The Weeknd is slaying the charts so badly right now that he just set an impressive record that’s never been done before. The Canadian crooner has become the very first artist to score the top three slots on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs Chart, thanks to his singles “The Hills” (No. 2), “Earned It” (No. 3), and “Can’t Feel My Face,” which sits at No. 1 (and also No. 3 on the Hot 100).
The only other artist that’s ever come close to such feet was Robin Thicke, who in 2013 had hits “Blurred Lines” and the Kendrick Lamar-featured “Give It 2 You” that sat at No. 1 and No. 3 respectively for three weeks.
Look for both “The Hills” and “Can’t Feel My Face” to be found on The Weeknd’s upcoming album Beauty Behind the Madness, which is due out Aug. 28. Hopefully there’s more where this comes from.https://twitter.com/_/status/621421496922148866
