After two weeks of dominating the Billboard 200 thanks to holiday album sales and streams, vocal group Pentatonix gets pushed out of the top spot by The Weeknd‘s latest set ‘Star Boy.’

The project, his second chart-topper, debuted at #1 six weeks ago and stayed there for a week before being ousted by the competition.  This week, however, courtesy of some serious streaming, the album has been lifted back to the chart’s perch.

Billboard reports:

‘…[‘Star Boy’] climbs from No. 2 to No. 1 (for a second week in the penthouse) with 69,000 equivalent album units (down 26 percent) earned in the week ending Jan. 5, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 18,000 were in traditional album sales (down 46 percent)…

Look below to see who joins the Canadian crooner in the top 25 of this week’s Billboard 200:

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 11, 2017

      Collecting actual sales……FRIHSTREAMS should thank spotify for being in the top 20.

      • DaNavy January 11, 2017

        But where’s Sugar Water on the charts? How’s All Night doing?

  2. Rosie January 11, 2017

    Why is that Hot Topic ass Suicide Squad soundtrack still in the top 10…
    Anyways La La Land is going #1 in sales next week with less than 30K. RIP sales

  3. blue January 11, 2017

    Anti, Views, 25 are top 20 a year/almost a year later!!! damn!

  4. Mark111 /.\ January 11, 2017

    Anti still in the top 20 just two weeks from a year after being released. May even reenter top 10 again on the one year mark. 🙂

  5. Fancy BISH January 11, 2017

    It looks like he’ll keep that #1 next week too…don’t be pressed, it’s just King Abel chile *Does cartwheel like Gabby Douglas* lol

  6. Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn is 👑 January 11, 2017

    Congrats Abel.

  7. NYC January 11, 2017

    Congrats with his fine self! Selena girl, high five✋

    • Truthful January 12, 2017

      You can say that again, he is so cute!

  8. Grande the Way January 11, 2017

    Congrats to Selena’s man (lol 2017 is certainly off to an interesting start). Seems like it’s trendy to hate on The Weeknd now but Star Boy is his most balanced album in my opinion. I’m glad he didn’t stay in the niche that got his following but is willing to try more mainstream sounds. Also impressed to see Dangerous Woman still in the top 20 over 8 months later. It just landed 1.3 billion combined streams on Spotify. If Rihanna is the Queen of Streams, Ariana is definitely the Princess of Streams.

    • Truthful January 12, 2017

      The most successful anyone becomes, the more hate they receive. It’s basically jealousy, because they’re lacking in their life.

  9. Rihboy January 11, 2017

    Thought she was forgotten? Anti has replay value. As for lemonade. That kid lasted as long as expected. Fizzlled away. This is the perfect time for Rih to drop another visual and give close to you some single treatment. Can easily be a hit.

    • YISI January 11, 2017

      Actual sales>Streaming.
      Anti is only in it’s position due to streams and streams only. Meanwhile Lemonade continues to outsell it stateside and internationally.Plus Lemonade is a tidal release only.
      The same people are streaming Anti over and over,while different people are actually buying Lemonade.So delusional.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 12, 2017

        If that’s so, then why did Lemonade debut with 30% sales decrease than Beyonce, and continue to trail significantly in sales in respective time?

  10. Cough Cough January 12, 2017

    Every time I see him I just think of Alvin and The chipmunks. Wow

  11. Truthful January 12, 2017

    He is such a major cutie 😍

  12. @ASAPicon January 12, 2017

    Not @ Moana slaying

  13. HailLegendBeysus January 12, 2017

    Why is the salvation army so bothered by Lemonade?
    Bey has 3 albums charting this week!
    I Am Sasha Fierce
    Her music has longevity and she remains unbothered. Your favs can’t relate unless their Taylor Swift or Adele. 🐸☕

    • IStan4Rihanna. January 12, 2017

      It’s a shame that she will never see nor experience half of Adele or Taylor Swift’s actual sales margin, considering ‘LEMONADE’ has sold less than ‘BEYONCE’ did in 12 months with even less/worst singles/radio success.


      It’s amazing, isn’t it? 😘

  14. Madtho January 12, 2017

    You silly queens compare streams to actual sales to make a point. It’s 2017 get with the flow, rihanna is breaking down barrier’s and the first to do most things as Beyonce fans shop at Walmart for CDs. Like artist, like fans brings nothing new. Same olé s***… 😒👍
