Skylar Grey CMLXXXV :: ‘Suicide Squad: The Album’ Debuts at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart – Billboard, 14-AUG-2016

The sales figure have all come in and been officially counted by BillboardSuicide Squad: The Album (f/ Ms. Grey’s exclusive solo track “Wreak Havoc” x the Skylar Grey-penned and chart-topping “Gangsta” performed by Kehlani) has debuted at #1 on Billboard‘s Top 200 Albums chart!

The villain-ridden album can also boast the biggest debut sales week for a soundtrack album in 18 months, since the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack (which also featured a soundtrack-exclusive Skylar Grey song, “I Know You”) dropped in February of this past year (2015).

For more detailed stats on the soundtrack album’s debut week sales (via Billboard‘s Keith Caulfield), see below, and click the album’s artwork to grab a copy of the album yourself if you haven’t already.

Suicide Squad: The Album | Billboard Top 200 Albums Debut ::
“….the all-star Suicide Squad soundtrack roars in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, earning 182,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Aug. 11, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 128,000 were in traditional album sales — the best sales debut for a soundtrack in a year-and-a-half.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Aug. 27-dated chart (where Suicide Squad is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Aug. 16.

The Suicide Squad soundtrack was released on Aug. 5 (the same day as its parent film’s theatrical bow) through WaterTower Music/Atlantic Records. The album is the first No. 1 soundtrack in a year on the Billboard 200. A soundtrack last crowned the list on the Aug. 22, 2015-dated chart, when Disney Channel’s Descendants opened at No. 1. The last theatrical film soundtrack before Suicide Squad to top the list was Pitch Perfect 2, on the May 30, 2015 chart.

The Suicide Squad album — which features new recordings by Twenty One Pilots, Skrillex & Rick Ross, Panic! at the Disco and more — is also the top-selling album of the week, and bows at No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart. Its start of 128,000 copies sold is the best sales frame for any album in a month, since Blink-182’s California launched with 172,000 sold (on the July 23-dated list).

Further, Suicide Squad posts the biggest debut sales week for a soundtrack in 18 months, since the Fifty Shades of Grey album launched at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 210,000 sold (Feb. 28, 2015).

Of Suicide Squad’s total unit figure for the week — 182,000 — traditional album sales represent 70.5 percent. The rest of the sum is comprised of TEA (17.6 percent) and SEA (11.9 percent).

The album’s streaming equivalent album unit total for the week on the Billboard 200 was nearly 22,000 units, which equates to 32.6 million streams for the album’s tracks. That’s the largest streaming week for a soundtrack album, ever, on the chart. It handily beats the 10,000 SEA units (14.4 million streams) logged by the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack in its second chart week (March 7, 2015)….”

Skylar Grey CMLXXXII :: Interview w/ Bashar Zidane – Glamoholic Issue #35: The Next Big Thing | Photo

Issue #35 of Glamoholic (The Next Big Thing issue) has hit the shelves, and features a new interview with Ms. Grey by Bashar Zidane!

They talk about what emotions drove her songwriting for the the new album, mentors, fashion, and guilty pleasures – view a few excerpts below, and click the pro-shot to view the full feature+gallery and order your own physical copy of the issue (which ship worldwide) while they’re still available!

Skylar Grey – I’ve Grown Up A Lot | Glamoholic ::
“….What type of emotions did you experience while writing the new songs??
Well in the past few years, I feel like I’ve grown up a lot. I finally accepted myself and found the true keys to my happiness. So, a lot of the songs come from that place of really just owning who I am and getting the most out of life. But there are some really sad songs about heartbreak on this album, too. No emotion is invalid… I’m not saying one should never feel negativity, but in recent years I’ve learned how to get over things quicker than usual, or at least find peace and enjoy other parts of life outside of the heartbreak or sadness.

Do you ever feel like you’re not ready to revisit some story / topic and write about it?
I suppose sometimes there are certain things about my more recent past that still cause such deep negative emotions that I avoid thinking about them. The further something is in the past, the easier it is to write about, and from a positive perspective. No need to torture myself to write a song. Making music is supposed to be fun.

How do you usually balance between the emotionally-charged songs and the catchy melodic ones??
Even the catchy melodic stuff is emotionally charged for me, even though it may not seem like it to a listener.  Everything comes from a real place. Emotion can be happy or sad, weak or empowered, fearful or excited…

Who would you say influenced you the most throughout your whole life?
I’ve had a lot of mentors along the way… My mom was first of course. Being a musician herself, and always being supportive of me following my dreams was huge to the start of my career.

How far does fashion help you express your mood and reflect your personality?
Fashion is big for me. I get shit though for being too Tom Boy.  It’s gotta be the right balance and sometimes I nail it, sometimes I don’t.  Being an outdoorsy girl, it’s always been inside me to be kinda Tom Boy, but I started dressing with androgynous feel to my fashion because I wanted to appear tougher and taken seriously. I think everyone should be treated equally regardless of gender or race, but unfortunately the world isn’t there yet.  As a young female in a predominantly male industry, I definitely got pushed around a lot in the beginning. In addition, there is the part of my personality that is unafraid to explore the darkness and the unknowns, which is represented by the almost gothic edge I have at times….”
