Celine Dion's Encore Un Soir (“Another Night”) remains at number one on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart for the 2nd straight week, selling about 20K copies in the survey period and certified Double Platinum by Music Canada on Sept. 8.
The designation represents sales of 160K copies. Encore Un Soir was released by Sony Music on Aug. 28.
Dion has subsequently released an anglophile song, called “Recovering”, on Thursday, written by Pink. The track was released by Sony on Thursday, Sept. 8 so we won’t be seeing any chart action on this tribute to her late husband until next week. The song will be on her upcoming English-language album, her first since 2013's Loved Me Back to Life and she is expected to be performing it today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
And here she is performing the song live in Quebec City last month.
Travis Scott's Birds in The Trap Sing McKnight debuts at No. 2 with 7,200 consumption units. The album has the second highest album sales and audio on-demand stream totals for the week. It surpasses the No. 5 peak of his last album, 2015's Rodeo.
Despite a 5% consumption decrease over last week, Drake's Views rebounds 7-3, maintaining the top on-demand streaming total with 6.3 million hits in the week.
Two other new releases debut inside the top ten. Dallas Smith's Side Effects enters at 7 with 4,000 consumption units. It is his first top ten album, surpassing the No. 14 peak of his last release, 2014's Lifted, and is spurred by his top-5 Canadian country hit, “One Little Kiss” and the earlier North American single release, “Kids with Cars”.
Floridian rock outfit A Day to Remember' hit the big time with Bad Vibrations—the band’s sixth album and highest charting LP today, debuting in 9th place. The band’s last album, Common Courtesy, released in 2013, peaked at 31.
The three albums released by the late Quebec singer (and former hockey player) Bob Bissonnette, who passed away Sept. 4, all re-enter the top 200 album consumption chart, with 2012's Les Barbes De Series and 2010's Recrue De L'annee landing back-to-back at Nos. 83 and 84.
The Chainsmokers' "Closer" remains at number one on both the Streaming and Digital Songs charts.
