The Kid Laroi scores his first chart-topping album as a new deluxe edition of his 2020 debut release F*ck Love slides 3-1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, picking up the highest on-demand streams and digital song downloads for the week. This is the second deluxe edition for the album, and includes the most streamed song in the country, Stay, a duet with Justin Bieber.


Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour holds at No. 2 and surpasses Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album as the most consumed album so far in 2021. Doja Cat’s Planet Her remains at No. 3; last week’s No. 1 album, Pop Smoke’s Faith, falls to 4th place, and Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia edges 6-5.

The top new entry this week belongs to Brit rapper/actor Dave’s We’re All Alone in This Together at No. 18. It is his first charting release after his debut 2019 album Psychodrama failed to chart.

Leon Bridges’ Gold-Diggers Sound comes in at No. 51, the follow-up to his No. 3, 2018 release Good Thing.

The Billboard Canada FYI Bulletin: Beyoncé Country Hit A Win For Canadian Songwriters

Also in this week's roundup of industry news: Kayla Diamond launches her own boutique imprint, SOCAN names an ombudsman, and time's running out for noms for this year's Rosalie Award honouring trailblazing women in broadcasting.

Beyoncé becomes the first Black woman to top Billboard’s Country Songs chart with “Texas Hold ‘Em” and it has gone to No. 1 on iTunes in 14 different countries and counting. There are some surprising connections. The song is co-written and co-produced by Ontario-born writer/producer Nathan Ferraro, whose previous collaborations include working with Lady Gaga, Carly Rae Jepsen, Bear Mountain, RALPH, Shawn Hook, Alyssa Reid, Jessie Reyez, Lowell and Tyler Shaw.

In fact, the song has deep Canadian origins. Two other Canadian songwriters participated in this runaway hit: Megan Bülow (who records and performs as bülow) as and Elizabeth "Lowell" Boland (a.k.a. Lowell), with Ferraro co-producing the track with Killah B and Beyoncé.
