A Star Is Born Back At No. 1 But Maroon 5 Is Hot Again

After three weeks out of-1st place, Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack returns to the top of the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, moving 2-1 with a 1% consumption increase.

This is the album’s ninth week at No. 1–the most weeks at the top for a release since Ed Sheeran’s Divide spent nine non-consecutive weeks at No. 1, ending in January 2018. The Star Is Born s/t is the highest selling album of the week while the song “Shallow” spends its 16th week at No.1 on the Digital Songs chart.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s Hoodie SZN rebounds 3-2 and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack vaults 6-3 with a 7% consumption increase.

Returning to the Top 10 are 21 Savage’s I Am..I Was, which bullets 11-9 (+11%) and Billie Eilish’s Don’t Smile At Me, which moves 17-10 (+17%).

Following their performance on last week’s Super Bowl halftime show, two of Maroon 5s albums take big jumps, with Singles moving 108-35 (+85%) and Red Pill Blues rocketing 53-36 (+23%).

The top debut of the week belongs to Marshmello’s streaming only album, Marshmello Fortnite, which lands at 45. The producer/DJ has three songs in the top ten of the Streaming Songs chart, including his duet with Bastille on “Happier,” which moves 7-2, and “Alone,” which enters at 7.

Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” remains at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart for the third week.
