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.
