A THANKFUL TOP 20

Republic will continue its chart dominance as Taylor Swift and Drake & 21 Savage lock down the top two spots on the HITS Top 50 for another week. The House of Lipman also places four tracks in the Top 7 as Morgan Wallen and The Weeknd remain steady.

Michael Jackson’s Thriller marks the 40th anniversary of its original, 11/30/82 release with a special reissue, while Alamo's Rod Wave drops an EP along with new new albums from Roddy Ricch (Atlantic) and Disturbed (Reprise) that will debut in the 30-35k range. Moreover, Christmas titles from Mariah Carey (Columbia), Nat King Cole (Capitol) and the Vince Guaraldi Trio (Concord) are starting their annual run up the chart. Rightsholders, we need hardly add, are giving thanks for yuletide catalog.

Outside the Top 20, new debuts this week include Nickelback’s Get Rollin’ (BMG)—expected to open around 20k—and Dermot Kennedy’s Sonder (Interscope), which is currently leading the race for #1 across the pond per Official Charts, trending toward 12.5k.
