“Melodrama,” Lorde’s eagerly awaited sophomore album, launched on the US iTunes store late Thursday night.

It quickly — and predictably — shot to #1 on the all-genre album sales chart.

There it sits as of press time at 1:35AM ET.

New releases also occupy the next several slots on the chart.

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit’s new “The Nashville Sound” is #2 on the listing, while Royal Blood’s new “How Did We Get So Dark?” is #3.

Nickelback’s new “Feed The Machine” and 2 Chainz’ new “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” follow at #4 and #5, respectively.

Fleet Foxes’ new “The Crack-Up” (#6), Jeff Williams’ new “RWBY, Vol. 4” soundtrack and score (#7), and Portugal. The Man’s “Woodstock” (#8) follow.

SZA’s “Ctrl,” the highest ranking holdover album, is currently #9 on the listing. “H.E.R., Vol. 2,” the new release from H.E.R., follows at #10.
