CHART FINAL: A CERTIFIED BLOCKBUSTER

Drake's Certified Lover Boy (OVO/Republic) opens at #1 on the HITS Top 50 with the biggest first week total of the year: 604k. The blockbuster album earned around 700m first-week streams, the most since his 2018 record-setter, Scorpion.

In its opening day, CLB broke the all-time record at both Apple Music and Spotify for the most global album streams in 24 hours.

Kanye West's Donda (G.O.O.D./Def Jam) moves to #2. It posts 146k in its second week. 

Other top debuts include Imagine Dragons' Mercury - Act I (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope) at #9 and Lady Gaga's remix album, Dawn of Chromatica (Interscope), which vaults the project to #20.
