CHART STORY: ONE NATION UNDER STATION

Capitol’s Paul McCartney can officially celebrate his first #1 chart debut as a solo artist. With approximately 146k, Egypt Station—Macca’s 18th solo studio album—managed to edge past Eminem’s Kamikaze (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope), which finished its second week on the Top 50 Chart with 127k. Centricity’s Lauren Daigle, meanwhile, scores the second-biggest bow, as Look Up Child appears at #3 with 108k, making Steve Barnett’s week all the sweeter.

RussZOO (Russ My Way/Columbia) and $uicideboy$’ I Want to Die in New Orleans (G59/Caroline) serve as the remaining key debuts, landing at #4 and #8 with 79k and 46k, respectively.

Following the untimely death of Mac Miller, the Warner Bros. rapper/singer/producer’s latest release, Swimming, moves 65k—enough to re-enter the chart at #5. Four other sets also return; 2011 mixtape Best Day Ever can be found at #24, while 2011 debut album Blue Slide Park comes back in at #43, 2016’s Divine Feminine is #46 and 2013’s Watching Movies with the Sound Off is #50.

As for the label groups, UMG wins this week’s marketshare battle with 61% of the pie. WMG follows with 20% and SME comes in third with 17%, while the indies claim 2%.

Streeting this week are albums by Capitol Nashville’s Carrie Underwood, LVRN/Interscope’s 6LACK, Parlophone’s David Guetta and Capitol’s Tori Kelly, as well as sets from Sony Legacy’s Willie Nelson and Verve’s Tony Bennett & Diana Krall.

In other news, this Saturday is Batman Day, according to DC Comics. Unfortunately, our cape is at the dry cleaners, perhaps because we got overly excited about National Linguine Day (also 9/15).
