CHART STORY: HOODIE HOLDS, SPIDER CRAWLS UPWARD

A Boogie Wit da Hoodie’s Hoodie SZN (Atlantic) spends a second week at #1 on the HITS  Top 50 Chart, moving north of 55k. Republic’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack did, however, get close to unseating the set, which happens to be down when it comes to percentages. Spidey, up 11%, goes #3-2, ending the week with 53k.

Post Malone f/Swae Lee’s “Sunflower” (Republic)—the lead single from Spider-Man—is #1 on the Streaming Songs Chart with 28.8m streams, while also the top earner on the Song Revenue Chart with more than $220k. Thanks in large part to this added visibility, intensified further by the release of standalone single “Wow,” Post’s last album, beerbongs & bentleys, grows #5-4 on the Top 50 Chart, tacking on 43k.

And as Oscar buzz loudens, Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack remains in the Top 10, scoring 40k on behalf of Interscope. Hollywood’s Queen-packed Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack re-enters at #14 with 27k. At this point, employees of karaoke bars worldwide may never stop twitching.

In looking at marketshare, UMG is #1 with 54%, WMG follows with 29% and SME is #3 with 14%, while the indies claim 3%.

Streeting this week are projects by Freebandz/Epic’s Future, Capitol’s Maggie Rogers, Warner Music Nashville’s Cody Johnson and Island’s Mike Posner.
