Tracks from Frank Ocean’s “Blonde” were not available for purchase this past week.

They did, however, receive ample streaming activity (and, in some cases, nominal radio exposure). That activity allows several to debut on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

“Nikes,” which debuts at #79, is actually the week’s highest ranking new entry. Ocean’s album is also represented by “Ivy” (#80), “Pink + White” (#84), “Solo” (#96), and “Nights” (#98).

This week’s other debuts include DJ Esco’s “Too Much Sauce (featuring Future & Lil Uzi Vert)” (#94), Shawn Mendes’ “Mercy” (#95), William Michael Morgan’s “I Met A Girl” (#99), and Luke Bryan’s “Move” (#100).
