Prince Royce is making a Fast and Furious crossover on the Billboard charts…
The Furious 7 soundtrack, featuring the 25-year-old Dominican American singer-songwriter’s single “My Angel,” jumps to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart dated April 25.
The rise to the summit comes four weeks after the soundtrack’s release.
This week, Furious 7 moved over 111,000 equivalent copies (combining traditional sales and those calculated out by collective streams of all the songs on the album). Last week, that figure was 74,000, so clearly the album is surging forward.
Furious 7 is the fourth soundtrack to top the chart in the past 12 months, according to Billboard, following Frozen, Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 and the Empire TV soundtrack.
The official music for Prince Royce’s “My Angel,” featuring scenes from the action film, has been viewed more than 8 million times on YouTube.
