CHART FINAL: 2021'S BIGGEST BOW

Adele's 30 (Columbia) posts the biggest bow of the year on the HITS Top 50, earning 838k its first week. 80% of 30's total is from pure sales. Dive into Adele's first-week streaming info here

30 is the first album since Taylor Swift's folklore in July 2020 to debut north of 800k units. Swift's Red (Taylor's Version) (Republic) moves to #2 with 169k in its second week. 

Expect a bigger margin of error in our calculations this week due to the holiday and those few extra rounds of spiked eggnog on Thursday evening.
