TOP 50: IT'S TIME TO ROCK

Columbia's blink-182 logs the year's first #1 rock album on the HITS Top 50 with the debut of ONE MORE TIME..., which opens with 118.6k. It's the first rock set to premiere at #1 since Red Hot Chili Peppers' Unlimited Love in April of 2022.

Only 1.5k units separate the SoCal pop-punk vets from #2 DrakeFor All the Dogs (OVO/Republic) moves 117k in its third week.

Rock legends The Rolling Stones enter at #4 with Hackney Diamonds (Geffen), which topped the U.K. charts its opening week. Bad Bunny and Morgan Wallen round out the Top 5 at #3 and #5, respectively.

Republic's Taylor Swift, meanwhile, continues her seemingly endless hot streak, landing eight albums in the Top 30, supercharged by her blockbuster concert film and the just-released 1989 (Taylor's Version). Lover and Midnights are in the Top 10.

And Mexican American corridos breakout Fuerza Regida (Rancho Humilde/Street Mob/Sony Latin) scores a Top 15 bow with Pa Las Baby's y Belikeada.

As alluded to above, streeting this week is Swift's 1989 (TV). It could do well. See the full chart here.
