LCD Soundsystem’s American Dream debuts at number one on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart this week with 7,000 total consumption units combining track sales with on-demand streams. This is the group’s first chart-topping album, and the first release since 2010’s This Is Happening peaked at 11.
Ed Sheeran’s Divide rebounds 4-2 with a 16% consumption increase, Xxxtentacion’s 17 drops one position to 3 but maintains the highest Audio On-Demand stream total for the week.
Kendrick Lamar’s Damn edges 5-4 and Imagine Dragons’ Evolve moves 6-5. In its 27th week on the chart, Khalid’s American Teen jumps 11-7, its highest chart position to date, and Drake’s More Life rebounds 15-9.
Other big movers include Logic’s Everybody, which bullets 25-17 (+11%), Lana Del Rey’s Lust for Life rockets 52-27 (+40%) and Nav and Metro Boomin’s Perfect Timing jumps 40-29 (+18%).
The only other debut in the top 50 belongs to Charlotte Cardin’s EP Main Girl at 34. The album, which is the seventh highest selling release of the week, is her follow-up to 2016’s Big Boy EP which peaked at 12, before the era when Track and Streaming equivalents were used to compile the official chart.
Taylor Swift’s “…Ready for It” debuts at No. 1 on the Songs chart, the second time she has accomplished the feat in as many weeks. Last week’s No. 1, “Look What You Made Me Do,” drops to 2 but remains at the top of the Streaming Songs chart, with over six million impressions.
