Tay's 'folklore' Remains No.1 For Third Consecutive Week

Taylor Swift’s folklore spends its third straight week at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, scoring the highest album sales total for the week and achieving 14,000 total consumption units. It matches Reputation, the 2017 album that marks her second-longest-running chart-topping album, trailing only 1989 which spent nine weeks at No. 1 beginning in late 2014.

Pop Smoke’s Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon, which picks up the highest on-demand stream total for the week, and Juice WRLD’s Legends Never Die, hold their positions at Nos. 2 and 3, while DaBaby’s Blame It On Baby edges 5-4.

Luke Bryan has the highest debut for the week as Born Here Live Here Die Here enters at No. 5. It is his seventh top-five album and it matches the peak of his last release, 2017’s What Makes You Country.

Four more new releases debut in the top 20 this week with each act scoring their highest charting album to date. Glass Animals’ Dreamland comes in at 13, surpassing the No. 50 peak of 2016’s How To Be A Human Being. Nle Choppa’s Top Shotta lands at No. 14, topping 64 Cottonwood’s debut in December. Popcaan’s Fixtape debuts at No. 15, surpassing Forever that debuted at 72 in 2018, and Amine’s Limbo lands at No. 16, topping his No. 59 Good For You in 2017.
