CHART STORY: CHROMATICA CROWNED

Lady Gaga scores her sixth #1 debut with Chromatica (Interscope), which leads the HITS Top 50 with 276k units. Gaga’s first-week total gives her the biggest female debut of the year and ranks second among pop album bows in 2020, trailing only BTS Map of the Soul : 7. With pre-release singles “Stupid Love,” “Sour Candy” f/BLACKPINK and the superstar smash “Rain on Me” f/Ariana Grande, Chromatica is already over 375k in activity to date.

Mailboat’s Jimmy Buffett cruises to his largest bow in 15 years with Life on the Flip Side. The 30th studio album from the “Margaritaville” icon clocks in at #2 with 75k.

QC/Motown/Capitol star Lil Baby earns another week inside the Top 3, as My Turn proves it has legs in its 14th week out.

Other top debuts include Anuel AA’s Emanuel (The Orchard/Sony Latin) at #8, Lil Yachty’s Lil Boat 3 (QC/Motown/Capitol) at #14, G Herbo’s PTSD Deluxe (Machine/Epic) at #16, Kygo’s Golden Hour (RCA) at #17 and Kip Moore’s Wild World (MCA Nashville) at #31.

In an act of solidarity with the black community, releases from the major labels were halted this week as the biz paused the show.

Go to the HITS Top 50.
