The Weeknd keeps breaking Billboard records.
The Weeknd has been riding high off the success off his new album, Beauty Behind the Madness, which as he tweeted yesterday, has been keeping the #1 spot on lock for three weeks in a row. That's not his only feat though, as all the records off the album were charting on Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Top 50.
Even more than just that though, The Weeknd has been able to dominate Billboard's more coveted Top 100 chart. The singer has gone ahead and taken over the Top 100 #1 spot, from himself. With "Can't Feel My Face" dropping from #1 to #3, "The Hills" rises up from #2 to #1 in its place. The last time someone replaced themselves on #1 spot was the almighty Taylor Swift last year. It's even more rare for a male solo artist-- Billboard reports that the last solo male artist to replace himself with himself was T.I. in 2008. This also makes The Weeknd the 11th act in Billboard history to succeed himself at #1 on the Top 100.
In related news, another Canadian made his way to the Top 100 this week, who else, Drake. Drake's "Hotline Bling" entered the top 10 at #9, which, believe it or not, is his first song in the top 10 of the Top 100 to chart since "Hold On, We're Going Home" two years ago.
Congrats to The Weeknd on all his success as of late!
