I mean, a huge album will most likely stay on top for 7, 8, 9 weeks and won't decline as fast.
I remember chart trajectories in the pure albums sales as 1-7-20-33-26-14-10-8 (an example) but I don't see how such trajectory will show up with Streaming, they'll be more like 1-1-2-2-3-2-3-2-1-2. The chart will be kinda boring to watch. What do you guys think ? ^^
Depends on the artist.
Drake and Kendrick Lamar will fit perfectly with your projected trajectory. An act like Bon Jovi or U2 will be more like 1-21-89-195.
The album charts are way too slow. You cant blame the streaming though. Nobody is selling and the gap between 1 and 10 is a mere 50,000 units. Imagine the gap between 10 and 40. Now we're talking what? 5,000 units?
