A SQUEAKER OF A CHART STORY

Following a heated race to the top, Question Everything/RCA’s Brockhampton crosses the finish line with a #1 bow on the Top 50 Chart, moving 106k with Iridescence. Both Brockhampton and Reprise’s Josh Groban, whose Bridges lands at #2 with nearly 97k, were boosted by large D2C and ticket bundle numbers.

Meanwhile, Prince’s Piano & A Microphone 1983 (Warner Bros.) debuts at #8 with 35k. As for the remaining key bows, Paper Route/EMPIRE’s Young Dolph appears at #13.

The most noteworthy move is made by Centricity’s Lauren Daigle, whose Look Up Child jumps #20-14, thanks in part to impassioned social media support from none other than Selena Gomez. Hallelujah!

When it comes to marketshare, UMG is #1 with 46%, WMG follows with 28% and SME is #3 with 19%, while the indies claim 7%.

Streeting this week are sets by Young Money’s Lil Wayne, Warner Bros.’ Cher, Def Jam’s Logic and Bread Winners Association’s Kevin Gates. And then, of course, there’s Kanye. At press time, the G.O.O.D./Def Jam star is still expected to drop YANDHI on Saturday night (9/29). We just hope Gandhi explores a rap career by responding with GANYE.
