THE WEEKND DEBUTS FIVE SONGS BACK TO BACK
The Weeknd debuted five songs in the top 10 of Billboard’s On-Demand Streaming Songs from his new Billboard 200-topping album My Dear Melancholy. “Call Out My Name,” the first single, debuted at No. 1 on the April 14-dated list with 32.2 million on-demand audio streams, according to Nielsen Music.
He becomes the first artist to debut five songs simultaneously in the top 10 of the chart since Kendrick Lamar, who launched eight into the region on the May 6, 2017-dated ranking (all from DAMN., which also bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 the same week). Following “Call,” “Try Me” and “Wasted Times” debut at Nos. 3 and 4 with 21.3 and 19.6 million on-demand audio streams “I Was Never There” (17.7 million) and “Hurt You” (14.9 million) -- debut at Nos. 7 and 9.
It’s the third time The Weeknd has been able to secure at least five songs in the top five of On-Demand Streaming Songs simultaneously.
