TOP 50: A SWIFT REPEAT AND A GOLDEN BOW

Republic's Taylor Swift repeats at #1 on the HITS Top 50 with 1989 (Taylor's Version). The album, which opened with the biggest week of the year and of Swift's career, moves 240k in its second week.

BTS' Jung Kook earns the week's top bow with his debut album, Golden (BIGHIT/Geffen). The set enters north of 200k, which makes Golden the biggest opening to date by a K-pop solo artist.

Other top entries go to the late Jimmy Buffett's Equal Strain of all Parts (Mailboat/Sun Records) at #6, Jason Aldean's Highway Desperado (BBR/BMG) at #18 and Cody Johnson's Leather (Cojo/Warner Nashville) at #19.

Drake, Morgan Wallen and Bad Bunny round out the Top 5.

Streeting this week are new titles by Mercury Nashville's Chris Stapleton, Columbia's The Kid LAROI, Motown's NBA YoungBoy, Maybach/gamma.'s Meek Mill & Rick Ross, Motown's Brandy, SM/Warner's aespa and Arista's Lola Brooke and reissues from The Beatles.
