Alicia Keys' Alicia Debuts At No. 2, Right Behind Pop Smoke

Pop Smoke’s Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon remains at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart for the eighth non-consecutive week, earning 9,500 total consumption units and, again, achieving the highest on-demand stream total for the week. The album jumps to No. 2 on the year-to-date album consumption chart, behind The Weeknd’s After Hours.

Alicia Keys’ ALICIA is the top new entry of the week, debuting at No. 2, and earning the highest album sales total for the week. It is her first release since 2016’s Here peaked at No. 10 and it is her highest-charting album since 2007’s As I Am debuted at No. 2.

Juice WRLD’s Legends Never Die and Taylor Swift’s folklore both drop one position, to Nos. 3 and 4 respectively.

Keith Urban’s The Speed Of Now, Part 1 debuts at 5. It is the hat star’s sixth top five album and fourth straight, including his last album, 2018’s Graffiti U, which reached No. 1.

The third album to debut in the top ten this week belongs to Lil Tecca’s Virgo World, at No. 6. His last release, 2019’s We Love You Tecca, peaked at No. 3.

Two other new releases debut in the top 50, with American ‘Psycho’ singer Ava Max’s Heaven & Hell landing at 16 and Belgian-Congolese rapper Damso’s Qalf at No. 36.
