Drake Racks Up His 11th No. 1 Album

By FYI Staff

This week's chart report was delayed at source due to reporting issues.


Drake’s Certified Lover Boy debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, earning the highest one-week album consumption unit and on-demand stream total in 2021. With 54,000 total consumption units and 65 million on-demand streams, it is the second-highest one-week totals to date for both metrics, only trailing his 2018 release Scorpion. It is his 11th chart-topping album.

Last week’s No. 1 album, Kanye West’s Donda, drops to 2nd place, The Kid Laroi’s F*ck Love falls one position, to 3, and Doja Cat’s Planet Her holds at 4.

Iron Maiden’s Senjutsu debuts at 5, scoring the highest album sales total for the week. It is the Brit band’s first studio album since 2015’s The Book Of Souls peaked at No. 2.

Imagine Dragons’ Mercury-Act 1 debuts at 8. It is their follow-up to the No. 1 Origins in 2018.

Abba’s Gold-Greatest Hits rockets 39-15, matching the album’s highest chart peak, reached in August 2018.

One other new album enters the top 50 as the S/T to the new Marvel film Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings lands at No. 47.
