Adele may be the name on everyone’s lips now, but if there is to be any other person we can say had ‘the best year ever,’ it would be The Weeknd.
The Canadian crooner not only topped the Hot 100 back-to-back with hits ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ and ‘The Hills,’ but also hoisted their parent album, ‘Beauty Behind the Madness,’ to equal height on the Billboard 200. Making history as the first solo male artist to simultaneously top the Artist 100, Hot 100, and Billboard 200, his continued domination of the charts this week saw him add yet another history-making feat to a wildly growing list of accomplishments.
Find out what it is below:
The Weeknd has been a mainstay in the Billboard Hot 100’s top 10 for most of 2015. This week, with his hit ‘The Hills,’ the singer/songwriter notched his 42nd consecutive week on the tally’s upper dectet. The milestone makes him the youngest male artist in history to do so (tying for third place overall).
