The Weeknd Returns To 1st Place On This Week's Albums Chart

By FYI Staff

After two weeks out of the top spot, The Weeknd’s After Hours returns to No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart for a fourth week at the top, logging 5,200 total consumption units and the highest on-demand stream total for the week.


Last week’s No. 1 album, DaBaby’s Blame It on Baby drops to 2nd place, Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding slides 6-3, and Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake and Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia each drop one position to Nos. 4 and 5 respectively.

The top debut of the week goes to Lennon Stella’s Three Two One, at No. 10. It is her highest-charting release to date, surpassing the No. 60 peak of her EP Love, Me in November 2018.

Other debuts this week include YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s 38 Baby 2, at No. 24; and Trivium’s What The Dead Men Say, at 43, which earns the highest album sales total in the week.

ArtistsCAN’s Lean on Me, the charity single recording by top Canadian artists for covid-19 relief initiatives and premiered during last Sunday’s Stronger Together television special, debuts at number one on the Digital Songs chart. It is the second version of the song to reach the top five in 2020, following the Bill Withers’ original version of the song which entered at No. 4 following his passing in April.

Travis Scott & Kid Cudi’s The Scotts debut at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart. It’s Scott’s fourth streaming song chart-topper and first since Highest In the Room in October 2019.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
