CHART STORY: MORE CHAMPAGNE FOR PAPI

In an incredibly shocking turn of events, Drake’s Scorpion (YMCMB/Republic) manages to hold down the #1 spot on our Top 50 Chart, this time with 147k. For those of you keeping track, this is the star’s fifth consecutive week at #1. His RTD is currently hovering around 2.5m.

Kenny Chesney scores the week’s biggest bow, as his first release through Blue Chair/Warner Nashville, Songs for the Saints, debuts at #2 with 81k.

Kenny included, a total of five new releases make the Top 20 this week. Halestorm’s Vicious (Atlantic) is #8, Daughtry’s Cage to Rattle (19/RCA) appears at #10 and Cody JinksLifers (Rounder) enters at #11, while G Herbo & Southside’s Swervo (Epic) takes the #17 spot.

Meanwhile, Grade A/Interscope’s Juice WRLD makes one of the more noteworthy moves, jumping back into the Top 5 with Goodbye & Good Riddance. His hit single, “Lucid Dreams,” can also be found at #3 on our Song Revenue Chart and #4 on our Streaming Songs Chart.    

When it comes to market share, UMG is #1 with 57%, WMG follows with 29% and SME is #3 with 12%, while the indies claim 2%.

Streeting this week are sets from Grand Hustle/Epic’s Travis Scott, Warner Bros.Mac Miller, Def Jam’s YG, Island’s Iggy Azalea, N-Less/Interscope’s Moneybagg Yo and RCA’s H.E.R.

In other news, it’s International Beer Day! Remember shotgunning doesn’t work with bottles. We learned this the hard way.
