Drake’s Certified Lover Boy remains No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart for the fifth straight week, once again picking up the highest on-demand streams for the week.


Lil Nas X’s Montero holds at 2, The Kid Laroi’s F*ck Love stays at 3 and Doja Cat’s Planet Her remains at 4.

The top debut of the week belongs to Meek Mill’s Expensive Pain at 5. It is his first release since Championships reached No. 1 in November 2018.

With the release of a new vinyl edition of the album, Taylor Swift’s Fearless (Taylor’s Version) rockets 102-9, earning the highest album sales total for the week.

Two more new releases debut in the top 50, with Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga’s Love for Sale at 33, and Brandi Carlile’s In These Silent Days at 43.

Mario Pelchat’s Comme Un Premier Rendez-Vous bullets 71-27 with the second-highest album sales total of the week.

With all the attention around the announcement of a new Adele single, her previous two albums make big gains on the chart, with 25  rocketing 143-67 and 21 bulleting 150-85.

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.
