remind you of something Elvis might have performed back in the. I’ve embedded live versions of those tunes below.
Zach serves up two ballads “Sweet Wine and Power Lines” and “Saturdays.”
The gift of a guitar at age five from a neighbor at a local garage sale and lessons from Rock guitarist Barry Edleston had Zach hooked on the six string and he has never looked back.
Zach, who hails from Marietta, Ga., was just 16 when he auditioned for The Voice with Sam Hunt’s “Take Your Time” and turned three chairs. He joined Team Blake Shelton and advanced all the way to the Top 6 before being eliminated.

Outside Of Top 25 Country Albums

Corey Kent White with 4 track LONG WAY (EP; UK iTunes) made a debut at #42 Country
In 2015 alone, his first EP sold over 80,000 downloads, he earned a coveted spot as a Top 8 finalist on NBC’s The Voice, and he successfully finished his degree at OSU. 
And with the anticipated May 2016 release of his “Long Way” EP, Corey’s train is showing no signs of slowing down. Co-produced by Brad Hill, a talent renowned for his work with artists like Maren Morris & Brother Osborne, “Long Way” was said to bring “an infectious mix of upbeat, windows-down music and insightful, passionate tracks. The new EP throws country, rock, blues, and folk into a blender to create Corey’s one-of-a-kind, soulful sound”.
This new collection of songs was described as “a call to adventure, and you can feel it in every lyric. It’s a peek behind the curtain at what makes a person tick—the raw emotion and restless passion that drives us to take risks, fall in love, follow our hearts”.

Tony Joe White with 9 track set RAIN CROW (Yep Roc; Amazon UK - UK iTunes - ) made a debut at No.46
Recorded at his own studio and produced by his son, Jody White, Rain Crow summons recollections of long ago, when animals foretold the weather, tongue-talking worshipers proved their faith by handling snakes and a "bad wind" could drive a man to edge of insanity. The nine-song set features new compositions White wrote over the past three years, included co-writes with his
wife, Leann, and Billy Bob Thornton on "The Middle of Nowhere." Known for popularizing swamp music, White has written gems like "Polk Salad Annie" and "Rainy Night in Georgia," and has had his songs performed by Elvis, Ray Charles, and Tina Turner.

I can’t believe we’re sitting here talking about my fourth No. 1 in a row,” Rhett told Billboard. “This one feels especially great, because I had this song in my back pocket for a couple of years and I convinced the songwriters to let me hang onto it.”
“T-Shirt” followed Rhett’s previous Country Airplay leaders “Die a Happy Man” (six weeks at No.1), “Crash and Burn” and “Make Me Wanna” (one each).
‘T-Shirt’ has performed really strong for us, with little burn,” noted WBWL Boston PD Lance Houston. On Hot Country Songs, “T-Shirt” rose 4-3, hitting a new high.

Country Aircheck MEDIABASE Chart

6 June 2016

Congrats to Thomas Rhett, George Briner and the Valory promotion staff on scoring the week’s No.1 with “T-Shirt.” The song is Rhett’s sixth consecutive chart-topper and third from his current album TANGLED UP.
It is the follow-up to his #1 hit "Crash And Burn" (Sept 14, 2015) and his 2X PLATINUM six-week #1 single "Die A Happy Man" (Jan 18). Thomas Rhett was slated to perform “T-Shirt” during the 2016 CMT Music Awards (June 8) where he was a three-time nominee.
The song logged 8,932 radio spins (+718) and 60.742 million audience impressions (+4.34) with 28192 Total Points from 158  tracking stations for the tracking week May 29 to June 4, 2016 and published chart June 6th 2016.

To celebrate, Thomas Rhett has immediately delivered the summer anthem “Vacation” to Country radio as his new single.
I never would have imagined when I started on this journey that I’d have six #1’s in a row,” Thomas Rhett said. “Vacation” is fast becoming one of my favorite songs to play live. It’s all about letting loose and having fun, wherever you are, and that’s what we want people to do at our shows. We want our shows to be a mini vacation for everyone, from the front to the back. And hopefully, if you are stuck in traffic or on your way to work, this song will take you to that place for a few minutes.”

Kudos to Bobby Young and the Capitol crew for securing 54 adds for Dierks Bentley’s Different For Girls”. The song topped the week’s "Most Added" board.
The Capitol staff may or may not be in this picture -- Oh wait! Is that Brent Jones off in the distance?
