TOP 50 CHART:
HE HAS RISEN

Kanye West’s Jesus Is King (G.O.O.D./Def Jam) has officially debuted at #1 on the HITS Top 50 Chart. The faith-forward set earns 276k—more than triple the #2 record, and the rest of the Top 5 combined.

We’re just bummed there weren’t any Jesus-branded kippahs available to purchase on the merch site.

Post Malone’s 85k at #2, though, is no small feat. Hollywood’s Bleeding (Republic) reaches an RTD of 2.5m in its eighth week out.

The week’s second-largest bow comes from RCA’s Rex Orange County, whose Pony enters at #4 with an impressive 63k. Meanwhile, Old Dominion’s eponymous new release—out via RCA Nashville—appears at #8 with 29k.

Rounding out the Top 5, Summer Walker’s Over It (LVRN/Interscope) tacks 62k onto its total.

When it comes to marketshare, UMG leads with 61% and WMG follows with 20%, while SME claims 18% and the indies nab 1%.

Streeting this week is the new albums from RCA Nashville’s Miranda Lambert and Capitol Nashville’s Hootie & the Blowfish, as well as Mariah Carey’s Merry Christmas 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (Legacy).

Speaking of Christmas, is it inappropriate to make start making our omelets and scrambles with eggnog?
