Justin Timberlake Takes The Top And The Sheepdogs Surge

Justin Timberlake’s Man Of The Woods debuts at number one on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart with 18,000 total consumption units. The album scores the highest sales total and song download total and has the second highest audio-on-demand stream total for the week. It is his fourth straight chart-topping album. Following his performance at the halftime show at the Super Bowl, two of his previous albums return to the chart, with 2006’s Futuresex/Love Sounds landing at No. 94 and 2002’s Justified, his only solo album not to reach No. 1, coming in at No. 162.

Last week’s No. 1 album, Migos’ Culture II, drops to No. 2 but still has the top audio-on-demand stream total for the week with over ten and a half million streams. Ed Sheeran’s Divide falls one spot to No. 3, and Camila Cabello’s Camila holds at No. 4

The Sheepdogs’ Changing Colours debuts at No. 5. It surpasses the No. 11 peak of their last release, 2015’s Future Nostalgia. It is their second highest charted album to date, only topped by their 2012 No. 1 self-titled album.

Other albums debuting in the top 40 this week include Rich Brian’s Amen at No. 18, Milk & Bone’s Deception Bay at No. 22 and Awolnation’s Here Come The Runts at No. 25.

Drake’s “God’s Plan” holds at the top of the Streaming Songs chart for the third straight week while Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” spends its 16th non-consecutive week at the top of the Digital Songs chart.
