The Weeknd‘s latest album After Hours has managed to hold its place as number one on the Billboard 200 Album Chart for four consecutive weeks. It’s the first time an album reached such a feat since Drake‘s Scorpion, which we saw making it to five weeks back in 2018.

After Hours garnered 75,000 album-equivalent units in the most recent week, 52,000 of which are from SEA units; 20,000, album sales; and 3,000, TEA units — an overall total that can be comparable to a whopping 73.7 million on-demand streams. According to sources, much of this success can be attributed to a steady flow of XO merch and other song releases that helped keep the album’s relevance as well as listeners’ interest. The album, however, was met with some major competition, namely Tory Lanez‘s The New Toronto 3, which was projected to earn 63,000 to 71,000 units — After Hours came out on top.
