CHART STORY:
FOUNTAIN DRINK

Astralwerks/Capitol's Halsey tops this week's SPS chart with 111k for her hopeless fountain kingdom. TDE/Interscope's indefatigable Kendrick Lamar takes #2 with about 68k. The second edition of Epic AF takes #3 and Nashville breakout Luke Combs bows at #4; they earn 48k and 45k, respectively. Rounding out the Top 5 is Ed Sheeran, who adds another 44k or so to Divide.

The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper reboot (Capitol) takes #6 with nearly 43k (-36%); last week's #1, Bryson Tiller, is #9 with the Trapsoul/RCA set True to Self, good for 32k+. Columbia's Roger Waters finishes up the Top 10 with his controversial new set, racking up about the same number.

Alt-rock upstarts All Time Low bow at #13 with just about 30k for their Fueled by Ramen set. U2's Joshua Tree reissue (Interscope) scores around 28k, good for #16.

UMG takes 54% marketshare, followed by Sony at 25% and WMG at 21%.

Streeting at presstime is Capitol superstar Katy Perry with Witness, as well as Capitol Nashville's Lady Antebellum, TDE/RCA's Sza, Glassnote's Phoenix and final statements from Dualtone's Chuck Berry and UMe's Glen Campbell.

Now if you'll excuse us, we need to go testify before Congress about that time we were alone in a room with Trump. We need a SCIF and a shower.
