After three weeks out of-1st place, Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack returns to the top of the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, moving 2-1 with a 1% consumption increase.


This is the album’s ninth week at No. 1–the most weeks at the top for a release since Ed Sheeran’s Divide spent nine non-consecutive weeks at No. 1, ending in January 2018. The Star Is Born s/t is the highest selling album of the week while the song “Shallow” spends its 16th week at No.1 on the Digital Songs chart.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s Hoodie SZN rebounds 3-2 and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack vaults 6-3 with a 7% consumption increase.

Returning to the Top 10 are 21 Savage’s I Am..I Was, which bullets 11-9 (+11%) and Billie Eilish’s Don’t Smile At Me, which moves 17-10 (+17%).

Following their performance on last week’s Super Bowl halftime show, two of Maroon 5s albums take big jumps, with Singles moving 108-35 (+85%) and Red Pill Blues rocketing 53-36 (+23%).

The top debut of the week belongs to Marshmello’s streaming only album, Marshmello Fortnite, which lands at 45. The producer/DJ has three songs in the top ten of the Streaming Songs chart, including his duet with Bastille on “Happier,” which moves 7-2, and “Alone,” which enters at 7.

Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” remains at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart for the third week.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
