According to the media giant itself, data providers have failed to deliver data to Nielsen Music. The company, which is responsible for data regarding sales, streaming, and airplay information for Billboard, is expected to push back the release date until clarity is ensured. These issues arrive in the wake of the heated race between Lana Del Rey, Meek Mill, & Tyler the Creator to the chart’s No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
Billboard has stated that the “the chart results will be announced and posted as soon as possible”, leaving music followers to speculate in anticipation who will reign supreme.
