A PLETHORA OF NEW RELEASES

AC/DC's Power Up (Columbia) will battle Future & Lil Uzi Vert's Pluto x Baby Pluto project (Generation Now/Epic) for #1 on this week's HITS Top 50. While the Aussie rockers will be powered by sales, the hip-hop duo will depend on streaming for the bulk of their total.

A shit-ton of new releases will impact the chart:

  • Future & Lil Uzi Vert (Freebandz/Epic/Generation Now/Atlantic) 110-120k total activity, 2-4k albums
  • AC/DC (Columbia) 105-115k, 100-110k
  • Chris Stapleton (Mercury Nashville) 70-80k, 55-65k
  • 2 Chainz (Gamebread/Def Jam) 25-28k, 1-2k
  • Andrea Bocelli (Decca) 21-24k, 20-23k
  • Youngboy Never Broke Again (Never Broke Again/Atlantic) 21-24k, 1-3k
  • Pentatonix (RCA) 14-17k, 11-14k

Baby Pluto reminds us that it's time to take a gummy and catch up on The Mandalorian.
