EARLY READS ON NEW RELEASES: WE GIVE IT TO YA STRAIT

Country Giant Takes Lead Among Week's Debuts; Fetty Wap Radically Underperforming

Based on limited Saturday info, we should see some battles on both charts next week. On the album chart, country icon George Strait takes the early lead with his Walmart/iTunes exclusive. The rest of the Top 5 could land in any order as of now, with debuts from Don Henley, Thomas Rhett and the massively underperforming Fetty Wap all fighting to hold on against Drake & Future in its second week. On the SPS chart, Fetty Wap will battle the Drake-Future mixtape, which, after a first-week iTunes/Apple Music exclusive, is now available at all digital retailers and streaming services.

George Strait (MCA Nashville) 75-80k albumss, 78-82k SPS
Fetty Wap (WMG) 70-75k, 110-115k
Don Henley (Capitol) 70-75k, 71-76k
Thomas Rhett (Valory/BMLG) 65-70k, 72-77k
CHVRCHES (Glassnote) 25-28k, 32-35k
Disclosure (Capitol) 24-27k, 28-32k
