Adele shows little signs of weakening as the super moved an additional 93,266 units of her hit album 25.

The surprise arrival was rapper Kevin Gates who pushed 90k copies of his album, ISLAH. All of Rihanna’s sales were digital and the physical sales hit today (February 5).

  • Dope

    Who the hell bought Kevin Gates’ albums?

    • I’m between: The label & nobody with a brain myself.


      Gates got some quality music if you actually listen to it.

    • Knickfan4life


    • Anthony Mason

      I did not buy Islah but I listen to him on the radio. It takes a miracle for me to buy music these days. His stuff is melodically sound though. I don’t turn the station when Gates comes on…

  • Live Well

    Ok, so now they wanna push this triflin niggas coon-hop. FOH


      He may not be the perfect role model, but he’s got Talent and he’s got flow.

      • Anthony Mason

        I can mess with Gates. Not Future….

  • P.I.T.-G

  • Nightmare

    His label bought those copies of trash.

    • Eli Pinilla

      Don’t know how, but homie’s got a fanbase. Know alot of people in Florida that listens to him

  • Kevin Gates any good music wise? I only know him for giving unruly chicks Palm sandwiches when they annnoy him.

    Might take a listen to his stuff when I hop onto my laptop.


      He has some Deep songs, and he raps better than 80% of the Rappers out right now.

    Don’t care for him but I’m happy a brother outsold a white devil, especially with all the black artist slowly getting black balled on the radio stations these days.

    • Soulrebel1

      What black artist getting black balled? All you hear is hip-hop on most radio stations from fetty wap, drake, young thug, Taylor swift, Justin bieber

      • Knickfan4life

        He means real artist they are playing Adele on black radio over fantasia and Jennifer Hudson and we people tell them about they say they complain to much.

      • Soulrebel1

        Why shouldn’t they right now Adele leading single was fire as a dude I haven’t heard sh!t from female r&b out now was as dope as that, she deserve that….

      • Knickfan4life

        I call Adele music suicide music her music is garbage she just happens to be around at a time when music is sh..ttty.

    • Lmao Sia is actually very talented


    Salute to Kevin Gates

  • MrTroyMercy

    I fuks with Kevin Gates music he just does and say some dickhead chit.

  • #Mr.Toadman AKA Toastman

    Good for gates. That eat the booday dude grinds hard

  • Ashlee Beans


  • Adele still selling 93k copies in week 2151 thats just crazy

    • Anthony Mason

      If Amy Winehouse was not an addict who died we may have never heard of Adele….

      Adele is good though. I wish she would cross over more though….

      • I think we would have. It’s a different genre.

        I do agree but think she is purposely not crossing over.

      • Anthony Mason

        I want to hear her with a good rapper. Maybe Eminem or Nas….

      • Yeah a superstar song. Jayz, maybe even the BoB from 5 years back.

  • Golgo 13

    surprised Kevin is number 3

  • Dat nicca Emm

    Gates is very talented and mind you the nigga acts krazy on purpose. He has a master in Psychology so he knows what he is doing. i listened to his music for the 1st time with alot of hate but God damn he deserves those numbers and even more. To me he is like the Rnb version of Young buck + some auto tunes added to it. my honest opinion.

  • Anthony Mason

    Gates is so listenable. His stuff puts me in a good mood and he knows how to pick beats…. He might be one of the smartest street rappers even near the top right now….

    His interviews are good too. He does antics for attention but he is more responsible in real life than most these rappers….
