Lil Nas X’s debut EP 7 debuts at number one on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, with 7,700 total consumption units and scoring the highest audio-on-demand streams and digital song downloads for the week. The release, which contains the current No. 1 Streaming and Digital song, Old Town Road, is the first No. 1 album by a first-time charted artist since Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy entered at the top in April 2018.


The Raconteurs’ Help Us Stranger debuts at 2, racking up the top album sales total in the week. This is the Motor City rock band’s highest charting album to date, surpassing the No. 4 peak of their last album, 2008’s Consolers of The Lonely.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
