Morgan Wallen's No. 1...Again and Controversy Helps Britney

Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album returns to No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart for the fifth non-consecutive week, earning the highest on-demand stream total for the week. It is the first Country album to spend five weeks at the top since Shania Twain’s Greatest Hits held the No. 1 position for five non-consecutive weeks in November 2004.

After scoring the No. 1 album last week with his new greatest hits’ album The Highlights (which falls to No. 6), The Weeknd’s last studio release, After Hours, returns to the top five at No. 2, with the highest digital song downloads for the week.

Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia bullets 7-3, the album’s highest chart position since its second week of release in April 2020. Pop Smoke’s Shoot for the Stars Aim For The Moon remains at 4 and Taylor Swift’s evermore holds at 5.

The top new entry for the week belongs to Florida Georgia Line’s Life Rolls On, at 18. It is the group’s first full-length album since Can’t Say I Ain’t Country peaked at No. 4 in February 2019.

Pretty Reckless’ Death by Rock and Roll lands at 28, marking it as the first charting album for the NYC rock band since Who You Selling For reached No. 12 in 2016.

The soundtrack for the new film Judas and the Black Messiah debuts at No. 32, and Dominique Fils-Aime’s Three Little Words comes in at No. 33 with the highest album sales total for the week.

With all the attention around the new documentary Framing Britney Spears, the Essential Britney Spears collection re-enters at 39, the highest chart position for the former “Princess of Pop” since Glory debuted at No. 4 in September 2016.
