… Sorry, Tekashi

We have a winner in Travis Scott and Tekashi69’s battle for the top of the album charts — and Billboard says it’s Travis … but admits it was ridiculously close.
A spokesperson for Billboard tells TMZ … “In a historically close race, after a rigorous review of the process and the methodology by which the No. 1 ranking on last week’s Billboard 200 album chart was awarded to Travis Scott’s ‘Astroworld,’ we concluded that no correction was warranted.”
You’ll recall … Travis’ album was named #1 for the last week in November, but then Nielsen — which compiles the sales data for Billboard — said there was some discrepancy that it believed opened the door for Tekashi’s “Dummy Boy” to take the top spot.
In essence … they demanded a recount.
Now, Billboard says there was no need for the recount, and is going with the original data.
Bottom line … Tekashi loses again. As if his federal indictment and jailing wasn’t bad enough.
