TOP 50: TWO RODS, DOJA'S DEBUT AND ZACH'S FLURRY

Geffen's Olivia Rodrigo returns to #1 on the HITS Top 50 with GUTS, which posts 90k in its third week. The pop phenom's sophomore set is now approaching 700k in activity for the year. Last week's chart-topper, Alamo's Rod Wave, slides to #2 with Nostalgia, earning 84k in its second week.

Kemosabe/RCA's Doja Cat scores the top debut with her rap album, Scarlet. With 69k, her fourth full-length earns the biggest opening for an album by a female rap artist this year.

Warner wild card Zach Bryan delivered another surprise for his fans with a brand new EP, Boys of Faith, which premieres at #7 with 47k. The five-track project arrives just four weeks after Zach Bryan, holding steady at #5. The Oklahoman's American Heartbreak, meanwhile, maintains its presence in the Top 20.

Galactic/Republic's Lil Tecca likewise achieves a Top 20 bow, with TEC, the fourth project from the 21-year-old rapper, at #11.

Streeting this week are new projects by Young Money's Lil Wayne, WMG's Ed Sheeran, Universal Music Latino's Feid, Kemosabe/RCA/Sony Latin's Becky G, Monument's Walker Hayes, Capitol's Mae Muller, BBR's Dustin Lynch and Interscope's CMG mixtape.

We weren't invited to the Sphere grand opening, but thanks to our own advanced technology, we were able to have potato balls delivered from Porto's. See the full chart here.
