By FYI Staff

Drake’s Certified Lover Boy spends its second straight week at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, and again achieving the highest on-demand streams total for the week.


Kanye West’s Donda, The Kid Laroi’s F*ck Love and Doja Cat’s Planet Her hold their positions from last week at Nos. 2 through 4 respectively.

The top new entry this week belongs to Baby Keem’s debut full-length studio album, The Melodic Blue, at 5. This is the American rapper’s first charted album.

Metallica’s multi-platinum self-titled 1991 release moves 113-8, thanks to the 30th anniversary remastered versions of the album. It is the highest chart peak for the album, which was first released in the pre-Canada SoundScan era. The new covers' album, The Metallica Blacklist, featuring songs from the 1991 album interpreted by over 50 different artists, debuts at No. 44.

Kacey Musgraves’ Star-Crossed debuts at 9. It is her second top ten album and first since Pageant Material reached No. 6 in 2015. It surpasses the No. 11 peak of her last album, 2018’s Golden Hour.

The other new entry to land inside the top 50 is Colombian singer-songwriter and rapper J Balvin’s Jose, at 26.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
