HEROES AND HEARTS

Although its curators would prefer you didn't call it a soundtrack, the Black Panther album—crafted by Kendrick Lamar, Top Dawg and team to accompany the wildly anticipated Marvel blockbuster, which hits theaters in one week—has arrived, in tandem with an official ST (for the latest steamy installment in the Fifty Shades franchise).

Black Panther (TDE/Aftermath/Interscope) 110-120k total activity, 35-40k album
50 Shades Freed (Republic) 50-60k, 30-40k

As you probably know by now, Lamar performs on five of the Panther album's 14 tracks; other participants in the superhero sonics include The Weeknd, SZA, ScHoolboy Q, 2 Chainz, Khalid, Swae Lee, Jay Rock and Vince Staples. Panther is the #1 album at Apple Music and iTunes; seven tracks are currently in the Apple Music Top 10 and five in the Spotify Top 10 (with three in the Top 5). You can check it out below.
