Changes Becomes Justin Bieber's Eighth No. 1 Album

Four album releases debut in the top five on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart this week.

Justin Bieber’s first in four years, Changes, debuts at No. 1 with 40,000 total consumption units, and a clean sweep in achieving the highest album sales, on-demand streams and digital song sales totals for the week. It is Bieber’s eighth chart-topping album and the first album from a Canadian artist to debut at No. 1 since Leonard Cohen’s Thanks for The Dance in December 2019.

Alan Doyle’s Rough Side Out debuts at 2, marking his first top ten solo album and his highest-charting release since Great Big Sea’s Safe Upon the Shore peaked at No. 2 in 2010.

The Slow Rush, Tame Impala’s first album in four and a half years, debuts at 3. It falls just below the No. 2 peak of the Australian band’s 2015 release, Currents.

Look Back At It rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s Artist 2.0 debuts at 4. It is his second top-five album and the follow-up to his No. 1 Hoodie SZN.

The No. 1 album for the last four weeks, Eminem’s Music to Be Murdered By, drops to 5th place.

The fifth debut in the top ten belongs to Monsta X’s All About Luv, at No. 10. It is the K-Pop act’s first top ten album.

Roddy Ricch’s The Box spends its seventh straight week at the top of the Streaming Songs chart. After 14 weeks at the top of the Digital Songs chart, Tones and I’s Dance Monkey is replaced at No. 1 by Billie Eilish’s Bond theme song, No Time To Die. It is her first chart-topping digital song, surpassing the No. 2 peak of Bad Guy.
