NEW RELEASES: A 5-STAR RATING FOR REPUBLIC (UPDATE)

UPDATE: Stray Kids5-Star (JYP/Imperial/Republic) will open at #1 in the 200-225k range, Morgan Wallen’s One Thing at a Time (Big Loud/Mercury/Republic) will remain in the runner-up position and ENHYPEN’s Dark Blood (BELIFT LAB/Geffen) will rumble with Taylor Swift’s Midnights (Republic) for third place.

This week's Top 10 should see the entry of at least five new titles.

Stray Kids (JYP/Imperial/Republic): 200-225k
ENHYPEN (BELIFT LAB/Geffen): 80-90k
Jelly Roll (Stoney Creek/Broken Bow): 60-65k
Foo Fighters (Roswell/RCA): 58-63k
Metro Boomin Presents Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Republic):
48-53k
Moneybagg Yo (CMG/N-Less/Interscope): 45-50k
Avenged Sevenfold (Warner): 25-30k
Toosii (South Coast/Capitol): 20-23k


Republic will extend its rule atop the album chart to 14 consecutive weeks with another big #1, this time from Stray Kids' 5-Star (JYP/Imperial).

The South Korean octet, which last topped the chart in October with EP Maxident, is on pace for an opening in the range of 190-220k.

In a similarly impressive run, we've managed to skip the gym for 14 consecutive weeks. It's called "consistency"; look it up.
