Adele's Catalogue Is On Fire, But Drake Rules Roost For 6th Week

By FYI Staff

Drake’s Certified Lover Boy spends its sixth straight week at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, and is the only album this week to have over ten million on-demand streams. It surpasses his 2018 Scorpion to become his second longest running No. 1 album to date. Only his 2016 release, Views, has spent more time at the top of the chart, with 12 non-consecutive weeks.


Lil Nas X’s Montero remains at No. 2. With the release of a deluxe edition, Justin Bieber’s former No. 1 album Justice bullets 12-3, and The Kid Laroi’s F*ck Love and Doja Cat’s Planet Her both fall one position, to Nos. 4 and 5 respectively.

The top new entry of the week belongs to American rapper Don Toliver’s Life as A Don, at No. 6. It is his highest charting album as a solo artist, surpassing the No. 7 peak of his debut album Heaven or Hell in March 2020. He was a member of the collective JackBoys that scored a No. 1 album in January 2020.

The only other new entry in the top 50 belongs to Vancouver rapper bbno$’s Eat Ya Veggies at No. 36, his highest charting album to date.

Adele’s catalogue continues to post consumption increases in anticipation of her upcoming new 30 album release in November. 25 blasts 67-28, 21 skips 85-39, and 19 re-enters the chart at No. 191.

Karan Aujla & DIVINE Debut in Top 25 on Billboard Canadian Albums Chart

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE land the No. 22 spot on this week's Canadian Albums chart with their new collaborative release, 'Street Dreams.' On the Canadian Hot 100, Beyoncé's "Texas Hold 'Em" ascends to No. 1, while Canadian pop artist Preston Pablo makes a debut.

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE are making moves together on Billboard's Canadian Albums chart this week, with their collaborative project, Street Dreams, debuting in the No. 22 spot.

The seven-track album, released Feb. 16, blends harder hip-hop and smooth R&B pop, the latter shining through especially on the Jonita Gandhi-assisted "Yaad." It's not Aujla's highest spot on the Albums chart — he reached No. 5 in 2023 with Making Memories, his collaboration with Canadian Punjabi artist Ikky — but it gives him some momentum going into his upcoming performance at the Juno Awards on Mar. 24, where he's nominated for TikTok Juno fan choice and breakthrough artist.
