CHART STORY: MORE TAY, METALLICA & KATY BOW

Taylor Swift holds on to #1 for a sixth consecutive week on the HITS Top 50, with late labelmate Pop Smoke's set at #2. Swift's streak of six-in-a-row is the longest run at #1 since Drake's Views in 2016.

The top three spots have remained the same for three weeks in a row now, with Grade A/Interscope's Juice WRLD holding strong at #3 once again.

Metallica lands the top debut at #4 with S&M2 posting 55k. Two bows from the Tower follow: Katy Perry's Smile (Capitol) at #5 with 54k and Internet Money's B4 The Storm (Internet Money/10K Projects) at #9 with 32k.

Meanwhile, Harry Styles becomes the tenth act in 2020 to pass the 1m mark in total activity.
