A FITTINGLY DAMNED POST-EASTER TOP 20

Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. (TDE/Interscope) has surpassed 200m streams and is on its way to a possible 300m first-week number. While Drake’s record of 385m first-week streams of More Life (YMCMB/Republic) is safe, DAMN. had already sold more albums with three days to go in the chart week.
