On the Charts: Taylor Swift Regains Top Spot After Chart Change

Not sure why, but Billboard didn’t include the overall music sales numbers in its chart story this week — so we’re left to assume albums remain down around 12 or 13 percent and tracks are still down 13 percent. We’ll see next week if this data returns. Taylor Swift’s Label Head Explains Spotify Removal UP WITH STREAMING! UP WITH TAYLOR! DOWN WITH TRACK EQUIVALENCY!: Billboard ‘s new chart formula kicks in this week, and, surprise, Number One is not some Spotify-fueled unknown but Taylor Swift, whose 1989  jumps from Number Two to Number One. She sold 281,000 albums by traditional standards, but her newfangled “sales” number, incorporating streaming data from Spotify, Beats Music, Google Play and others, as well as “track equivalent albums,” totals 339,000.

Andre 3000 addressed his concerns over this summer’s Outkast reunion in a conversation with experimental electronic artist Nicolas Jaar for The Fader , admitting that his custom jumpsuits — each emblazoned with a unique phrase — were a way of injecting something fresh into the parade of nostalgia. Why André 3000 Is Bowing Out of Hip-Hop “I felt weird about going out on stage and doing it again,” said the rapper, whose real name is Andre Benjamin. “I felt like people would be like, ‘Y’all are doing all these festivals, y’all are just doing it for money.’ And I felt like a sell-out, honestly. So I was like, if I’m in on the joke, I’ll feel cool about it.” The idea for the jumpsuits — all of which are now on display at Art Basel in Miami — came after Outkast’s comeback show at Coachella, which Benjamin curtly called “horrible.” In fact, Benjamin didn’t even want to do the tour
