For the first time since 2015 when streaming and digital song sales were included to tabulate total consumption chart data, three Canadian artists have the top three albums on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart. NAV’s Good Intentions debuts at No. 1 with over 10,000 total consumption units, picking up the highest album sales and on-demand streams for the week. It is his second consecutive chart-topping album, following 2019’s Bad Habits.


Last week’s No. 1 album, Drake’s Dark Lane Demo Tapes, drops to 2nd place, and The Weeknd’s After Hours holds at No. 3.

Kehlani’s It Was Good Until It Wasn’t debuts at No. 4. It is her second-highest chart peak to date, only surpassed by her 2017 No. 3 debut album Sweetsexysavage, and topping her last release, 2019’s While We Wait, which peaked at 17.

A Conversation With The Tragically Hip Manager Jake Gold Before His Induction into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame

The veteran manager who's worked with The Hip, The Watchmen, The Pursuit of Happiness and others will be honoured at CMW's Canadian Live Music Industry Awards on June 4.

Against the backdrop of the Toronto skyline, Jake Gold, the manager behind The Tragically Hip, will be inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame on June 4, 2024. The ceremony will take place at the Westin Harbour Castle at the 2024 Canadian Live Music Industry Awards as part of Canadian Music Week (CMW).

Retiring CMW president Neill Dixon praises Gold as an adept manager and influential figure in shaping iconic bands. Most notably, Gold helped break The Tragically Hip early in their career, reuniting with them after Gord Downie's death to lead them into a posthumous new act. They've stayed surprisingly active with Gold overseeing projects like the Saskadelphia EP and an upcoming Amazon documentary series.
