Teddy Goes Straight To No. 1 With 'No. 6'

Ed Sheeran’s No. 6 Collaborations Project debuts at number one on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart with 30,000 total consumption units and scores a clean sweep in picking up the highest album sales, audio-on-demand streams and digital song totals for the week. This is Teddy’s third consecutive chart-topper, following 2014’s X, and 2017’s Divide, which spent nine weeks at No. 1. Divide moves 17-15 with a 5% consumption gain.

Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? edges 3-2 with a 17% consumption increase, switching positions with Lil Nas X’s 7, which falls to No. 3. His “Old Town Road” once again tops both the Streaming and Digital Songs charts.

Only two other new releases debut in the top 50 this week. American singer (Jillian Rose), Banks’ III, comes in at 7, her highest-charting album to date. It surpasses the No. 8 peak of her first charted album, 2014’s Goddess, and tops the No. 12 position of her last album, 2016’s The Altar.

The soundtrack for the remake of the movie The Lion King debuts at 29.
