NEW RELEASES:
A HIP-HOP FACE-OFF? (UPDATE)

There may be some chart drama brewing, as Chance the Rapper and NF are on track to control this week's top two spots. The two releases have D2C offers and strong streaming, so each has an upside. 

Chance the Rapper (Chance the Rapper) 110-125k total activity, 24-27k album
NF (NF Real/Caroline) 85-95k, 50-55k
Of Monsters and Men (Republic) 30-35k, 27-30k
Justin Moore (Valory/BMLG) 21-24k, 17-20k

Chance's "Hot Shower" is leading on the streaming platforms, sitting Top 5 at Apple Music and holding the #8 spot at Spotify; "All Day Long" is Top 10 at Apple. NF and Chance have the top two albums at iTunes, respectively, and are at #2 and #3 at Amazon.

Stay tuned for further updates.
