NEW RELEASES: 21 TO #1 AND OTHER BOOMIN BUSINESS

21 Savage and Metro Boomin will easily take the #1 spot on Friday’s HITS Top 50. Epic shares this release with Republic, adding yet another #1 to the latter’s impressive 2020 run. Savage Mode II will log the largest weekly total yet for 21 Savage, whose best start hitherto was in December 2018, when I Am > I Was opened with 131k. This is Epic’s second #1 of the year following Future’s High Off Life, which debuted with 153k in May. Interscope's distaff K-Pop group BLACKPINK also appear headed for a six-digit bow.

Here’s what we know at the moment.

21 Savage & Metro Boomin (Slaughter Gang/Epic/Boominati/Republic) 170-195k total activity, 14-17k album
BLACKPINK (Interscope) 110-125k, 90-100k
Bryson Tiller (RCA) 75-85k, 6-9k
Lany (Interscope) 40-50k, 30-40k
Bon Jovi (Island) 19-22k, 18-21k
