CHART STORY: SELENA IN RARE FORM

Selena Gomez debuts at #1 on the HITS Top 50 Chart with her third album, Rare (Interscope), which finishes the week with 116k in total activity. Powered by her hit single and soon-to-be Pop radio chart-topper “Lose You to Love Me,” Gomez has achieved a rare feat for modern-day pop stars, making a hefty bow without a ticket bundle. Roddy Ricch moves down a tick to #2 with 109k.

The second-biggest bow of the week belongs to Moneybagg Yo’s Time Served, which lands at #3 with 65k units. The streaming-heavy project is packed with high-profile features including Future, Lil Baby and DaBaby, who rounds out the Top 5 with his own album, Kirk (South Coast/Interscope).  

The top two bows add to Interscope’s dominance in the upper reaches of the chart, as the label scores eight titles in the Top 20 and three in the Top 5. Gomez and Moneybagg Yo join DaBaby, #9 Billie Eilish, #11 Summer Walker, #16 Rod Wave and a pair of Juice WRLD albums at %12 and %15.

As for marketshare, UMG leads with 59%, followed by WMG’s 23% and SME’s  18%.

Streeting this week are Eminem’s surprise drop, Music to Be Murdered By (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope), Halsey’s Manic (Capitol), Mac Miller’s Circles (Warner), Little Big Town’s Nightfall (Capitol Nashville) and Dreamville’s Revenge of the Dreamers III: Director’s Cut (Dreamville/Interscope).
