CHART FINAL: GUTS AND GLORY

Olivia Rodrigo's sophomore set, GUTS (Geffen), scores a huge #1 bow on this week's HITS Top 50 with 302k+.

The ravishingly reviewed album's superlative performance has been supercharged by two big streaming hits, "vampire" and "bad idea right?"

But O-Rod's triumph isn't the only great news for Geffen this week; the label also has the #2 record, likewise a debut, courtesy of K-pop heartthrob and erstwhile BTS member V, who racks up 105k+ in his opening frame.

Hickman Holler/RCA's Tyler Childers, meanwhile, nabs an impressive Top 10 bow, amassing 38k+ for the rapturously received Rustin' in the Rain.

The week's other Top 20 debut comes from jazz unicorn Laufey, whose Bewitched (AWAL) lands with nearly 24k.

Warner's Zach Bryan sits at #3 with a mighty 97k, followed in the Top 10 by chart habitués Morgan Wallen, Travis Scott, SZA, Taylor Swift, Peso Pluma and the Barbie ST.

In a voluminous week for new music, the latest releases include Alamo's Rod Wave, EMI Nashville's Brothers Osborne, DLG/Island's Demi Lovato, Warner Nashville's Dan + Shay, Sony Legacy's Willie Nelson, Swims/Warner's Teddy Swims, Epic/Sing It Loud's Madison Beer and Dead Oceans' Mitski. Phew!

Now, if you'll excuse us, this coffee tastes unpleasantly free of rum.
