Tay Stays On Top As Alanis & Beyoncé Make Strong Debuts

Taylor Swift’s folklore remains at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart with over 23,000 total consumption units, achieving the highest album sales and on-demand streams for the week. It is her fifth chart-topping album to spend multiple weeks on the chart and the first since 2017’s Reputation reigned for three weeks.

Pop Smoke’s Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon and Juice WRLD’s Legends Never Die hold their positions from last week, at Nos 2 & 3 respectively. Harry Styles’ Fine Line edges 5-4, with the highest digital song download total for the week, and DaBaby’s Blame it On Baby rebounds 11-5.

The top new entry of the week belongs to Alanis Morissette’s Such Pretty Forks In The Road at No. 14, scoring the second-highest album sales total for the week. It is her first charted album since 2012’s Havoc And Bright Lights debuted at No. 1.

Diljit Dosanjh’s G.O.A.T. leaps 145-16 in its first full week of release. It is the Indian singer/actor’s highest-charting album to date.

Beyoncé’s The Lion King: The Gift, which debuted at No. 4 in July 2019, re-enters at No. 39, with the release of a deluxe version of the album.

Dominic Fike’s debut full-length album What Could Possibly Go Wrong lands at No. 50. Shoreline Mafia’s Maria Bidness comes in at No. 56, their highest-charting album to date.
