MONTE'S FOUR-PACK

Monte Lipman and team are still buzzing over Republic’s killer chart performance. The label sees four of its titles in the Top 6 of the HITS Top 50 chart, led by Taylor Swift at #1 with Red (Taylor’s Version), which earned the week’s second-biggest bow. TWICE (on JYP/Imperial/ Republic via Ingrooves) finished at #3, while the relentless Drake (whose Certified Lover Boy retains 2021’s biggest-debut record for another week) and Morgan Wallen took #5 and #6, respectively.

This fall weather, Monte would like to point out, is perfect for a handsome red scarf to replace the one you left behind.
