CHART PREVIEW: ADELE STREAMS AHEAD

Adele's 30 (Columbia) scores the year's biggest debut by at least 200k. 30 will also become the sixth- or seventh-most-streamed album by a female artist, with U.S. streams expected to finish close to 200m. The wizard known as Taylor Swift holds down three of the Top 5 on that list:

Ariana Grande, thank u, next (Republic): 360m
Taylor Swift, Red (Taylor's Version) (Republic): 281m
Olivia Rodrigo, SOUR (Geffen): 281m
Taylor Swift, folklore (Republic): 272m
Taylor Swift, evermore (Republic): 209m
Summer WalkerStill Over It (LVRN/Interscope): 191m

Will Adele surpass Walker's total? How high will 30's first-week activity go? Check out the HITS Top 50 this afternoon to find out. In the meantime, you may resume your turkey-leftovers odyssey.
