Country star Morgan Wallen’s third album, One Thing at a Time leads the Top 50 YTD Albums chart with more than 5m total streams since its March release. SZA’s SOS (TDE/RCA) and Taylor Swift’s Midnights (Republic) follow at #2 and #3, respectively.

Interestingly, Morgan Wallen and Taylor Swift occupy 4 of the top 5 spots on the chart. Moreover, Taylor has two more albums in the top 10 — Lover at #6 and Speak Now (Taylor’s version) at #8. Travis Scott and Metro Boomin are the only two rap albums in the top 10 this year.
