Quebec City Rapper Souldia Makes A Strong Debut With His New Album

The Weeknd’s After Hours spends its third straight week at number one on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, once again picking up the highest on-demand stream totals for the week with over 10 million. It matches his first No. 1 album, 2015’s Beauty Behind The Madness, for his second-longest-running chart-topping album to date.

Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake rebounds 4-2 and Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia drops one position to No. 3.

The top debut of the week belongs to Sam Hunt’s Southside, at No. 4. It is his second straight studio album to debut in the top five, following his 2014 release Montevallo, which entered and peaked at No. 2.

The only other new release to debut in the top 50 belongs to Quebec City rapper Souldia’s Backstage, at 32.

Two legendary artists who passed away last week place two albums each in the top 200. Bill Withers’ Just As I Am and Still Bill enter at Nos. 114 and 123 respectively as his two biggest hits, Lean On Me and Ain’t No Sunshine, land in the top six on the Digital Songs chart. John Prine’s self-titled album enters at 103 and Tree Of Forgiveness comes in at 188.

Drake’s Toosie Slide debuts at No. 1 on the Digital Song charts. It is his fifth digital chart-topper as the main artist, and first since In My Feelings reached No. 1 in July 2018. The song debuts at No. 2 on the Streaming Songs chart, behind Roddy Ricch’s The Box.
