NEW RELEASES: BABY'S GOT A BIGGIE

Lil Baby’s It’s Only Me (Quality Control/Motown) is a lock for #1 on this week’s HITS Top 50. The follow-up to his RIAA-certified, quadruple-platinum My Turn—the biggest album of 2020—it pulled in around 70m first-day U.S. streams.

By Saturday morning, Baby's new album owned the entire Top 23 on Apple Music. Simultaneously, the Grammy-winning MC posted seven tracks from It's Only Me in the Top 20 at Spotify U.S. and was the #1-most-streamed artist on Spot U.S. Friday.

It's Only Me should open as the seventh- or eighth-biggest debut in 2022 thus far.

Lil Baby (Quality Control/Motown): 185-210k
Red Hot Chili Peppers (Warner): 55-65k
