By FYI Staff

The Weeknd’s Dawn FM remains at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart for the second straight week and again picks up the highest on-demand stream total for the week.


The Encanto soundtrack edges 3-2, switching positions with Gunna’s Ds4ever, and Adele’s 30 holds at No. 4.

The top new entry of the week belongs to the Lumineers’ Brightside, at No. 5. The band racks up the highest album sales total for the week with the release. All four of their albums have reached the top five; this is their follow-up to the No. 2 III in 2019.
