A TIGHT TOP 20 (UPDATE)

UPDATE: In the thick of a three-way battle for #1, the top of the chart has been shuffled with Taylor Swift now leading. Here's the latest order as we do our best to keep up with all the action—our last brain cell is barely holding on through this heat wave.


As we suggested over the weekend, #1 on this Friday's HITS Top 50 is up for grabs. We're giving Pop Smoke a very slight edge today but it's far from a done deal. Taylor Swift's deluxe version of folklore, released today, adds "the lakes," the song previously available only on her physical CD.

With three days left in the chart week, is that enough time to make a difference? And will "Smile," Juice WRLD's recent collaboration with The Weeknd contribute strong second week consumption numbers? Lots in play this week, and that doesn't even include a $400k Lamborghini being raffled off by Young Dolph. Watch this space for more.
