Four recent albums—ARIANA GRANDE's Yours Truly [Republic Records], JACK JOHNSON's From Here to Now to You [Brushfire/Republic Records], Drake's Nothing Was The Same [Young Money Entertainment/Cash Money/Republic Records], and Pearl Jam's Lightning Bolt [Monkeywrench/Republic Records]—debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release.

Following that milestone, five of the label's albums—LORDE's Pure Heroine [LAVA/Republic Records], DJ KHALED's Suffering From Success [We The Best Music Group/Cash Money Records/Republic Records], AFI's Burials [Republic Records], Lightning Bolt, and Nothing Was the Same—are currently holding strong in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200. The label has successfully occupied half of the Top 10.

Recently, REPUBLIC RECORDS has yielded numerous #1 singles and albums. The Weeknd's sophomore set Kiss Land [XO/Republic Records] landed at #1 on Billboard's Top R&B Albums Chart, while Pure Heroine bowed at #1 on Billboard's Top Rock Albums Chart and The Avett Brothers' Magpie and the Dandelion[American/Republic Records] entered at #1 on Billboard's Top Folk Albums Chart. In total, that makes for seven #1 albums across multiple charts in less than eight week's time.

That success also continues at radio as well. LORDE's ubiquitous smash "Royals" has spent four weeks at #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart, while also clinching #1 at Hot AC, Top 40, AAA, and ALT. The song sees the 16-year-old New Zealand phenom become the youngest artist to top the Hot 100 since 1986. Meanwhile, it set a new record for "Longest #1 at Alternative Radio by a Female Artist" with a stunning seven weeks at the top. Young Money/Cash Money' DRAKE's "Hold On, We're Going Home" continues to hold on strong at #1 on Rhythm/Urban, while PEARL JAM's elegant ballad "Sirens" sits at #1 at AAA.
