CJAM TOP 30 & SPECIALTY CHARTS // November 9 – 15, 2020

It’s the third week in a row that CJAM’s compilation album CJAM: Live off the floor’ has been #1 on our charts. It (very) narrowly edged out Fuck the Facts new record ‘Pleine Noirceur’ – which was also top of the Loud charts this week. Teenager, PUP, and Actress round out the top 5, with Detroit artist Actress’ ‘Karma & Desire’ also being at the top of the Electronic charts.
