Quebec superstar Eric Lapointe’s Delivrance debuts at 2, picking up the highest album sales total for the week with over 15,000 units sold. It surpasses the No. 6 peak of his last album, 2013’s Jour De Nuit and it is his highest charting album since his first No. 1 album, 2008’s Ma Peau.

Floridian rock act Shinedown’s Attention Attention debuts at 8. It matches the peak of their last release, 2015’s Threat To Survival.

Following two sold-out shows at Montreal’s Olympia last week, French pop singer Christophe Maé’s L’attrape-Reves rockets 111-9 with a 440% consumption increase. The album debuted at 57 in mid-March.
