Drake Still Rules, But Adele, the Beatles & Mac Miller Sizzle

Drake’s Certified Lover Boy holds at No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart for the seventh consecutive week, once again picking up the highest on-demand stream total.

Three albums debut in the top five this week, led by Coldplay’s Music of the Spheres at No. 2, earning the highest album sales total for the week. It is the Brit band’s eighth straight top three studio album and surpasses the No. 3 peak of their last release, 2019’s Everyday Life.

Young Thug’s Punk debuts at No. 3 with the second highest on-demand stream total for the week. It is the follow-up to his No. 1 So Much Fun in August 2019. He also reached No. 2 in April 2021 with the collaboration album Slime Language 2.

Mac Miller’s 2014 mixtape Faces, now available for the first time at streaming outlets and vinyl, debuts at No. 5. It is his fourth top five album and follows the No. 3 peak of his posthumous 2020 release Circles.

51 years after its initial release, the Beatles final studio album Let It Be re-enters at No. 8 thanks to new deluxe versions, picking up the second-highest album sales total for the week. It matches the No. 8 debut of the Let It Be…Naked album, released in 2003.

The Adele catalogue gains continue this week as 25 jumps 28-11, 21 moves 39-16 and 19 bullets 191-48.

Other debuts this week include Coeur De Pirate’s Impossible A Aimer, at No. 24; Lovejoy’s Pebble Brain, at No. 41 and Johnny Reid’s Love Someone at No. 56.
