The Weeknd Topples Adele With 'Dawn FM' Debuting At No. 1

By FYI Staff

The Weeknd’s Dawn FM debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, earning the highest album sales, on-demand streams and digital song downloads for the week. It is his sixth straight chart-topping album and first since The Highlights hit No. 1 eleven months ago. It's also worth noting that there were no physical sales pushing the 16-track album. The CD and LP are to be available on Jan. 28.


Gunna’s Ds4ever debuts at No. 2 with the second highest on-demand stream total for the week. It is his second highest-charting album to date, only surpassed by his last release, the No. 1 Wunna, in June 2020.

The soundtrack for Encanto slides one position, to No. 3, despite a 30% consumption increase. Adele’s 30, last week’s No. 1 album, drops to 4th place with The Weeknd’s The Highlights holding at 5.

The only other new entry in the top 60 is the soundtrack to the computer-animated musical comedy film Sing 2 that makes its entrance at 59. The 17-track album includes songs performed by U2, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Bomba Estereo, Taron Egerton, Halsey, and Pharrell Williams.

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.
