CHART FINAL: EIGHT
IS NOT ENOUGH

Morgan Wallen's eighth week at #1 on the HITS Top 50 Chart will likely be followed by a ninth, and his Dangerous (Big Loud/Republic) has logged the most consecutive preliminary weeks of any country album since Billy Ray Cyrus' 1992 blockbuster, Some Gave All. Will Morgan make it to 10 weeks before Justin Bieber's Justice knocks him from the top spot? Stay tuned. Meanwhile, The Weeknd's Highlights reel rushes to #2 as his Super Bowl perf continues to reverberate. Republic owns the Top 3 once again, and 40% of the Top 10.

There are no new releases in the Top 10, but this is merely the calm before the storm; look for a flurry of superstar titles in the coming months. Head over to the chart here.

For our QAnon readers: Playing the Top 5 records on this week's chart backwards will not reveal the location of Hillary Clinton's secret vampire pizza kitchen.
