iTUNES CHARTS: On a far from vibrant changeover Tuesday, the singles chart is essentially locked, each of the 10 slots occupied by a track with staying power. There have been, however, a couple of noteworthy moves on the album side. As for the top perch, what we have here is yet another case of hardcore fans pulling all-nighters to grab the brand new release from their favorite band in the world—Relient K in this case, one of two Christian debuts on the big board this morning, along with the Hillsong collective. Is there some correlation between devotion (to a particular band, religion or both) and insomnia? Just sayin’.  While Relient K’s time in the catbird seat will likely be brief, it appears the J. Cole isn’t going anywhere for a while, as the up-and-coming rapper zips past both Kanye West, whose neck he’s been breathing down since both albums hit on June 18, and Wale, the incumbent chart-topper. Will Born Sinner surpass Yeezus on the HITS chart when it closes early this afternoon—in what sounds like a triumph of evil over good, figuratively speaking? That’s a budding rivalry worth watching as it plays out. (7/2a)
