As previously stated, Adele's 25 is back to the top of the Billboard charts, contrasting the seemingly obvious topper -- Kanye West's The Life of Pablo is nowhere to be found. Why, you may ask? His TIDAL exclusive album caused his absence from the top 200.
"Billboard has been informed that Tidal is not currently reporting streams for tracks on Kanye’s album to Nielsen Music," said Silvio Pietroluongo, vice president of Billboard's charts and data development, in a statement. "Therefore streams from Tidal for this title will not contribute to Billboard’s chart rankings at this time."
