Congrats are in order for The Weeknd, who has taken the next step in his career, both with an evolved sound and also numerically with the new album, Kiss Land. His album debuted at #2, narrowly behind Keith Urban's Fuse with the rounded figures coming to 98K vs. 95K. 2 Chainz debuted at #3 with his new album, Boats II: Me Time, pulling in 63K (highly shy of his 147K debut with Based On A T.R.U. Story, but the general album sales decline in between is part the cause there). Janelle Monae's Electric Lady came in at #5 with 47K sold — her first top 10 debut (I feel like more people should be buying this!)
My favorite album of the flurry that has been released these past couple months is turning out to be Kiss Land. Be sure to cop this if you've even been a casual fan of The Weeknd up until this point. Rounding the post out is an #InstaVideo of Drake congratulating The Weeknd on the new album.
