The Weeknd’s "After Hours" Album Debuts at #1, Has Biggest Week of 2020


The Weeknd has scored his fourth #1 album with After Hours, after the album topped the Billboard 200 chart for the week ending March 26. The album also enjoyed the biggest week for any album in 2020 so far, selling 444,000 equivalent album units, which is also the artist's personal best sales week ever. Tracks from After Hours also posted an amazing 220.7 million on-demand streams--a number so large that the album would have debuted in the top spot even if it hadn't sold a single copy (although it sold 275,000 physical copies.) The album also set the biggest-ever streaming week for an R&B LP, topping his own album Starboy in December 2016. Meanwhile, Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake landed at #2 on the latest Billboard 200, followed by Lil Baby's My Turn, Bad Bunny's YHLQMDLG and Conan Gray's Kid Krow.
