The Weeknd is officially the man to beat on the charts.
As if dominating the top 10 for most of the summer with hits ‘The Hills’ and ‘Earned It’ wasn’t enough, he’s now added ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ – his first #1 single on the Hot 100 – to the bunch. Yes, he may have known temporary dethronement last week as Justin Bieber‘s comeback single ‘What Do You Mean’ knocked ‘Face’ from the top spot…but that was then.
Roaring back to the perch of the Hot 100, The Weeknd’s return is accompanied by news his sophomore LP ‘Beauty Behind the Madness’ will probably enjoy a third week at #1 on the Billboard 200. The feat makes him the first solo male artist in history to simultaneously be #1 on the Artist 100, Hot 100, and Billboard 200.
The Weeknd‘s “Can’t Feel My Face” rebounds 2-1 for a third nonconsecutive week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It replaces Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?,” which falls 1-3 after debuting atop the chart last week. Meanwhile,The Weeknd claims the Hot 100’s top two spots, as “The Hills” rises 3-2, making him the first act to rank at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously, as a lead act on both songs, since 2009. (source)
