FLIPOVER FRIDAY: NEW ARRIVALS AT iTUNES AND APPLE MUSIC

The Dave Matthews Band’s 10th album, Come Tomorrow (Bama Rags/RCA), secures the top spot at iTunes this flipover Friday that finds rookies ruling the Top 10.

Six years after taking a hiatus, Sugarland returns with Bigger (BMLG) at #2 followed by Dierks Bentley’s tribute to the Rockies, The Mountain (Capitol Nashville) at #3. Kids See Ghosts, the Kid Cudi-Kanye West collaboration (G.O.O.D./Def Jam), moves up to #4 despite being "ingested" into the system a bit on the late side. Though it's not a new release, we note Kanye's Ye (G.O.O.D./Def Jam) holding fast at #5.

Artificial Selection from Sacramento rockers Dance Gavin Dance (Rise) steps into # ahead of metal act Tremonti at #6 with A Dying Machine (Napalm) just behind.

Jeff Williams’ fifth volume of songs for the anime series RWBY (Rooster Teeth) is #9 while Lily Allen’s third album No Shame (Parlophone) is #10.

Plenty of new titles lurking just beyond #10, among them Lykke Li’s first RCA release—and fourth overall— so sad so sexy, Good Man from Motown’s Ne-Yo and Angelique Kidjo’s interpretation of Talking HeadsRemain in Light.

At iTunes songs, Kane Brown’s “Lose It” (RCA Nashville) is #1 24 hours after its release (with Maroon 5's video-powered "Girls Like You" f/Cardi B at #2) and BMLG's Florida Georgia Line takes #3 with "Simple." Fellow Nashvillians Little Big Town take #6 with new cut "Summer Fever" (Capitol Nashville), while Why Don’t We’s “Hooked” (Signature/Atlantic), released Thursday as well, is #8. Dan + Shay’s “Tequila” (Warner Nashville), released in advance of their self-titled 6/22 full-length, is #10. For those of you keeping score, and we know you are, that's four country acts in the Top 10.

Chief Keef’s five-track Ottopsy EP (Digiglo/RBC) is the top newcomer at Apple Music, landing at #10.
