NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of May 5, 2017

Looking for “Room” at the top.

It’s a logical fight between a traveller and a logician this week, as two big releases attempt to steal the #1 spot away from Kendrick Lamar‘s hot set. Can one of them pull it off? Here’s all the action from this week’s schedule:

CHRIS STAPLETON – From A Room: Volume 1 (iTunes)
Stapleton’s sophomore album follows 2015’s Traveller, which garnered universal acclaim and a number of awards. It also ranked at #4 on the list of 2016’s best-selling albums here in the States. Lead single “Either Way”, which wasn’t released prior to the album in an unusual move, impacts at Country radio on Monday. It’s pretty clear that this will be a contender for #1, but it’ll have to compete with…

LOGIC – Everybody (iTunes)
The third studio album for this Maryland rapper is also looking at a notable first week, thanks to a lot of positive buzz and a nice list of collaborators. Of course, his first two albums reached the top five in the last few years, but his following continues to expand. “1-800-273-8255”, both the radio single and the number for the Suicide Prevention Hotline, is headed to the Rhythmic format.
