THIS CHART STORY IS PRETTY IN P!NK

Beautiful TraumaP!nk’s seventh studio album—has debuted at #1 on the HITS Sales Plus Streaming (SPS) Chart with a glorious 407k for RCA. What’s more, sales represent approximately 384k of that figure.

That gives P!nk the biggest debut of 2017 by a female artist, and the third biggest since consumption was added to the charts; Adele (3.4m) and Beyoncé (653k) are the top two. Additionally, Beautiful Trauma is the year’s fourth biggest debut overall behind Kendrick Lamar, Drake and Ed Sheeran.

The contributing ticket bundle is in the neighborhood of 200k, making it by far the biggest of the year.

This week's second-largest bow belongs to Atlantic’s Gucci Mane, whose Mr. Davis arrives at #2 with 64k+. Beck’s Colors (Capitol) debuts at #4 with around 41k.

As for the remaining new releases, St. Vincent’s Masseduction (Loma Vista) can be found at #13. Wu-Tang’s The Saga Continues (36 Chambers/eOne) is #14, and Robert Plant’s Carry Fire (Nonesuch) is #15.

Then there are the noteworthy moves. Post Malone’s Stoney (Republic) moves into the Top 3 for the first time since the set’s December 2016 release. Stoney’s now-buzzing “I Fall Apart” just went #31-6-4 on our Streaming Songs Chart. It also made it into the Top 5 of our Song Revenue Chart this week. Meanwhile, his mega-smash, “rockstar” f/21 Savage, remains #1 on both. Ed Sheeran’s Divide (Atlantic) jumps #10-5 on the SPS chart, as latest single “Perfect” goes Top 20 at Pop radio, moves #22-13 on the Song Revenue Chart and enters the Streaming Songs Chart at #32.

KIDinaKORNER/Interscope’s Imagine Dragons inch closer to making a Top 5 return, as Evolve hops #8-6. Second and current single “Thunder” just went Top 15 at Pop radio and Top 3 at Alternative; lead single “Believer” is still Top 10 at the latter.

And Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. (TDE/Interscope), which is at the center of Grammy Album of the Year conversations, rises #11-8.

Further down on the chart, Astralwerks/Capitol’s Halsey—the new face of Jeep’s “Release Your Renegade” campaign—sees her hopeless fountain kingdom go #38-27.

The last time we released our renegade, we were slapped with a restraining order. To be fair, though, Renegade is a terrible name for a pet ferret.

When it comes to SPS marketshare, SME is victorious with 43%, UMG is #2 with 30% and WMG is #3 with 25%. The indies follow with 3%.

Streeting this week is a red-hot surprise mixtape by Freebandz/Epic artist Future and Young Thug, as well as albums from Capitol’s Niall Horan, Capitol Nashville’s Darius Rucker, RCA Nashville’s Chris YoungThird Man’s Margo Price and Mercury Nashville's Tyminski. The deluxe version of Pentatonix’s 2016 Christmas album and an MTV Unplugged George Michael set are also coming via RCA and Legacy, respectively.
