Unfortunately WALLS misses the Billboard Top10 and lands at #12. Those new Billboard rules are ridiculous! :evil:

I don't understand ...

Is this because of Streaming?

Barbra was #2 according to Hits sales estimates.
Metro booming who debut at #1 on billboard 200 was #28. Over 30k sales difference

She is #2 on Billboard Top Album Sales.
But Album Sales are just a part of the overall chart, Billboard 200, which also counts TEA (track equivalent albums) and SEA (streaming equivalent albums).

She's #12 on the main chart because her TEA and SEA are minimal.

On the other hand, Metro booming's sales are a lot lower than Barb's, but they're overall units with TEA and SEA are a lot higher.

Wow, so it did miss the top 10 - her first normal studio album in nearly 35 years to miss the US top 10 (she missed it also in 2001 but with a Christmas album).

I really can't understand who decided that pure sales(which are paid with money) actually have the same weight on the making of the Top200 with streaming which is practically free! :-?

Paid streams count more than free streams.
And sales count more than streams.

Sure, Billboard 200 needs some changes to make it more fair, a system like the ones in UK or Germany... But the sales only chart in 2018 is not representative at all. Sales below top 20 are dismal.

RS: Walls is the best Album of 2018....
Babs:ok ok, I might consider allowing you to review my record.
RS:..it's the 19th in the list!
Babs: I wont even allow you to post my news or write my name again!

Barbra Streisand, ‘Walls’
Barbra Streisand heard you talking about a version of A Star Is Born that she doesn’t star in and came back with a political powerhouse of an album to amend that. A mixture of both new originals and covers of classic standards, the LP follows a general theme of political upheaval. Songs like “Don’t Lie to Me” are written as a direct, open letter to President Trump while covers of John Lennon’s “Imagine” and Leonard Bernstein’s “Take Care of This House” (from the musical 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue) are transformed to fit her message of protest.
