YOUR TOP 20: A RACE
TO THE FINISH (UPDATE)


The duel for #1 at SPS between Logic and Chris Stapleton keeps taking more twists and turns, with the battle causing both projects to blow past their initial (and even updated) forecasts. After the latest surges by both titles, Logic (with big streaming and D2C) has edged into the lead, while word of mouth on Stapleton remains stellar.
