KHALED HAS
ANOTHA #1

DJ Khaled has lived up to his catchphrase and dropped “Anotha One” with his star-studded Khaled Khaled (We The Best/Epic). Aided by some of music’s hottest acts, including Drake, Lil Baby, Post Malone, H.E.R., Justin Bieber and Jay-Z, Khaled opens at #1 on the HITS Top 50 chart with 95k.

A pair of Interscope rappers—and previous chart-toppers—hold firm inside the Top 10: Moneybagg Yo’s A Gangsta’s Pain (CMG/N-Less) moves to #2 and Rod Wave’s SoulFly (Alamo/Geffen) remains locked in at #6 in its sixth week.

Valory/BMLG’s Thomas Rhett scores the week’s second-biggest bow with 31k+ for Country Again (Side A), good for #10. Rock legends The Grateful Dead truck on in at #16 with Dave’s Picks Vol. 38 (Grateful Dead/Rhino).

Greatest gainers include The Kid LAROI’s F*ck Love (Columbia; +22%), boosted by a remix of “Without You” featuring new labelmate Miley Cyrus, and Billie Eilish’s WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? (Darkroom/Interscope; +13%), which spiked following the drop of her new single and an Internet-breaking Vogue campaign.

Streeting this week are new projects from South Coast/Capitol’s Toosii, Crush’s Weezer, Warner’s Bebe Rexha, Mom+Pop’s Ashe, Rule #1/Interscope’s Lil Poppa and a deluxe edition of Kenny Chensey’s 2020 #1, Here and Now (Blue Chair/Warner Music Nashville).

Now if you’ll pardon us, we need to strap on the tequila helmet.
