EVERYBODY IN THE POOL

XL's Radiohead, despite having dropped their album on Sunday and thus having had only a five-day debut week, surpasses second-week superstars Drake and Beyoncé to grab the #1 spot on the HITS Album Sales Chart with A Moon Shaped Pool as we head toward the finish line. It's another example of the ever-evolving use of digital services in these changing times—and a fresh indicator of the trailblazing band's ability to mobilize fans (they also scored a #1 in the U.K. this week).

  1. Radiohead (XL) 175k
  2. Drake (YMCMB/Republic) 167k
  3. Beyoncé (Columbia) 154k

It's worth reiterating that Radiohead reached this album-chart pinnacle with digital downloads alone, as physical retail hasn't yet entered their sales picture (they are streaming on Apple Music and Tidal behind a paywall, but not on Spotify). Streaming phenoms Drake and Bey (who did add physical this week) will occupy the top two spots on the SPS chart.
