NEW RELEASES:
NATURAL BLONDE
Frank Ocean's Apple Music-exclusive Blonde album will be the week's biggest release: Monday morning it's the #1 album on the streaming service and its tracks occupy slots 1 through 17 on the Top Songs chart, with "Nikes" at the top. His prior album, Channel Orange, is the #11 streaming album. (He's on top at iTunes as well, where Channel Orange sits in the Top 10.) Stay tuned for forecasts. In the meantime, let's look at the week's two other substantial new sets. 
 
Tory Lanez (Mad Love/Interscope) 35-40k SPS, 25-30k album
Dolly Parton (Dolly/RCA Nashville) 20-25k, 20-25k
 
Look for Dolly to appear on The Tonight Show on 8/23 and Today on 8/24. In Olympics news, Ryan Lochte has explained that he hadn't meant to trash that gas station, but the space was just too small to swim in.
