For the final chart of 2020, Taylor Swift’s evermore returns to No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Album chart, after debuting at the top two weeks ago and earned the highest sales total for the week.


Playboi Carti’s Whole Lotta Red picks up the highest debut of the week, entering at No. 2 with the highest on-demand stream total in the period. It is his highest-charting album to date, surpassing the No. 9 peak of his last album, 2018’s Die Lit.

Last week’s No. 1 album, Michael Buble’s Christmas, drops to No. 3 and Eminem’s Music to Be Murdered by falls to No. 4. Pop Smoke’s Shoot for The Stars Aim for The Moon holds at No. 5 and ends 2020 as the most consumed album of the year, just ahead of The Weeknd’s After Hours.
