This week’s biggest album releases are the soundtracks to “Black Panther” and “Fifty Shades Freed.”

Predictably, those albums rocketed to the top of the US iTunes sales chart upon debuting late Thursday night.

The “Black Panther” soundtrack is #1 on the listing as of press time at 1:55AM ET Friday. “Fifty Shades Freed” follows at #2.

The enduring “Greatest Showman” soundtrack follows at #3, while Justin Timberlake’s “Man Of The Woods” occupies the #4 position.

Brian Fallon’s new “Sleepwalkers” is positioned at #5.

Dashboard Confessional’s new “Crooked Shadows” (#6), Elevation Collective’s new “Evidence” (#7), MGMT’s new “Little Dark Age” (#8), The Wombats’ new “Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life” (#9) and Franz Ferdinand’s “Always Ascending” (#10) complete the Top 10.

Sales projections for this week’s biggest albums should be released in the coming days.
