THE CHART BEARS WITNESS TO PERRY'S POWER

Capitol star Katy Perry has officially scored her third #1 debut, as Witness tops the Sales Plus Streaming (SPS) Chart with 187k. This means back-to-back chart-toppers for Team Barnett, following Halsey's #1 last week.

As for the other big bows, Capitol Nashville’s Lady Antebellum rounds out the Top 3 with 60k for Heart Break, and TDE/RCA’s SZA follows at #4 with 55k for Ctrl.

And a little further down, at #11, Virgin’s Rise Against appears with 27k for Wolves.

The steadily selling albums from TDE/Interscope’s Kendrick Lamar and Atlantic’s Ed Sheeran, meanwhile, maintain their last-week positions, holding at #3 and #5, respectively.

With Lamar and SZA both in the Top 5, drinks are on TDE chief Top Dawg.

Post Malone’s Stoney (Republic), breaks back into the Top 10 in its 27th week out. The rapper’s current single, “Congratulations,” which features the red-hot Quavo, is #7 on this week’s Song Revenue Chart, as well as the Streaming Songs Chart. At the same time, labelmate The Weeknd, whose “Reminder” is climbing up the Rhythm radio Top 15 right now, makes his return to the SPS Top 20 with Starboy (XO/Republic).

Lindsey Buckingham & Christine McVie’s self-titled set (out via Atlantic) debuts just outside the Top 20, at #22. On the Album Sales Chart, however, the duo is sittin’ pretty at #6.

Speaking of album sales, potentially the most noteworthy move on that chart belongs to the cast of Broadway play Dear Evan Hansen, as the soundtrack re-enters at #23 (up over 200%), powered by the Tony Awards.

Sticking with SPS, you’ll notice that the RCA-helmed soundtrack to family film Trolls (not to be confused with a documentary about our current political administration) jumps #28-21, in tandem with the movie’s arrival at Netflix.

Then there’s Disney’s Beauty and the Beast soundtrack, which re-enters at #31 as the DVD is released.

And at #33, you’ll find a familiar face. Following Taylor Swift’s decision to put her music back up on Spotify, her 1989 (Big Machine) re-enters the chart.

When it comes to the SPS marketshare battle, UMG leads with 64%, SME is #2 with 20% and WMG follows with 16%.

Streeting this week are albums from Lava/Republic’s Lorde, Def Jam’s 2 Chainz, Southeastern's Jason IsbellEpic’s Big Boi, BMG’s Nickelback and Warner Bros.Royal Blood.
