CHART STORY: JUICE'S RACE TO THE TOP

Grade A/Interscope’s Juice WRLD holds at #1 on the Top 50 Chart for a second consecutive week with sophomore full-length Death Race for Love, which tacks on an additional 74k.

In fact, the entire Top 3 remains the same this week as Ariana Grande’s thank u, next (Republic) and Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack (Interscope) stay strong at #2 and #3, earning another 66k and 38k, respectively.

No debuts managed to make the Top 50 this week, but Queen’s Greatest Hits 1 (Hollywood) did re-enter at #25. The band’s music continues to reap the benefits of award-winning film Bohemian Rhapsody—the actual soundtrack for which hops #5-4.

And as Billie Eilish’s big bow nears, the Darkroom/Interscope talk of the town’s 2017 EP, Don’t Smile at Me, sprints #28-20. Remember: Her premier full-length, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?, is scheduled to make a massive splash when it drops 3/29. We can’t wait to see what John Janick wears to Coachella, and blue hair should definitely be taken into consideration.

The move made by Lauren Daigle's Look Up Child (Centricity/12Tone) is also worth noting. That album goes #44-32, as single "You Say" breaks into the Top 20 at Pop radio. 

When it comes to marketshare, UMG is #1 with 54%, WMG follows with 29% and SME is #3 with 15%, while the indies claim 3%.

Streeting this week are projects by Interscope’s Rich the Kid, XO/Republic’s NAV, Warner Bros.Jenny Lewis and Island’s Dean Lewis.
