By FYI Staff

Taylor Swift’s folklore debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart with 47,000 total consumption units and earning the highest album sales, on-demand streams and digital songs for the week. It is her seventh chart-topping album, all of which have debuted at the No. 1 position. It is the second-highest one-week consumption total so far in 2020, surpassed only by The Weeknd’s After Hours in its first week of release in late March. It is also the highest one-week consumption total for a female artist since Celine Dion’s Courage in November 2019. Her catalogue also posts chart gains, including her last album, Lover, moving 25-17, and 1989 bulleting 98-68.


Last week’s No. 1 album, Pop Smoke’s Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon, drops to No. 2 and Juice WRLD’s Legends Never Die falls to No. 3.

Logic’s No Pressure debuts at 4. It is his fifth top-five album and follows up the No. 2 Confessions of A Dangerous Mind in May 2019.

The third new entry in the top ten this week belongs to Australian teenager The Kid Laroi, who debuts at 6 with his first full-length album, F*ck Love.

With the release of a deluxe edition, Gunna’s former No. 1 album, Wunna, rockets 46-8.
