The Weeknd’s ‘Beauty Behind The Madness’ Debuts 11 of 14 Songs on Billboard Hot 100

The Weeknd can’t take a loss this year. The R&B singer is seeing massive success with his new album Beauty Behind The Madness, which debuted at #1 with massive first week sales. With the Billboard Hot 100 & its other charts updating today, we got wave that 11 of the 14 songs on his new album have charted in the Billboard Hot 100, which is absurd. This feat makes Abel the six artist in Billboard history to have ten or more songs charting at once on the Billboard Hot 100, and he is the first male artist to have two of the top three songs on the Billboard Hot 100 since T.I. did it in 2008, as ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ is currently #2 & ‘The Hills’ is currently #3.

Along with that accomplishment, the whole album has charted the R&B/Hip-Hop chart. This week, ten of the album cuts joined the chart along with the already charting single ‘The Hills’ & ‘Cant Feel My Face’. With ‘Often’ & ‘Earned It’ also charting earlier this year, which marks all 14 songs charting on the chart. With 12 concurrent singles on the chart right now, Abel breaks the record for most appearances on the chart at once for a non-rapper. And just to add this statistic in, the 12 singles on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart (excluding ‘Often’ & ‘Earned It’) were streamed 77 million times this week in the United States album.

Congrats to Abel and his team for the tremendous success in their pre-release & first week. It is now post-release promo time, and expect this album to have some serious legs.
