Despite competition from Lana Del Rey and Taylor Swift, Tool’s comeback album, Fear Inoculum, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart with 24,000 total consumption units, driven in part by having the highest album sales total for the week. It is the band’s third chart-topping album and first since 10,000 Days debuted at No. 1 in May 2006.
Taylor Swift’s Lover drops a place in its second week, to 2, but continues to have the highest audio on-demand streams total.
Lana Del Rey’s Norman Fucking Rockwell debuts at 3. All four of her full-length albums have reached the top three. It is her first release since 2017’s Lust For Life debuted at No. 1.
Lil Tecca’s debut mixtape We Love You Tecca enters at 4, with the second-highest audio-on-demand stream total for the week. His single “Ransom” jumps to No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart.
Travis Scott’s Astroworld rockets 21-10 with a 69% consumption increase. It is the former chart-topping album’s first appearance in the top ten since March.
Two other new releases debut in the top 50: Big Wreck’s …but for the sun, landing at 27, and Sheryl Crow’s Threads entering at 31.
Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello’s “Senorita” remains at No. 1 on the Digital Songs chart.
