After releasing My Dear Melancholy recently, The Weeknd has another reason to celebrate as the album debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. In doing so, the new project becomes the Canadian artist’s third consecutive album to enter at the top of the charts, following 2016’s Starboy and 2015’s Beauty Behind the Madness.

Since its release on March 30, the six track album earned 169,000 equivalent album units in its first week. This figure is made up from different metrics including traditional album sales, track equivalent albums and streaming equivalent albums. The sales performance is also the highest first week figure by any R&B album since The Weeknd dropped Starboy almost 18 months ago.
