The Weeknd’s new album After Hours had the biggest debut of 2020 and has returned to no. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart for the second week in a row. He was in a pretty good company — Dua Lipa scored her first top 5 album in the US with her new record Future Nostalgia.

After having a spectacular debut week, After Hours returned to the top of the chart with 138,000 album-equivalent units earned in its second week. 5 Seconds in Summer came in second with Calm, while Lil Uzi Vert took the third spot with his latest album Eternal Atake.

Dua Lipa charted at no. 4 with her new LP Future Nostalgia, and it was a big triumph for the “New Rules” singer. This is her highest-charting album in the US so far since her debut record only reached no. 27 on Billboard 200 chart back in 2017.

Billboard Hot 100 didn’t experience a significant shakeup this week, and the top three spots remained unchanged. The Weeknd topped the chart with “Blinding Lights”, Roddy Ricch was right behind with “The Box”, while Dua Lipa came in third with “Don’t Start Now”.
