P!nk's #1, Again, But Drake Is All Over The Songs Chart Too

P!nk’s Beautiful Trauma glides 2-1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart this week with 16,000 total consumption units, again helped by a ticket bundle campaign. This is the album’s second week at No. 1 and first since it debuted in the top position in October.

South Korean boy band BTS’ Love Yourself: Tear debuts at 2 with 15,000 total consumption units. It is the highest chart peak for the K-Pop band to date, surpassing the No. 3 position reached with Love Yourself: Her in September 2017.

Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys drops to 3, with 14,000 total consumption units. It is the first time that three albums had had over 10,000 total consumption units in one week since mid-December, when Eminem, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift reached the total.

Las Vegas metal band Five Finger Death Punch’s And Justice For None debuts at 4. It is their third top five album and first since 2015’s Got Your Six peaked at No. 3.

Toronto’s Nav debuts at 5 with Reckless. It is his second top five album, entering just below the No. 4 peak of his debut self-titled release in March 2017.

Atlanta rapper Lil Baby’s debut full-length album, Harder Than Ever, debuts at 9. The strong debut is helped by the streaming success of his duet with Drake on the song “Yes Indeed.”

A pair of soundtracks debut in the top 20, with 13 Reasons Why: Season 2 entering at 13 and Deadpool 2 at 16.

Other new entries in the top 50 include James Bay’s Electric Light at 14, Juice Wrld’s Goodbye & Good Riddance at 31, Kyle’s Light Of Mine at 33, Ray Lamontagne’s Part Of The Light at 44, and Corneille’s Love & Soul at 46. 

Backstreet Boys’ “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” debuts at No. 1 on the Digital Songs chart. It is the group’s first digital chart-topper and their first charted song as the main artist since “Straight Through My Heart” debuted at 9 in 2009.

Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” spends its third week at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart, with 4.6 million streams.

Drake appears on three songs in the top five this week. “Nice For What” holds at 2, his new duet with Lil Baby on “Yes Indeed” debuts at 4 and “God’s Plan” falls to 5.
