FLIPOVER FRIDAY: NEW ARRIVALS AT iTUNES AND APPLE MUSIC (UPDATE)

Nicki Minaj's Queen (YMCMB/Republic) has assumed the #1 throne on the iTunes album chart—where she remained on midday Saturday. She's followed by Jason Mraz's sixth studio album, Know (Atlantic), and the debut album from Trippie Redd on TenThousand Projects/Caroline.

Two other rookies are in the iTunes Top 15. Texas troubadour William Clark Green's self-released Herbert Island can be found at #8; Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears lands at #13 with his eponymous set (Freida Jean). Oh, and this kid named Elvis Presley is impressing with his gospel set Where No One Stands Alone (RCA).

Cody Johnson’s “On My Way to You” (CoJo/Warner Nashville) has shot to #1 on the singles side. It's followed by Nicki's "Barbie Dreams."

Over at Apple Music, Nicki's "Barbie Dreams" is #1. There, she has four other tracks in the Top 10. Trippie's "Taking a Walk" is #9. Nicki has the #1 album on the streaming serving, and Trippie has the #3 (behind Travis Scott's ASTROWORLD, of course)

We’re also keeping an eye on three new songs from Migos frontman Quavo—“Bubblegum,” “Lambtalk” and “Workin’ Me”—which were released by QC/Motown/Capitol.
