A month and a half later, The Weeknd’s LP is still selling like a new release.
The Weeknd made a number one debut with his Starboy project back in December, and this week, he’s back at the top spot. Billboard reports that singer Abel Tesfaye’s third studio album climbed back to the #1 position after 5 weeks of hovering within the top 3. It’s been three months since an album returned to the #1 position, the last time being Drake’s VIEWS, which made a comeback for a final 13th week atop the Billboard 200.
The title track from the project reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 last month, reigning for one week before being replaced by return-visitor “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd.
The Weeknd and Drake were both spotted at OVO artist P. Reign’s party over the weekend, which has raised some speculation over the possibility of a new collaboration for Drake’s forthcoming More Life project.
