Tory Lanez’s The New Toronto 3 debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, with the magical number of 10M earning him the highest on-demand streams total in the week. The album nudges The Weeknd into second place. This is the second chart-topper for Lanez following 2018’s Memories Don’t Die. All five of his charted albums have debuted in the top five. Notable for chartologists, the No.'s 1 and 2 spots on Billboard's US Albums chart place The Weeknd at #1 and Lanez debuts in 2nd place.
The Weeknd’s After Hours, Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake and Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia each fall one position to numbers 2, 3 and 4 respectively, while Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding edges 6-5.
Selena Gomez’s Rare, which debuted at No. 1 in January, rockets 39-9, thanks to the newly minted deluxe edition release.
Other debuts this week include the Strokes’ The New Abnormal, at 21 (with the highest album sales total of the week), and Nightwish’s Human. II: Nature, at 85 (with the second-highest album sales of the week).
