Canadian Acts Hold Top 3 Spots On This Week's Albums Chart

For the second time in the last three weeks, Canadian artists hold the top three positions on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart. Justin Bieber’s Justice boomerangs 3-1 with the highest on-demand streams for the week. It is the album’s fifth non-consecutive week at the top of the chart.

After holding the No. 1 position for the last two weeks, Charlotte Cardin’s Phoenix falls to 2nd place, but still achieves the highest album sales total for the third straight week.

The Weeknd’s The Highlights moves up one position to No. 3.

Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia skips 5-4 with the highest digital track download total for the week, and Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album moves 6-5.

Weezer’s Van Weezer earns the highest debut for the week, at No. 18. It is the LA band’s highest chart peak since Weezer (White Album) reached No. 10 in April 2016 and surpasses the No. 69 peak of their last album, OK Human, in January.

The only other new release to enter in the top 50 is Michigan rapper Tee Grizzley’s Built for Whatever, at No. 46. It surpasses the No. 88 peak of his last release, 2020’s The Smartest.
