Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding returns to number one on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, with over 8,000 total consumption units, picking up the highest audio-on-demand streams and digital song downloads total for the week. It is the album’s seventh week at the top of the chart, the most for any album so far in 2019.


Last week’s No. 1 album, Kanye West’s Jesus Is King, drops to No. 2.

The top debut of the week belongs to Montreal’s Half Moon Run, whose latest album, A Blemish In The Great Light, lands at 3, with the highest album sales total of the week. It is their highest-charting album to date, surpassing the No. 4 peak of their last release, 2015’s Sun Leads Me On.

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.
