Travis Scott’s Astroworld ends Drake’s five week run at the top of the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, debuting at No. 1 with 27,000 total consumption units. Named after the closed-down theme park Six Flags AstroWorld located in Houston, Texas, the 17-track album has won praiseworthy reviews, and earns the highest sales on-demand stream totals in the week. This is his first chart-topping album, surpassing the No. 2 peak of his last release, 2016’s Birds in The Trap Sing McKnight. Two songs from the album, “Sicko Mode” and “Stargazing,” enter the Streaming Songs chart at Nos. 2 & 4 respectively.
