That included, a total of four debuts make up the Top 5, as Lil Baby’s Street Gossip (QC/Motown/Capitol), The 1975’s A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships (Interscope) and Ski Mask the Slump God’s Stokeley (Victor Victor Worldwide/Republic) make waves at #3, #4 and #5 with 84k, 61k and 52k, respectively.

And yes, we know you eagerly await HITS tour-de-force Buddy the Brown Nosed Weasel. Patience is a virtue.
