CHART STORY:
FIVE FOR BABY

QC/Motown/Capitol star Lil Baby has emerged as the pacesetter for the first half of 2020 as My Turn spends its fourth consecutive week at #1 on the HITS Top 50. The album tops the chart with 67k and has blown past several milestones in doing so: It’s presently the year’s biggest album, with 1.3m+ in total activity; My Turn’s fifth overall week at #1 is the most in 2020; the LP has logged the most weeks at the top of the chart since Post Malone's Hollywood's Bleeding; and it was the first album this year to hit 2 billion streams. 

The biggest bow this week belongs to Alamo/Geffen/Interscope’s Lil Durk, whose deluxe version of Just Cause Y’all Waited 2 reaches a new chart peak, landing at #2 and moving 41k units.

A couple of superstars surge back into the Top 5: Republic’s Post Malone climbs up to #3 with Hollywood’s Bleeding, while Harry StylesFine Line (Columbia) moves up to #5—giving both acts their highest positions since mid-January.

Other top debuts go to LVRN/Interscope’s 6LACK with his 6 PC HOT EP (#12) and Columbia’s HAIM with their third studio album, Women in Music Pt. III (#15).

Streeting this week is the debut studio album from Victor Victor/Republic’s Pop Smoke, along with 87-year-old Willie Nelson’s 70th studio album (Sony Legacy).
