RaeLynn debuted in seventh with her EP "Me." Chase Rice jumped eight to eighth with "Ignite the Night. Code Canada and the Departed debuted in ninth with "Hippielovepunk." The rest of the op 25 did not show much movement.

The Earls of Leicester were third with their self-titled release. The Devil Makes Three were fourth with "I'm a Stranger Here." The Isaac's "The Living Years" were fifth.
