FLIPOVER FRIDAY: ITUNES AND APPLE MUSIC NEW ARRIVALS

While Katy Perry and Britney Spears are duking it out (and have already traded the lead once) on the iTunes Songs chart—where RCA is looking especially good with four of the top six singles—six new titles invade the iTunes Albums chart. 

Needtobreathe’s Hard Love starts the Friday flipover at #1 followed by the hip-hop reggae of Dirty Heads’ self-titled Five Seven Music release.

Youth Authority, the MDDN/Kobalt-released return of Good Charlotte,  clocks in at #3; it’s their first album in six years. A live album from Australia’s Hillsong United, Of Dirt and Grace (Hillsong Church/Capitol), rises up to #5, trailing The BeatlesAbbey Road (Apple/Capitol), which continues to hold its on as part of iTunes’ current $7.99 sale.

The fourth album from MCA Nashville’s David Nail, Fighter, answers the bell at #6, two slots ahead of Steven Tyler’s first country album We’re All Somebody from Somewhere on Dot Records.

Sitting just outside the Top 10 is RCA’s Ghostbusters soundtrack, which will likely rise as the film opens today.

The singles side of iTunes received a rare reshuffling of the deck as RCA’s Spears, Capitol’s Perry and 5 Seconds of Summer shot into the top three slots. Spears’ “Make Me …” f/G-Eazy tops the chart followed by Perry’s Apple-exclusive anthem for the NBC’s coverage of the Rio Olympics, “Rise.”   5 Seconds of Summer get the call at #3 with the first single from the Ghostbusters soundtrack, “Girls Talk Boys.”

Apple Music’s streaming chart, meanwhile, stays put with Drake holding onto the top two slots on the songs chart. “Broccoli” from 1EpicCheck/Empire newcomer D.R.A.M. featuring Atlanta rapper Lil Yachty pops in at #3.

The album Top 10 is 100% Urban with the arrival of 21 Savage & Metro Boomin’s Savage Mode (Slaughter Gang), which hits #8 within 24 hours of its release.
