By FYI Staff

Tory Lanez’s The New Toronto 3 debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, with the magical number of 10M earning him the highest on-demand streams total in the week. The album nudges The Weeknd into second place.  This is the second chart-topper for Lanez following 2018’s Memories Don’t Die. All five of his charted albums have debuted in the top five. Notable for chartologists, the No.'s 1 and 2 spots on Billboard's US Albums chart place The Weeknd at #1 and Lanez debuts in 2nd place.


The Weeknd’s After Hours, Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake and Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia each fall one position to numbers 2, 3 and 4 respectively, while Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding edges 6-5.
