HITS Daily Double


Monte’s army snagged a stunning 32% of the market for the week ending 12/17. That’s what happens when you have the Top 3 albums, with Taylor’s twin smashes sandwiching Kid Cudi’s debut for a grand total of 607,566 combined units. Top 10 weeks for Pop Smoke and Ariana provide the icing on the cake—or pie, in this case.

Republic’s explosion, along with an 11% assist from IGA, powered UMG to 60% in the Big Three competition.

Our Top 100 Weekly Marketshare Chart, which is determined by the number and placement of each label’s releases in that week’s Top 100, shows the relative performance of the major labels by percentage of the top tier of the overall business.

The new chart reveals the labels making the biggest impact during that particular seven-day period—meaning the order of battle could differ dramatically from one week to the next, particularly when superstar releases hit the market, as the latest chart dramatically demonstrates.
