Rick Ross is the Bawse at iTunes and Apple Music as his first album for Epic—and ninth overall—Rather You Than Me starts flipover Friday at #4 on the streaming side and #2 on the sales chart.
No. 1 in sales is the latest release from Elevation Church in Charlotte, N.C., Elevation Worship’s There is a Cloud (Provident). With the Provident release, Sony Music has six albums in the Top 12 this morning.
Ross’s Rather You Than Me has a guest list that includes Future, Nas, Meek Mill and Chris Rock making it #2 at iTunes and the only new full album release in the Top 15 at Apple Music.
Depeche Mode’s first studio album in four years, Spirit (Venusnote/Columbia) graces #4 while Spoon’s “Hot Thoughts” (Matador) fills #6.
Blossom (Republic) from the German duo The Milky Chance pours in at #7 followed by the debut album from Zara Larsson, So Good (TEN/Epic) at #8.
A discount on classic albums has pushed Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” (Epic) into the Top 10, delaying the Top 10 arrival of SoMo’s The Answers (Republic) and Pitbull’s Climate Change (Mr. 305/Polo Grounds/RCA).
