(AllHipHop News) They always say "congratulations" to Post Malone. The 23-year-old entertainer likely picked up more attaboys over the last few days. Post's 2016 album Stoney spent its 77th week in the Top 10 of the Top R&B/Hip-Hop chart.
Stoney surpassed the previous all-time record held by Michael Jackson's Thriller. However, it should be noted that the 1982 masterpiece was released in the pre-streaming era, so MJ's magnum opus did not have track equivalent album units or streaming equivalent album units calculated into its weekly placement on the chart. Its tracking was based solely on pure sales.
The classic LP by the King of Pop still sits atop the list of albums with the most weeks at #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart with 37 weeks. Besides Post Malone and Michael Jackson, the archive of the all-time Top 10ers includes LPs by Whitney Houston, The Black Eyed Peas, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Eminem, Lionel Richie, and Janet Jackson.
