The Weeknd’s After Hours debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, achieving the highest album sales and on-demand stream totals for the week. With over 54,000 total consumption units, it is the highest one week total so far in 2020. It is his fourth consecutive chart-topping album, his first since 2018’s My Dear Melancholy, and it is the second No. 1 album in 2020 from a Canadian artist (following Justin Bieber’s Changes). The Weeknd has two songs landing in the top ten of the Streaming Songs chart, with Blinding Lights moving 9-3, and In Your Eyes debuting at No. 8.
