The Weeknd is opening on top of the Billboard 200 as After Hours accumulates a total of 444,000 equivalent album units in its debut week, marking the biggest overall week of 2020 so far. Of that number, 275,000 are in album sales, 6,000 in track equivalent units and 163,000 in streaming equivalent album units. This marks the XO Records founder’s fourth No. 1 album and his biggest weekend yet, surpassing the 412,000 opening week units of Beauty Behind the Madness in 2015.

Lil Uzi Vert‘s Eternal Atake drops one step down to No. 2, followed by Lil Baby‘s My Turn and Bad Bunny‘s YHLQMDLG at Nos. 3 and 4 respectively. Conan Gray takes the halfway point at No. 5, while Roddy Ricch stays at No. 6 for another week. Post Malone moves up to No. 7 with Hollywood’s Bleeding while Jhené Aiko‘s Chilombo falls to No. 8.
