Young Thug’s Punk (Atlantic) and Drake’s Certified Lover Boy (OVO/Republic) appear to be in a dead heat for #1 this week. We’re giving Punk a slight edge today, but the race could easily go the other way. Should Drake log another week at #1, UMG's 2021 tally of weeks atop the chart will reach 36. This would tie the streaming-era record set by the label group last year. In the run-up to her new album, Adele’s 25 vaults back into the Top 20. Look for her 21 to land on our Top 50 as well. Mac Miller, The Beatles and Coldplay seem to be headed for Top 5 debuts.

In other news, the aforementioned chanteuse's "Easy on Me" is reportedly exacerbating supply-chain issues regarding the 18-box package of Kleenex Trusted Care Facial Tissues (190 tissues per box; 3,420 total tissues).
