CHART STORY:
#1 A LA MODE (UPDATE)

21 Savage & Metro Boomin’s collaboration album, Savage Mode II (Boominati/Republic/Slaughter Gang/Epic), opens at #1 on the HITS Top 50 with 173k. The duo racked up 200m+ streams for their highly anticipated sequel and posted the biggest first-week total ever for either act as a lead artist.

K-Pop sensations BLACKPINK follow at #2 with their debut full-length, THE ALBUM (YG/Interscope)—one of four IGA titles in the Top 10. The group earns the biggest first week ever for a female K-Pop act with 132k. Driven by their diehard fans, aka “Blinks,” sales accounted for 100k of the total.

Def Jam’s YG snags the #4 spot in late-breaking action with My Life 4Hunnid, which racked up nearly 63k, while RCA’s R&B breakthrough Bryson Tiller lands a Top 5 bow with A N N I V E R S A R Y, notching 59k, good for #5 . Last week’s #1, Machine Gun Kelly, slides to #6 with Tickets to My Downfall (Bad Boy/Interscope), while Interscope’s LANY cracks the Top 10.

12Tone has two acts in the Top 15: Joji, who moves to #13 in his second week with Nectar (88rising), and the iconic Dolly Parton with the yuletide set A Holly Dolly Christmas.

Following a viral TikTok video featuring “Dreams,” Ocean Spray and good vibes, Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours (Warner) has returned to the upper reaches of the chart. It moves up to #16, a 41% spike.

With the music community and fans across the globe honoring guitar hero Eddie Van Halen's passing earlier this week, Van Halen's Best of, Vol. 1 (Warner) re-enters at #40 and their self-titled debut (also Warner) re-enters at #49.

Streeting this week are new projects from EMI Nashville’s Brothers Osborne, Interscope’s Blocboy JB and TDE’s REASON and special reissues from Sony Legacy’s Sade and Warner’s Linkin Park.
