TOP 20: REPUBLIC'S RAMPAGE

Morgan Wallen's Dangerous: The Double Album (Big Loud/Republic) extends its run at #1, making it the first country album to spend its first three weeks on top since Taylor Swift's Red in 2012. Republic should score at least four of the Top 5 with Pop Smoke, Taylor and The Weeknd seemingly locked in, achieving what industry statisticians describe as a "holyfuckingshit" kind of week. This means the label has the #1 album overall and the #1 sets in country, hip-hop, singer/songwriter R&B and pop genres. Lil Durk's The Voice (Alamo/Geffen/Interscope) and Ariana Grande's Positions (Republic) appear in a tight race for #5. Should Grande win, that would give Republic the entire Top 5 on Friday's HITS Top 50. In any case, Monte Lipman is pouring hand sanitizer over his head and pretending it's champagne.

In impeachment news, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is forcing a vote on whether or not Senators "think" the impeachment of former President Trump is unconstitutional. Because, you know, nobody feels like looking it up.
