THIS CHART STORY HAS STAR POWER

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack (Interscope) spends another week at #1 on the HITS Top 50 Chart, tacking on 106k. The highest-charting debut comes from Freebandz/Epic’s Future and Grade A/Interscope’s Juice WRLD, whose collaborative WRLD on Drugs bows at #2 with 98k.

Two new rock records also arrive in the Top 5 this week. Greta Van Fleet’s Anthem of the Peaceful Army (Lava/Republic) appears at #3 with 82k, while Disturbed’s Evolution (Reprise) snags 71k, enough to land at #4.   

Other noteworthy debuts include Khalid’s Suncity (Right Hand/RCA) and Lil Yachty’s Nuthin’ 2 Prove (QC/Motown/Capitol), which enter at #8 and #12 with approximately 48k and 40k, respectively.

And following an appearance on Ellen, Centricity’s Lauren Daigle–who just signed a shiny new deal with Doug Morris12Tone—sees her buzzworthy Look Up Child hop back into the Top 20. The album originally bowed Top 3 in mid-September.
