NEW RELEASES: WITH A LIL UPDATE

So here’s the deal: With limited info available, early reads give the returning Lil Wayne a smashing #1 debut with star-studded set Tha Carter V—the third-biggest bow of the year, behind Drake (732k) and Travis Scott (537k). Cher’s bubbling batch of ABBA covers makes a splash, driven by a strong ticket bundle.

Oh, and a 10/1 tweet from Kim Kardashian says Kanye West’s Yandhi is due to drop... on 11/23. It was expected this weekend, with most predictors figuring it would arrive after the G.O.O.D./Def Jam superstar’s SNL performance. Instead, the world was treated to some baffling political rants.

Lil Wayne (Young Money) 475-525k total activity, 165-180k album
Cher (Warner Bros.) 160-180k, 155-175k
Logic (Def Jam) 90-110k, 45-55k

We note, by the way, that Wayne's Tha Carter IV (not his last release, but this set's true predecessor) debuted in 2011 with 964k, long before streaming was a thing.
