Sainte-Foy, Quebec’s hugely popular Jean Leloup debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart this week with L’etrange Pays, earning himself a third straight chart-topper, following 2009’s Mille Excuses Milady and 2015’s A Paradis City. He is the third Canadian artist to score a No. 1 album in 2019, following Bryan Adams and NAV. It is also the first Francophone album to top the chart since Pierre Lapointe’s La Science Du Coeur in October 2017.


Another French-Canadian artist, Loud, debuts at 3 with Tout Ca Pour Ca. This is the Quebec rapper’s highest charting album, surpassing the No. 58 peak of 2018’s Une Annee Record.

With the exposure he is getting with the Toronto Raptors’ playoff run, Drake’s Scorpion jumps 14-9 with an 11% consumption increase. It is the album’s first week in the top ten since March.

One other new release debut in the top 50 is the Aladdin soundtrack, which enters at 12.
