Rise Against’s new album “Nowhere Generation” arrived at midnight late Thursday/early Friday.
By press time at 1AM ET, it had already reached #1 on the all-genre US iTunes album sales chart.
“Nowhere Generation” seized the throne from Olivia Rodrigo’s smash “SOUR.” The Rodrigo album now sits at #2 on the chart.
Lloyd Banks’ new “The Course Of The Inevitable” follows at #3, ahead of the late DMX’s “Exodus” at #4. Lil Baby & Lil Durk’s just-released “The Voice Of The Heroes” follows at #5 on the chart.
The iTunes album sales chart tends to be very volatile on Friday morning, so any of the aforementioned rankings could shift in the coming hours.
