Drake Remains King, But Adele Is Set For Another Coronation

Drake’s Certified Lover Boy remains No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart for the fifth straight week, once again picking up the highest on-demand streams for the week.

Lil Nas X’s Montero holds at 2, The Kid Laroi’s F*ck Love stays at 3 and Doja Cat’s Planet Her remains at 4.

The top debut of the week belongs to Meek Mill’s Expensive Pain at 5. It is his first release since Championships reached No. 1 in November 2018.

With the release of a new vinyl edition of the album, Taylor Swift’s Fearless (Taylor’s Version) rockets 102-9, earning the highest album sales total for the week.

Two more new releases debut in the top 50, with Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga’s Love for Sale at 33, and Brandi Carlile’s In These Silent Days at 43.

Mario Pelchat’s Comme Un Premier Rendez-Vous bullets 71-27 with the second-highest album sales total of the week.

With all the attention around the announcement of a new Adele single, her previous two albums make big gains on the chart, with 25  rocketing 143-67 and 21 bulleting 150-85.
