Drake’s For All the Dogs (OVO) and Morgan Wallen’s One Thing at a Time (Big Loud/Mercury) are #3 and #4, respectively, while scorching-hot Best New Artist nominee Noah Kahan leaps to #8 with Stick Season (Mercury) following his electrifying performance on Saturday Night Live.

Michael Bublé’s Christmas (Reprise) and Nat King Cole’s Christmas Song (Capitol) lead holiday titles, with a presence in the Top 10. Seasonal juggernauts Mariah Carey, Pentatonix, Phil Spector and the Vince Guaraldi Trio hang stockings in the Top 20.
