Kacey Musgraves' follow-up to her Grammy-winning Golden Hour, a 20-year-old Aaliyah album making its online debut, and the first full-length from Baby Keem lead the new arrivals at iTunes and Apple Music this flipover Friday.

Aaliyah’s self-titled third album for Blackground, originally released in 2001, and Musgraves' star-crossed (Mercury Nashville/Interscope) are the only two collections debuting in the Top 20 in both sales and streaming. Aaliyah is #1 at iTunes, one slot ahead of Musgraves, whose star-crossed is #15 at Apple Music. Aaliyah is #19 on the streaming chart.

Baby Keem’s The Melodic Blue (Columbia) is the top new arrival at Apple Music, coming in at #6, ahead of J Balvin’s JOSE (Universal Latin) at #12.

Back on the sales side, Barlow & Bear’s self-released The Unofficial Bridgerton Musical is #3 and Jeremy Camp’s When You Speak (Sparrow/Capitol CMG) chimes in at #4.

The Metallica Blacklist (Blackened), featuring 53 covers of songs from the band’s “black album,” opens at #6. Yebba, the Memphis singer heard on Drake’s Certified Lover Boy, opens at #7 with her debut, Dawn (RCA). AZ’s Doe or Die II (Quiet Money) is #8.

Mitchell Tenpenny’s eight-song EP Midtown Diaries (River House/Sony) parks at #9 and Endless Praise from Charity Gayle is #10.

At songs, YG/Interscope's Lisa has two songs in the Top 10: “LALISA” at #2 and "MONEY" at #9. Sam Hunt’s “23” (MCA Nashville) is #7.
