First, on the album side: A Christian rapper named Lecrae had the No. 1 album on the Billboard “200” charts last week — with 88,000 albums sold. If you’re thinking that 88,000 albums is an awfully low number of records for the No. 1 spot: Yes, you are correct. Meanwhile, Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” is still No. 1 on the “Hot 100” chart (with Taylor Swift still right behind), confirming that right now is a very weird time for music. See: U2.
