Mimi and Michael Bublé Topped the Charts In Christmas Week

Step aside, Mimi. Michael  Bublé's seasonal best-seller held the coveted No. 1 spot as the top-performing album in Christmas week - but Mariah had her wish come true, too.

Mimi and Michael Bublé Topped the Charts In Christmas Week

By FYI Staff

Michael Bublé's Christmas jumped to No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart for the seventh non-consecutive week, scoring the highest audio-on-demand stream total for the week with nearly 14 million. It is the album’s second straight year that the 2011 release has reached the summit. It is the eighth album from a Canadian artist to score a chart-topping album in 2019, compared to six in 2018.


The previous week’s No. 1 album, Harry Styles’ Fine Line, dropped to 2nd place over Christmas week, Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding held at 3, Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go moved 10-4 and Mariah Carey’s Merry Christmas popped 17-5 as her classic holiday song All I Want For Christmas Is You moved to No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart.

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.
