The album has achieved the highest audio-on-demand streams and digital song download totals for the week; meantime, his single, “In My Feelings,” remains at No. 1 on both the Streaming and Digital Songs charts.

Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys and XXXtentacion’s ? hold at 2 and 3 respectively.

The soundtrack to the movie “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” bullets  66-4 with a 262% consumption increase.

The album is this week’s top-selling title, supplanting Drake’s Scorpion. It is the highest charting soundtrack album since “Black Panther” debuted at No. 1 in February. The soundtrack to the first “Mamma Mia” film, which reached No. 1 in 2008, rockets 182-29 with a 181% consumption increase. Abba’s Gold best-of compilation vaults 76-15 with a 107% consumption gain.

Karan Aujla & DIVINE Debut in Top 25 on Billboard Canadian Albums Chart

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE land the No. 22 spot on this week's Canadian Albums chart with their new collaborative release, 'Street Dreams.' On the Canadian Hot 100, Beyoncé's "Texas Hold 'Em" ascends to No. 1, while Canadian pop artist Preston Pablo makes a debut.

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE are making moves together on Billboard's Canadian Albums chart this week, with their collaborative project, Street Dreams, debuting in the No. 22 spot.

The seven-track album, released Feb. 16, blends harder hip-hop and smooth R&B pop, the latter shining through especially on the Jonita Gandhi-assisted "Yaad." It's not Aujla's highest spot on the Albums chart — he reached No. 5 in 2023 with Making Memories, his collaboration with Canadian Punjabi artist Ikky — but it gives him some momentum going into his upcoming performance at the Juno Awards on Mar. 24, where he's nominated for TikTok Juno fan choice and breakthrough artist.
