Travis Scott Has 1st No. 1 Album of 2020

By FYI Staff

As is normally the case for the last week of the year, very few releases land in the upper reaches of the chart. However, Travis Scott & Jackboys’ Jackboys broke the jinx with a No. 1 debut on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart and 11,000 total consumption units—the highest album sales and audio-on-demand stream total for the week. It is his second chart-topping album, following his last release, 2018’s Astroworld, which spent two weeks at No. 1. All four of his albums have peaked in the top five.


Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding moved 3-2, switching positions with Harry Styles’ Fine Line, Roddy Ricch’s Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial rebounded 6-4 and the Frozen 2 soundtrack sprinted 8-5.

Tones And I’s Dance Monkey remained No. 1 on the Digital Songs chart and, with all the holiday songs dropping off the list, returned to No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart. The affiliated album, The Kids Are Coming, bulleted 21-10, matching the album’s highest chart peak, reached in November.
