Encanto S/T Holds At No. 1 For 8th Straight Week

By FYI Staff

Two new releases debut in the top three on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, but the Encanto soundtrack continues its run at the top to spend its eighth straight week at No. 1.


However, for the first time since it reached No. 1, it does not have the highest on-demand stream total for the week. That honour belongs to Lil Durk’s 7220, which enters at No. 2. It is the Chicago rapper’s highest-charting album to date, surpassing the No. 6 peak of The Voice, his previous album released in December 2020.

Swedish rock band Ghost’s Impera debuts at No. 3, earning the highest album sales total for the week. It is the ensemble’s highest-charting album to date, topping the No. 6 peak of their last release, 2018’s Prequelle.

Rounding out the top five is Ed Sheeran’s = which falls two positions to No. 4, and Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album holding at No. 5.

The only other new entry in the top 50 belongs to Brit singer-songwriter Rex Orange County’s Who Cares? at 16, the follow-up to his 2019 No. 3 release Pony.

Neil Young's New Album 'FU##IN' UP' Has Live Recordings from Intimate Toronto Venue The Rivoli

FU##IN' UP, the new album by Neil Young & Crazy Horse, features performances of songs from his 1990 album Ragged Glory, recorded live at Toronto's Rivoli, seemingly during a much-rumoured secret show last November. He'll bring his upcoming tour to Toronto's Budweiser Stage in May, 2024.

Canadian icon Neil Young is adding to his immense discography with a new release this spring, a live album titled FU##IN UP'. The album, featuring Young's longtime band Crazy Horse, consists of nine live recordings from 2023 and is set for a limited edition two-LP release this April, in partnership with Record Store Day. According to the album's credits as noticed by Exclaim!, it was recorded at Toronto's Rivoli club, meaning it likely captures Neil Young & Crazy Horse's secret show at the Rivoli last November.

At that show — supposedly a private birthday party for Canada Goose CEO Dani Reiss — according to reports that generated a lot of buzz when they appeared online days later, Young performed most of his 1990 album Ragged Glory. FU##IN' UP features primarily songs from Ragged Glory, with new titles taken from lyric fragments. ("Over and Over," shared as a single, is now "Broken Circle.") The album features performances from Crazy Horse members Billy Talbot on bass, Ralph Molina on drums, and Nils Lofgren and Micah Nelson on guitar and piano, and Reiss is credited as a presenter.
