Is there any stopping The Weeknd? If first week sales generated by his new album ‘Beauty Behind the Madness’ is anything to go by the answer to that question is no.
He has scored the second largest debut this year with his new album. The album’s sales bagged him the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 and were pushed to the 412,000 units mark (326,000 albums) when streaming points where thrown into the moody maestro’s chart mix.
These numbers make him the only artist to top the R&B infused release to top the US albums chart this year and give him the second-highest first week figure this year, behind only Drake who topped the tally with ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.’
Also, His latest single from the new album “Can’t Feel My Face” is number one on the Billboard 100 at the moment .
