By FYI Staff

There is no change at the top of the Billboard Canadian Albums chart this week, as the Encanto soundtrack spends its 3rd straight week at No. 1, earning the highest on-demand streams and digital song download totals for the week.


The Weeknd’s Dawn Fm holds at No. 2, Ed Sheeran’s = nudges up 6-3, Adele’s 30 remains at No. 4 and Gunna’s Ds4ever falls to No. 5.

The top debut of the week belongs to Korn’s Requiem at 26, picking up the highest album sales total for the week. It is the band’s follow-up to the No. 11 peak of 2019’s The Nothing.

The Billboard Canada FYI Bulletin: Beyoncé Country Hit A Win For Canadian Songwriters

Also in this week's roundup of industry news: Kayla Diamond launches her own boutique imprint, SOCAN names an ombudsman, and time's running out for noms for this year's Rosalie Award honouring trailblazing women in broadcasting.

Beyoncé becomes the first Black woman to top Billboard’s Country Songs chart with “Texas Hold ‘Em” and it has gone to No. 1 on iTunes in 14 different countries and counting. There are some surprising connections. The song is co-written and co-produced by Ontario-born writer/producer Nathan Ferraro, whose previous collaborations include working with Lady Gaga, Carly Rae Jepsen, Bear Mountain, RALPH, Shawn Hook, Alyssa Reid, Jessie Reyez, Lowell and Tyler Shaw.

In fact, the song has deep Canadian origins. Two other Canadian songwriters participated in this runaway hit: Megan Bülow (who records and performs as bülow) as and Elizabeth "Lowell" Boland (a.k.a. Lowell), with Ferraro co-producing the track with Killah B and Beyoncé.
