Adele's Catalogue Is On Fire, But Drake Rules Roost For 6th Week

Drake’s Certified Lover Boy spends its sixth straight week at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, and is the only album this week to have over ten million on-demand streams. It surpasses his 2018 Scorpion to become his second longest running No. 1 album to date. Only his 2016 release, Views, has spent more time at the top of the chart, with 12 non-consecutive weeks.

Lil Nas X’s Montero remains at No. 2. With the release of a deluxe edition, Justin Bieber’s former No. 1 album Justice bullets 12-3, and The Kid Laroi’s F*ck Love and Doja Cat’s Planet Her both fall one position, to Nos. 4 and 5 respectively.

The top new entry of the week belongs to American rapper Don Toliver’s Life as A Don, at No. 6. It is his highest charting album as a solo artist, surpassing the No. 7 peak of his debut album Heaven or Hell in March 2020. He was a member of the collective JackBoys that scored a No. 1 album in January 2020.

The only other new entry in the top 50 belongs to Vancouver rapper bbno$’s Eat Ya Veggies at No. 36, his highest charting album to date.

Adele’s catalogue continues to post consumption increases in anticipation of her upcoming new 30 album release in November. 25 blasts 67-28, 21 skips 85-39, and 19 re-enters the chart at No. 191.
