Buzz 12:40PM EDT

Straight Outta Compton may have gotten snubbed at the Oscars, but the MTV Movie Awards are looking to make that up. On Tuesday (March 8), MTV announced the nominees for its annual best-of film award show, and the N.W.A. biopic fared well, earning three nods, including Movie of the Year.READ MORE

Buzz 09:30AM EDT

The first sales week for Florence + The Machine's How Big How Blue How Beautiful was certainly the first (and possibly third) adjective featured in the album's title, as the third record from the songstress sold 128,000 copies and took the top spot on the Album Charts, holding off also-rans Taylor Swift and A$AP Rocky. It was the highest sales week of Welch's career.READ MORE

Although only pure album sales were tracked at the time of the band's last release, Ceremonials, Billboard suggests that this was also the band's biggest sales weeks in terms of pure records as well.READ MORE

A$AP Rocky No. 1 on Billboard 200 Again; Boosie BadAzz, Hillsong United Follow

Buzz 11:58AM EDT

Another hip-hop performer takes the top spot on the Billboard 200 with a surprise album as A$AP Rocky and At.Long.Last.A$AP debuts with 146,000 equivalent units in its first week. That may seem like more than his last album, Long.Live.A$AP (which also debuted at no. 1), however that album opened with 139,000 actual copies sold, while the new Billboard metrics also take single downloads and streams into consideration. In that light, A.L.L.A. only sold 117,000 copies. Of course, week two could also be strong due to the surprise nature of the release.READ MORE

Twenty One Pilots had never sold more than 11,000 copies of an album in one week prior to the release of Blurryface last week, but that record didn't need streaming to top the Billboard 200. It also comes in at no. 1 on the albums chart, selling 134,000 copies (more than 91 percent of the album's Billboard 200 total came from actual album sales).READ MORE

'Pitch Perfect 2' might not have a "Cups" yet (technically Anna Kendrick does perform her song on the new soundtrack but it's not a Hot 100 smash anymore) but it still managed something that the previous film's song collection didn't: topping the albums charts. The record, boosted by medleys featuring dozens of hit songs, won the sales battle this week by moving 91,000 copies.READ MORE
