BUNNY'S BACK AND LUKE'S UP

River House/Columbia Nashville’s Luke Combs earns the top debut on the HITS Top 50 as his third studio album, Growin’ Up, opens with 76k—the biggest country bow of the year. Combs’ new set gives the stadium star three albums in the Top 30.

Bad Bunny returns to #1 for a third time with Un Verano Sin Ti (Rimas), which adds another 114k on its way to becoming the year’s best-selling album. RCA’s Chris Brown premieres in the Top 3, with Breezy posting 73k.

Alamo breakthrough Lil Durk lifts his previous chart-topper, 7220, to #5 with a deluxe edition, while Not So Fast/Epic’s GIVĒON scores a Top 10 debut with his first full-length, Give or Take. Given Columbia’s Harry Styles (#5) and Freebandz/Epic’s Future (#10), Sony dominates the Top 10 with seven titles, anchoring its market-leading 45% share of the Top 50.

Also noteworthy: Nayeon’s Top 10 bow with IM NAYEON (JYP/Imperial/Republic), Conan Gray’s SUPERACHE (Republic) at #11 and, boosted by Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley biopic, RCA’s ELVIS soundtrack and 30 No. 1 Hits. 

Streeting this week are projects from KIDinaKORNER/Interscope’s Imagine Dragons, Supergiant/Def Jam’s Muni Long and EMI Nashville’s Kylie Morgan, plus Decca’s Minions: The Rise of Gru soundtrack.

Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to stir our first beverage of the holiday weekend with this M-80.
