XO/Republic's The Weeknd owns the top two spots on the iTunes singles chart with the indefatigable "Can't Feel My Face" and "The Hills," while also ruling the album chart with Beauty Behind the Madness, which will at last be released on Friday. 

Mike Dungan's Universal Nashville owns 30% of the Top 10 albums thanks to chart champ Luke Bryan, long-distance runner Sam Hunt and newbie Kip Moore. Messrs. Stringer and Klaiman and team are enjoying Columbia's similar share on the singles side with 1D, Rachel Platten and OMI.

Outside the singles Top 10, look out for 19/Arista Nashville's Carrie Underwood, whose "Smoke Break" is truly smokin' out of the gate and currently sits at #11. Drake's "Hotline Bling" (YMCMB/Republic) is making big strides at #13, and labelmate Hailee Steinfeld, now flying at Pop radio, sits at #15 with "Love Myself."

N.W.A's Straight Outta Compton (Priority/UMe) stays strong in the wake of the movie's dominance; the seminal hip hop album sits at #12 and #14 in two different iterations. 

In other news, Donald Trump is planning to deport all non-resident artists in the Top 100.
