The Weeknd's After Hours Returns To No. 1

The Weeknd’s After Hours returns to number one on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, with 4,000 total consumption units. It is the album’s fifth non-consecutive week at the top, becoming the longest-running chart-topping album for a Canadian artist since Drake’s Scorpion spent five straight weeks at No. 1 in July 2018.

The No. 1 album for the last three weeks, Lady Gaga’s Chromatic, falls to No. 2 and DaBaby’s Blame It On Baby holds at No. 3, picking up the highest on-demand stream total for the week.

Harry Styles’ Fine Line moves 6-4, the highest position the album has reached since its fifth week on the chart back in January.

With the release of a deluxe version of the album, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s Artist 2.0 leaps 86-7, the album’s first appearance in the top ten since its second week on the chart in March.

The top new entry of the week belongs to the Black Eyed Peas’ Translation at No. 8, achieving the highest digital track sales for the week. It is their highest-charting album since The Beginning peaked at No. 2 in 2010.

Lamb of God’s self-titled album debuts at No. 11, picking up the highest album sales total for the week. It is their highest-charting album since VII: Sturm Und Drang reached No. 1 in 2015.

Bob Dylan’s Rough and Rowdy Ways debuts at No. 14, his highest-charting album since Shadows in The Night peaked at No. 10 in 2015.

Other new entries include Protest the Hero’s Palimpsest at No. 40, John Legend’s Bigger Love at No. 45, Neil Young’s Homegrown at No. 51 and Gabby Barrett’s Goldmine at No. 53.
