CHART STORY:
JHENÉ SAIS QUOI

Lil Uzi Vert notches the second-biggest debut of 2020 so far with 311k—earning #1 on the HITS Top 50—though it doesn’t come close to YTD champs BTS, who topped our chart two weeks ago with 411k. Def Jam diva Jhené Aiko makes a strong #2 bow, as Chilombo moves 153k units. And K-Pop group NCT 127 (SM/Caroline) scores the third-biggest bow, with 90k, good for a #5 finish. 

Two more debuts make the Top 50: Lauv (AWAL) comes in at #13, and Ruff Ryders/Def Jam’s Jadakiss enters at #29.

As for the incumbents, Lil Baby (QC/Motown/Capitol), last week’s chart-topper, stays solid at #4 with 104k, while Latin sensation Bad Bunny (Rimas), who came in #2 a week ago, leapfrogs Baby to snag #3 behind 118k. Both continue to stream like nobody’s business.

Among the albums making upward moves are Post Malone’s ubiquitous Hollywood’s Bleeding (Republic), which moves up two slots to #7; Billie Eilish’s game-changing debut (Darkroom/Interscope), which goes #15-14; and Post’s two previous releases, at #24 and #35.

Reentries include Republic’s Jonas Brothers at #31, while Warner Nashville’s Blake Shelton gallops back to #44, four slots ahead of Warner RecordsMac Miller.

UMG once again tops the marketshare competition with 48%, followed by WMG’s 31%, while Sony Music takes 18% of the pie.

Charting this week are projects from Capitol 1D alumnus Niall Horan, RCA’s Trolls: World Tour soundtrack and a pair from Republic: Rich the Kid and Two Feet.
