FLIPOVER FRIDAY: NEW ARRIVALS AT iTUNES AND APPLE MUSIC

The Lockdown Sessions (Interscope), Elton John’s collection of duets recorded while the pandemic had everyone confined to their homes, takes the early lead at iTunes this Flipover Friday. Plenty of familiar names, including another with an Interscope release, follow Sir Elton’s latest.

Lana Del Rey’s Blue Banisters (Interscope) is one of two entries making it into the Top 20 at iTunes—it’s #2—and at Apple Music (#17). The other is Gucci Mane’s So Icy Boyz (1017 Global/Atlantic), which is #6 in sales and #10 in streams.

Back at iTunes, Duran Duran’s Future Past (Tape Modern/BMG) is presently #3; Starset’s Horizons (Fearless) rises to #4; and Dream Theater’s A View From the Top of the World (Ytse James/InsideOut) looks down from #5.

Rufus Du Soul’s Surrender (Rose Avenue/Reprise) is #9 at iTunes and cracks the Top 30 at Apple Music.

Every Time I Die’s Radical and the Super Deluxe edition of The Rolling StonesTattoo You are just outside the Top 10 along with new titles from Pistol Annies, Jesse James Decker and My Morning Jacket.

At iTunes songs, “Big Subwoofer” (Def Jam) from Snoop Dogg’s supergroup Mount Westmore is new at #9.
