Chart Check [Hot 100]: ‘Gasoline,’ ‘Sacrifice’ Lead Slew of New Top 40 Hits for The Weeknd

Published: Friday 21st Jan 2022 by Rashad

The Weeknd‘s ‘Dawn FM’ may have marked his first album in nearly 10 years to miss the Billboard 200’s top spot upon its premiere (as we reported here), but the narrow defeat was still accompanied by a number of notable wins on the Hot 100.

Ahead of the LP’s January 7 release, the singer (born Abel Tesfaye) – with 77 career-wide chart entries to his credit – was already listed in the hit list’s history books among male vocalists with the most cumulative Hot 100 appearances.  With ‘Dawn FM,’ however, he forwarded his ranking on that all-time tally as he placed 14 of the project’s 16 tracks on this week’s singles chart (6 in the top 40 alone).

Hop inside to see which of the set’s fan favorites made the cut.

On this week’s Adele-dominated Hot 100, Tesfaye tallied six new top 40 hits from ‘Dawn’ – #11 (Sacrifice’), #29 (‘Gasoline’), #31 (‘Is There Someone Else?’), #32 (‘Out Of Time’) and #39 (‘How Do I Make You Love Me?’).

Alongside the #22 re-entry of the previously top 10-peaking hit ‘Take My Breath,’ Abel was also found at #52 (‘Here We Go… Again’). #53 (‘Less Than Zero’), #60 (‘Best Friends’), #62 (‘I Heard You’re Married‘), and #65 (‘Dawn FM’ – the title track).

The additions bring his career-long Hot 100 hit total to 91 songs (45 of them in the top 40).  Among male vocalists, only Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, and Elvis Presley have more entries on the hitlist.  When pared down to ‘most top 40 hits’ among male vocalists, however, only Presley, Brown, Bieber, and Elton John have more.

As his fans celebrate the win, look below to see who joined Tesfaye on this week’s TGJ Chart Check.

    Lol man and his fans think he’s Michael Jackson but in less than a year after he headlined the Super Bowl his next album couldn’t even debut at number one or produce a top 10 single.

    That horrible Super Bowl performance may have opened people eyes at how generic of a performer and vocalist he is.

    His problem is over confidence.
    Even Taylor isnt over confident. She heard adele was releasing the same week as her, so she moved her date up and scored a number 1 album.

    Gunna announced his album first and picked that date first. The weeknd should have picked another date just to be safe but he didn’t, now see how that turned out. Smh

    Gunna is riding that “I blocked the weeknd from the number 1 spot” train. I love that for him.
