CHART FINAL: A MAJOR WEEK FOR WEST

Kanye West opens at #1 on the HITS Top 50, as Donda (G.O.O.D./Def Jam) earns the biggest debut of the year with 327k—in just five days of activity, no less. Ye's tenth studio album also amassed 360m audio streams in its abbreviated opening week, giving the album the most first-week steams in 2021. Other feats by West's unorthodox first week include the most single-day streams in 2021 on both Apple Music and Spotify, which held until Drake's Certified Lover Boy completed its first day of activity on 9/3.

Capitol's Halsey enters at #2 with If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power. The Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross collaboration debuts with 100k. 

Other top debuts include Lil Tecca's We Love You Tecca 2 (Galactic/Republic) at #10 and OneRepublic's Human (Mosely/Interscope) at #11.
