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.

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.
