CHASING RAINBOW

Kesha should easily top both our SPS and Album charts on Friday with her new set, Rainbow.

The collection—the first, to our knowledge, to feature both Dolly Parton and the Eagles of Death Metal as guests—sits at #1 on the iTunes album chart, while single "Praying" is Top 10 on the tracks side.

Here's how things look based on very early reads:

Kesha (Kemosabe/RCA) 110-115k 
Moneybagg Yo (N-Less/Interscope) 25k

Avicii (EP; Geffen) 10k

In other news, the HITS 31st Anniversary special issue is coming soon; the traditional gift associated with this benchmark is a timepiece. This is especially apt, given that we are frequently compared to a stopped clock.
