THE AIN'T THAT IS

Luke CombsWhat You See Ain’t Always What You Get (River House/Columbia Nashville) is the early favorite for the #1 spot on this week’s HITS Top 50. The deluxe version of his 2019 album benefits from exceptionally strong streaming, which could make up as much as 75% of its weekly total.

As for singles, Ariana Grande's "positions" (Republic) debuted atop Spotify's U.S. and Global charts, while Combs' "Forever After All" leads on Apple Music's charts. Both tracks are approaching 7m in streams after one day. As Lenny Beer likes to say, that's biiiiig.

Luke Combs (River House/Columbia Nashville) 85-100k total activity, 20-25k albums
Bruce Springsteen (Columbia) 60-70k, 55-65k
Ty Dolla $ign (Atlantic) 35-45k, 1-3k

In political news, early voting among younger voters is reportedly reaching unprecedented levels, a development that could have catastrophic ramifications for both the GOP and sales of Maalox.
