A ROYAL TOP 20

Beyoncé’s RENAISSANCE (Parkwood/Columbia) opens at #1 with a midweek projection of 325k, 200k of which will come from pure album sales. Bad Bunny is once again north of 100k with Un Verano Sin Ti (Rimas). It drops to #2.

The CD configuration of Verano is due Friday, perhaps setting up a battle for #1 the following week.

Also debuting in the Top 20 will be new releases from K-pop artists ATEEZ and ENHYPHEN with THE WORLD EP.1: MOVEMENT (KQ/RCA) and MANIFESTO: DAY 1 (BELIFT LAB/Geffen), respectively, $uicideboy$’s Sing Me a Lullaby, My Sweet Temptation (G59) and Maggie Rogers' Surrender (Capitol).

Now, if you'll excuse us, the refreshing mint juleps we mixed to fend off the oppressive afternoon heat have made us a mite sleepy.
