Rumours Rises, But Pop Smoke Has This Week's No. 1...Again!

By FYI Staff

After a week out of the top spot, Pop Smoke’s Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon returns to No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, achieving the highest on-demand stream total for the week.


It’s the album’s 9th non-consecutive week at No. 1, the longest-running chart-topping album since Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding held the top position for nine non-consecutive weeks beginning in September 2019.

Last week’s No. 1 album, 21 Savage and Metro Boomin’s Savage Mode II, falls to 2nd place. Juice WRLD’s Legends Never Die rebounds to No. 3 and Machine Gun Kelly’s Tickets To My Downfall drops to No. 4.

Fleetwood Mac is having a renaissance thanks to TikTok exposure, as the 1977 album Rumours skips 9-5 and astonishingly becoming the band’s highest-charting album in the Canada SoundScan era. Their Greatest Hits album also returns to the Top 100 list, landing at No. 54.

With the release of a 20th-anniversary deluxe set, Linkin Park’s debut album Hybrid Theory re-enters at 16, achieving the highest album sales total for the week. The album peaked in its initial release in 2000 at No. 5.

The highest debut of the week belongs to Brothers Osborne’s Skeletons at No. 48. This is the American country music duo’s first release since Port Saint Joe, which peaked at No. 30 in April 2018.
