By FYI Staff

Adele’s 30 debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, achieving a sweep of highest album sales, on-demand streams and digital song sales for the week. It is her third consecutive chart-topping album. 30 surpasses Drake’s 2018 album Scorpion for the highest one-week consumption unit total since MRC Data began factoring in streams and digital song sales with album sales in 2016 and it has the highest one-week album sales since P!nk’s Beautiful Trauma in November 2017. The two other No. 1 albums from Adele are in the top 30 this week, with 25 at 22 and 21 at 27.
