CHART STORY: TIMBERLAKE ON TOP

Fresh off his Super Bowl LII halftime performance, RCA’s Justin Timberlake dominates the Top 50 Chart, as fifth studio album Man of the Woods goes #1 with 296k. MigosCulture II (QC/Motown/Capitol), meanwhile, slides to #2, moving more than 90k in its second week out. The red-hot trio also has four songs in the Song Revenue Chart Top 10, with “Walk It Talk It” f/Drake at #2 ($167k+) and “Stir Fry” at #4 ($152k).

Three other new releases make the overall chart’s Top 20 this week. NOW’s Now 65 appears at #10, Rich Brian’s Amen (88rising/EMPIRE) is #16 and AWOLNATION’s Here Come the Runts (Red Bull) comes in at #18.

NF’s Perception (NF Real Music/Caroline) jumps #24-19, as breakout hit “Let You Down” continues to move up inside the Pop radio Top 10 with sights set on the Top 5. As for more noteworthy moves, Maroon 5’s Red Pill Blues (222/Interscope) rises #38-27 in tandem with the release of the “Wait” music video, which stars headline-grabbing actress Alexandra Daddario. And then there’s Warner Bros.Dua Lipa, whose eponymous album goes #34-28, as smash “New Rules” spends a second week at #1 on the Pop radio chart. It’s also worth mentioning that Dua just did SNL.

When it comes to marketshare, SME is #1 with 39%, UMG is #2 with 36% and WMG follows with 23%, while the indies claim 2%.

Streeting this week are TDE/Aftermath/Interscope’s Black Panther and Republic’s Fifty Shades Freed soundtracks, as well as a set from Columbia’s MGMT.

On another note, we really hope our cats enjoy their Valentine’s Day presents. Mookie looks great in pink.
