The Weeknd has returned to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Blinding Lights,” dethroning Roddy Ricch’s “The Box,” which held the spot for 11 weeks.

As reported by Billboard, the Toronto heartthrob — who debuted at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 album chart with After Hours just yesterday — has landed his fifth No. 1 spot on the chart with his hit single “Blinding Lights.” The track’s placement follows the multiplatinum R&B star’s other No. 1’s with “Call Out My Name,” “Starboy,” “Can’t Feel My Face,” and “The Hills.” Currently, all 14 of The Weeknd’s After Hours tracks are on the Hot 100 chart.


“Blinding Lights” knocked Roddy Ricch’s viral hit “The Box” out of the top spot, which spent its 11th non-consecutive weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart last week.

For more related news, The Weeknd just yesterday dropped off three new After Hours bonus tracks.
