NEW RELEASES: SOS ANSWERS THE CALL

The five-year wait for SZA's sophomore album appears to have been worth it as SOS (TDE/RCA) dominated DSPs its opening day.

The 23-track LP should land at #1 on this week’s HITS Top 50; after one full day of sales and streams, we’re projecting a first-week total in the 275-300k range. First-day streams approached 100m in the U.S., with over 350m streams projected by week’s end. This sets SOS up to be the sixth- or seventh-biggest debut of 2022.

We imagine you've already about the R&B star's tour announcement; she's also seizing the narrative with a splashy Postmates holiday promotion.

In international news, remember not to use any French phrases in your conversations with English people.
