By FYI Staff

Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding remains at number one on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart for the second week, with 22,000 total consumption units, generating the highest audio-on-demand stream and digital song totals for the week. The album currently sits at No. 2 on the Year-to-date consumption chart, behind Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go.


The highest debut of the week and lone new entry in the top ten belongs to the Lumineers’ III at 2, scoring the highest album sales total of the week. All three of their albums have peaked in the top two and it is the group’s first charted albums since Cleopatra entered at No. 1 in April 2016.

Other new entries in the top 50 include Korn’s The Nothing at No. 11, Glorious Sons’ A War On Everything at No. 13, the band’s highest-charting album to date, the Top Boy soundtrack at No. 23 and Charli XCX’s Charli at No. 50.

Following last week’s passing of singer/guitarist/songwriter Ric Ocasek, The Cars’ Complete Greatest Hits debuts at No. 55.

Lewis Capaldi’s first charted song, Someone You Loved, jumps 2-1 on the Digital Songs chart, with a 19% download increase. It took the song 27 weeks to reach the summit.

Raised on a 20K-acre farm in Saskatchewan, The Hunter Brothers – real-life brothers, Luke, J.J., Ty, Brock and Dusty– have become country radio staples since releasing their debut single “El Dorado” in 2016. Since then, they’ve earned two gold singles with “Born and Raised” and “Those Were the Nights, and platinum status with “Those Were the Nights” and racked up a cumulative 87M streams and 34M YouTube views.

The group’s signature harmonies, melodies and storybook songs have helped fuel their popularity as a live attraction as well. They have just wrapped a 10-night residency (July 5-14) at the Calgary Stampede, averaging 20K attendance nightly.
