Coeur De Pirate Has This Week's Best-Selling Album

Kanye has the top scoring album receipts with massive streaming numbers, but it's Canada's own Beatrice Martin who wins over the purse strings of her fans with a new album that takes its title from a sign she saw planted in a patch of grass in Paris.

Coeur De Pirate Has This Week's Best-Selling Album

By FYI Staff

Kanye West’s Ye debuts at number one on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart this week with 14,000 total consumption units and the second highest album sales and On-Demand stream totals. This is his sixth chart-topping album and first since 2013’s Yeezus. It surpasses the No. 6 peak of his last album, 2016’s The Life Of Pablo, which bullets 171-90 this week with a 57% consumption increase.


Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys holds at 2 with the highest on-demand stream total for the week, and Shawn Mendes’ self-titled album falls, from first place to 3.

Coeur De Pirate’s En Cas De Tempete Ce Jardin Sera Ferme (translated as ‘During this storm the garden will be closed’) debuts at 4, achieving the highest album sales total in the week. This is Béatrice Martin’s fourth straight album to debut in the top five and falls just shy of the No. 2 peak of her last two releases, most recently the 2015 Roses.

Swedish heavy metal band Ghost B.C.’s Prequelle debuts at 6, their highest charting album to date. It surpasses the No. 7 peak of their last album, 2016’s Popestar.

Maroon 5’s Red Pill Blues rockets 32-8 in its 31st week on the chart, picking up a 142% consumption increase. Their new single, “Girls Like You,” jumps to No. 1 on both the Streaming and Digital Songs charts, their sixth digital chart-topper and second streaming No. 1. It is also the highest chart peak for the album since it debuted at No. 2 in November.

In its 52nd week on the chart, Luke Combs’ This One’s for You vaults 59-10 with a 218% consumption increase, thanks to a new deluxe version of the album. The album’s highest previous peak was 35 in its debut week last June.

Will Butler on Writing the Tony-Nominated Music for ‘Stereophonic’: ‘It Was Like a Thousand-Piece Puzzle With 200 Pieces Missing’

The former Arcade Fire member has two nominations for his stunning songs, written for a fictional (but very believable) rock band onstage.

Will Butler’s first meeting with playwright David Adjmi was fairly open-ended: a friend had told Butler that Adjmi — a fan of Arcade Fire, the band Butler was in at the time — was working on a play about a band and that Butler could “write the music or just consult or whatever.”

But from their first sit-down at a diner near New York’s theatre district, Adjmi’s vision was “instantly recognizable” to Butler: “Like, oh, it’s a demo — it’s like a transcendental thing that they can never recapture. You have things falling apart because the headphones sound bad, you have people yelling at each other over music but it’s because of how their dad treated them,” he recalls with a laugh.
