NEW RELEASES: LIONS
ON THE LOOSE

Beastmode 2 (Freebandz/Epic), the second volume of Future’s mixtape series, surprise-dropped on 7/6 amid a sparse holiday release schedule, will be the top debut on the HITS’ Top 50 Albums Chart next Friday. Here’s what we know today.

Future (Freebandz/Epic) 50-60k total activity (streaming only)
Meek Mill (Atlantic) 22-26k, 4-7k album

Meanwhile, Drake continues to dominate Apple Music and Spotify with tracks from his chart-topping, record-breaking YMCMB/Republic set Scorpion, but Future’s latest has begun to infiltrate the various streaming charts.

While Future's two lions are on the loose, England's Three Lions are in the semi-finals of the World Cup after defeating Sweden 2-nil Saturday in Sochi. On Wednesday, they'll play Croatia, which overcame host team Russia in a 4-3 penalty shootout following an extra period that ended in a 2-2 deadlock.

England won the Cup in 1966 and last made the semis in 1990, finishing in fourth place. Our many Brit friends in the biz are undoubtedly imbibing multiple refreshing summer cocktails at the moment.
