NEW RELEASES: 
JAY IS SMOKIN' (UPDATE)

Since the first week after a Tidal exclusive will count as its debut, here's how it's looking for Jay-Z's new 4:44 as it goes wide, and a couple of other new releases.

Jay-Z (Roc Nation/Def Jam) 215-240k SPS, 165-180k album
21 Savage (Slaughter Gang/Epic) 60-70k, 16-19k
HAIM (Columbia) 30-35k, 25-28k

4:44 has been parked at #1 on the iTunes album chart since it became available early Friday, followed by 21 Savage and HAIM. Jay also has the top album and seven of the Top 10 tracks at Apple Music, and both the #1 CD and the #1 download on Amazon. As we previously noted, the set isn't currently available on Spotify.

In political news, despite varying accounts of President Trump's meeting with Vladimir Putin, it has been established that he did write Putin's name several dozen times on his Pee-Chee folder.
