CHART STORY:
BON JOVI’S BACK

A little over a month before his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, Island’s Bon Jovi re-enters our Top 50 Chart at #1. The deluxe edition of 2016 album This House Is Not for Sale moves 131k, thanks mainly to ticket bundle redemptions.

Consequently, TDE/Aftermath/Interscope’s Black Panther album, after two weeks at #1, slides to #2 with 98k.

ScumGang/TenThousand’s 6ix9ine has the highest-charting new release in Day69, which debuts at #4 with approximately 55k. Meanwhile, Vance Joy’s Nation of Two (Atlantic) bows at #9 with 28k. Passion’s Whole Heart (Live) (SixSteps) comes in at #32, and Blac Youngsta’s 223 (Epic/CMG) lands at #38.

And with only a day’s worth of activity, K-Pop album Hope World by BTS member j-hope debuts at #41.

When it comes to marketshare, UMG is #1 with 58%, WMG follows with 24% and SME is #3 with 17%, while the indies claim 2%.

Streeting this week are sets from Mad Love/Interscope’s Tory Lanez and Strange Music’s Tech N9ne.

On the singles side, Republic’s Post Malone is red-hot with “Psycho,” which debuts at #1 on our Streaming Songs Chart, topping Drake’s 41.3m with 46.3m. Malone’s latest, which follows record-breaking smash “rockstar,” is clearly huge; it topped its predecessor’s first-week number (37m+). And remember: his forthcoming full-length, Beerbongs and Bentleys, is due in late spring/early summer.

And speaking of beerbongs… Oh, you get the idea.
