Encanto S/T Holds At No. 1 For 8th Straight Week

Two new releases debut in the top three on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, but the Encanto soundtrack continues its run at the top to spend its eighth straight week at No. 1.

However, for the first time since it reached No. 1, it does not have the highest on-demand stream total for the week. That honour belongs to Lil Durk’s 7220, which enters at No. 2. It is the Chicago rapper’s highest-charting album to date, surpassing the No. 6 peak of The Voice, his previous album released in December 2020.

Swedish rock band Ghost’s Impera debuts at No. 3, earning the highest album sales total for the week. It is the ensemble’s highest-charting album to date, topping the No. 6 peak of their last release, 2018’s Prequelle.

Rounding out the top five is Ed Sheeran’s = which falls two positions to No. 4, and Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album holding at No. 5.

The only other new entry in the top 50 belongs to Brit singer-songwriter Rex Orange County’s Who Cares? at 16, the follow-up to his 2019 No. 3 release Pony.
