The top debut of the week belongs to The Chicks’ Gaslighter, at No. 3, picking up the highest album sales total for the week. It is the group’s first studio album since 2006’s Taking the Long Way spent four weeks at No. 1. Gaslighter is their third top-three album.

The cast record for Hamilton drops one position, to 4, and Harry Styles’ Fine Line falls one spot to 5, picking up the highest digital song download total for the week. The Weeknd's After Hours drops to 6, the first week that the album has not been in the weekly top five.

Oliver Tree’s Ugly Is Beautiful debuts at 47; it’s his first charted album to date.
