Chart Check [Billboard 200]: The Weeknd’s ‘Star Boy’ Bounces Back To #1

the weeknd thatgrapejuice starboy #1

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:

Chart Check [Billboard Hot 100]: The Weeknd’s ‘Starboy’ Bumped From #1

the-weeknd-starboy-thatgrapejuice-billboard-hot-100-1

As reported here, The Weeknd‘s ‘Starboy’ was behind Rae Sremmurd‘s #1 hit, ‘Black Beatles,’ on the Hot 100 for so long it actually tied the all-time record for most consecutive weeks at #2.  Finally, after a $.69 iTunes sale, the Daft Punk-assisted tune finally ascended to #1 last week, giving Weeknd his third chart-topper.

Now, as the refreshed Hot 100 reveals, that sale may have been just what the doctor ordered to get him to #1, but it damn sure wasn’t enough to keep him there.  For, after just 1 week of topping the tally, he’s already been ousted from its perch.

Curious to see who its new occupant is?  Tuck in below to see and also find out whom among your faves landed in this week’s new TGJ Chart Check:  Hot 100…

Chart Check [Hot 100]: The Weeknd Finally Ascends To #1 With ‘Starboy’

the-weeknd-starboy-thatgrapejuice-billboard-hot-100-1

Thanks to a $.69 “holiday sale” on iTunes, ‘Earned It’ singer The Weeknd (born Abel Tesfaye) has finally earned his third #1 single on the Hot 100.

14 weeks after its debut (and after a lengthy 8-week run at #2 behind rap duo Rae Sremmurd‘s smash single ‘Black Beatles’), ‘Starboy’ – the title track to Tesfaye’s third album (which hit #1 on the Billboard 200) – ascended to the tally’s perch on the wings of strong digital downloads and streaming performance.  Billboard reports:

[‘Starboy’ logged] the chart’s greatest week-over-week sales gain (up 28,000), surging by 49 percent to 86,000 downloads sold in the week ending Dec. 22. “Starboy” tops the Hot 100 after eight nonconsecutive weeks at No. 2, tying for the most weeks spent at No. 2 before leading the list. It matches Justin Bieber‘s “Sorry,” which ruled at last on the Jan. 23, 2016, chart, and OutKast‘s “The Way You Move,” featuring Sleepy Brown (Feb. 14, 2004).”

Congratz are certainly in order for Weeknd and his ‘Starboy’ co-stars Daft Punk.  The achievement marks the group’s first run at #1 in the U.S.

Ratings: ‘Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show’ Hits All-Time Low

gaga-bruno-weeknd-1

The cat-walk may have been blessed with its fair share of angels, but not even they could perform the miracle of saving the ratings for this year’s ‘Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.’

This year’s showing, which featured show-stopping performances from Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, and The Weeknd, not only saw its viewership not meet expectations, but it fell lower than last year’s (which was the franchise’s previous lowest sum).

Tuck in below to see exactly how many tuned in:

Chart Check [Hot 100]: The Weeknd’s ‘Starboy’ Charts All 18 of Its Songs

Canadian Crooner Only Fourth Artist To Achieve Historic Feat

 

starboy-thatgrapejuice-hot-100-new-album-weeknd

If you thought the chart domination of The Weeknd’s new album, ‘Starboy,’ was limited to the Billboard 200, you are sorely mistaken.

For, much like his fellow Canadian entertainer/‘Live For’ co-star Drake, The Weeknd – whose real name is Abel Tesfaye – has made history as the fourth artist (second male vocalist) to ever simultaneously place every song from one album on the Hot 100.

Billboard reports:

Additionally, all 18 songs from Starboy chart on the Hot 100; with 18 total tracks on the Dec. 17 chart, The Weeknd posts the second-most simultaneous entries in the Hot 100’s 58-year history; only Drake tallied more at the same time: 20 on the May 21 chart. 

Find out where they (and all your other favorites from the day) landed on the refreshed TGJ Chart Check [Hot 100] below:

Chart Check [Billboard 200]: The Weeknd Nabs 3rd Biggest Opening Week of 2016 With ‘Starboy’

starboy-thatgrapejuice-weeknd-billboard-200

Thanks to an onslaught of promotional appearances that (to date) have included ‘SNL,’ The American Music Awards, ‘Ellen,’ the ‘Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,’ and European Music Awards, The Weeknd‘s third album, ‘Starboy,’ has not only lent his largest first week sales to date, but also gives him the third largest premiere of the year (only behind Drake‘s ‘Views’ and Beyonce‘s ‘Lemonade’).

Despite failing to meet initial predictions of 400,000 units moved, the singer’s handsome sum still gave him just enough to place him at #1 for this week’s Billboard 200.

Billboard reports:

The Weeknd blasts in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with his new album, Starboy, earning 348,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Dec. 1, according to Nielsen Music. Of the Weeknd’s overall start, 209,000 were in traditional album sales.

Starboy, the Weeknd’s second Billboard 200 No. 1, was released on Nov. 25 through XO/Republic Records and is the follow-up to his first leader, Beauty Behind the Madness. The new set was initially released commercially as a download and through streaming services. Its CD release followed three days later on Nov. 28.’
