Music Biz: (Congrats) Ed Sheeran Leads Billboard 200 Chart With Biggest Debut of 2017...

As expected, Ed Sheeran’s third studio album ÷ has dominated the Billboard 200 chart. The long-awaited project debuted at No. 1 this week, racking in a notable 451,000 equivalent album units, 322,000 of which were in traditional album sales. This marks the biggest week for an album in 2017, and the largest opening week since J. Cole dropped 4 Your Eyez Only in December of 2016. According to Billboard, ÷ is Sheeran’s second No. 1 project, following his 2014 sophomore album x with 209,000 in traditional album sales. The 26-year-old singer’s debut project + peaked at No. 5 in 2011. In an interview with Billboard earlier this year, Sheenan talked about his decision to release the album in March of this year rather than in November of last year.

Music Biz: Nick Cannon Sued For $1.7 Million For Allegedly Stealing Talent Search App

Nick Cannon is experiencing all sorts of trouble in the talent search industry. Shortly after announcing his departure from America's Got Talent, Nick Cannon has been hit with a $1.7 million lawsuit for allegedly stealing the idea for his N'credible app, a talent-searching app that he launched outside of the show. "I never thought he would steal from me, so that hurt," Enrico Taylor, the man who filed the lawsuit, told TMZ. Taylor met Cannon in early 2015 and told him all about his talent-scouting company, I Discover Stars, as well as his plans to build his own app. He wanted Cannon to become a brand ambassador and a potential investor for I Discover Stars, and the Wild 'N Out host pretended to be on board, claims Taylor. Cannon had been interested in a digital talent search that Taylor had assisted Birdman with in late 2013. Then Cannon apparently ceased all communication with Taylor. Months later, he would announce the N'credible app, which Taylor believes is pat..
