FLIPOVER FRIDAY: NEW ARRIVALS AT iTUNES AND APPLE MUSIC

Halloween is in the air which can only mean new albums from metal acts are here to fill the space. Three hard rock albums are among the entries in the all-rookie iTunes Top 10 this flipover Friday, lining up behind Kelly Clarkson.

Clarkson’s Meaning of Life (Atlantic) opens at #1 as she begins a week of heavy TV promotion: Ellen DeGeneres Show today, NBC’s Today on Monday and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday. She drops in on Howard Stern on Wednesday and will livestream an event with Neil DeGrasse Tyson that night.

The metal presence on the iTunes chart early this morning comes from Hollywood Undead’s fifth album, appropriately titled Five (Dove & Grenade/BMG), at #2, Wake Up Call from Atlantic’s Canadian rockers Theory of a Deadman at #5 and Red’s Gone (Provident) at #9.

Rap has two reps in the Top 10: Big K.R.I.T.’s 4eva is a Mighty Long Time (BMG) at #4 and Yelawolf’s Trial By Fire (Shady/Interscope) at #7. Ty Dolla $ign’s Beach House 3 (Atlantic) is the top debut on Apple Music, chilling at #7, and is sitting at #12 at iTunes.

Kenny Chesney’s Live in No Shoes Nation (Blue Chair/Columbia Nashville), which is being bundled with concert tickets, debuts at #3 and the 11th album from Weezer, Pacific Daydream (Crush/Atlantic) cruises in at # 6. Granger Smith’s ninth album, When the Good Guys Win (Wheelhouse) is #9 and Hanson's Christmas album, Finally it's Christmas (BMG) wraps up the Top 10. New titles from Ninja Sex Party, Yo Gotti, The Used and Rachel Platten occupy slots between 11 and 20.

Over on the singles side, Selena Gomez & Marshmello’s “Wolves” continues to hold down the #1 slot two days after its release. With nine of its 45 (!?!?!) tracks released, Chris Brown’s Heartbreak on a Full Moon (RCA) is #11 at Apple Music.
