J. Cole Has This Week's No. 1 Album

J. Cole’s The Off-Season debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, claiming the highest on-demand streams and second-highest album sales total for the week.

With close to 19,000 total consumption units, it is the fourth-highest one-week total so far in 2021, behind only Justin Bieber, Morgan Wallen and Taylor Swift. It is Cole’s third straight chart-topping album, following 2016’s 4 Your Eyez Only and 2018’s KOD.

Justin Bieber’s Justice drops to 2nd place, Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia edges 4-3, and The Weeknd’s The Highlights falls to 4th place.

Nicki Minaj’s Beam Me Up Scotty, the re-release of her 2009 mixtape featuring three new songs, debuts at No. 5. This is her first charted release since Queen reached No. 2 in August 2018.

The Black Keys’ Delta Kream debuts at No. 12, scoring the highest album sales for the week. It is their first charted album since 2019’s Let’s Rock peaked at No. 4.

Alan Jackson’s first album in six years, Where Have You Gone, debuts at No. 33, and St. Vincent’s Daddy’s Home, her first album since 2017, enters at 48.
