These days the Billboard charts are all about The Weeknd as the R&B crooner has inked his name in the history books as the first male artist to be No. 1 on Billboard’s 200, Hot 100 and Artist 100 simultaneously.
Canadian born artist Abel Tesfaye has number one hit songs on 14 different charts, topping himself on the Hot 100 list as his single The Hills hits No. 1 this week. AbelXO sends a shout out to his fans on Instagram posting, “Thanks to the fans The Hills just hit number one on Billboard, stealing the number one spot from ourselves.” With over 206 million Vevo views in four months, no wonder the song holds the No. 1 spot on all the following Billboard charts:
- Streaming Songs
- Hot R&B / Hip Hop Songs
- R&B / Hip Hop Airplay
- R&B / Hip Hop Digital Songs
- R&B / Hip Hop Streaming Songs
- Hot R&B Songs
- R&B Streaming Songs
- Rhythmic Songs
Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda may still have the most Vevo video views to date but The Hills has the highest number of shares on YouTube for this one.
The singer / songwriter’s sophomore studio album Beauty Behind the Madness came out the gate strong last month and has hit the top of every chart worldwide from Australia to New Zealand.
Whether it’s his catchy voice or his drug induced lyrics this Republic Records artist has made his label XO a name to be remembered.
TW set the stage on fire at the iHeartRadio Music Festival this weekend rocking his signature all black attire while performing Billboard’s No. 1 Radio Song Can’t Feel My Face. Although he’s not known for wearing designer fashion, The Weeknd has released an album merchandise collection that is now available at shop.theweeknd.com.
Fans can rock black, white and yellow hoodies, t-shirts, skull caps and more as they enjoy his upcoming fall tour The Weeknd The Madness starting out at the Air Candida Centre in November. Add The Weeknd to any weekend playlist and the party will top the charts too.
