'Magna Carta Holy Grail' #1 Album at iTunes This Week, Robin Thicke #1 Single

iTunes' Official Music Charts for the week ending July 8, 2013
  |   Comments

I heard an awful lot of talk about some unorthodox method of (pre)-release for Jay-Z's latest album Magna Carta Holy Grail. Whatever everyone was going on about it, it's the #1 album at iTunes this week. I'm not a fan or follower of hip hop but it seems Jay-Z and Kanye West have been in a "battle" of sorts for supremacy in the rap world. Both men have released recent albums and for the moment, Jay-Z seems to be winning as West's Yeezus has already slipped to #6.

The singles chart is once again the domain of Robin Thicke, Daft Punk, Macklemore and Lewis, and I cannot believe it but Miley Cyrus. I thought we all had a meeting and decided we were done with her but apparently I missed the memo and her "We Can't Stop" is #2 on the singles chart this week as well as #2 at Spotify.

The charts don't have anything to offer me this week but if you're curious, here they are:
