YOUR BIG LIL TOP 20

Lil is scarcely the word to describe Tha Carter V, Lil Wayne’s highly anticipated next chapter in his Carter series. It will be the third or fourth biggest debut of this year, behind Drake (732k), Travis Scott (537k) and possibly Post Malone (461k).

Meanwhile, as regards the #2 spot, we may be looking at a battle between Cher and Logic. Which is something Sonny used to say on their comedy-variety series, but that's a whole other matter.

*DEBUTS

In political news, we never got in a bar fight over UB40, but we did once write an indignant letter about The Psychedelic Furs. Long story.
