Drake’s Certified Lover Boy remains at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart for the third consecutive week, once again picking up the highest on-demand streams for the week. It is his longest-running chart-topping album since Views spent 12 non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 in 2016.


Lil Nas X’s first full-length album, Montero, debuts at No. 2 with the highest album sales and digital song sales and the second-highest on-demand stream total for the week. His EP 7 spent two weeks at No. 1 in 2019.
