The Weeknd

2020 took an unexpected turn when the coronavirus pandemic hit, but at least some of our favorite artists had already given us some great music to listen to while we're at home.

"Don't Start Now," "Physical" and more tracks from Dua Lipa's disco-pop sophomore album Future Nostalgia are leading current top 40 radio by sounding like a thing of the past in the best way possible. Similarly, The Weeknd's retro-sounding No. 2 hit "Blinding Lights" and the rest of his After Hours album have kept fans up after hours listening to the R&B crooner's latest project. Not only could it secure the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200, After Hours could also log this year's largest debut week for any album.

Lil Uzi Vert blasted to the top of the Billboard 200 last week (chart dated March 21) with Eternal Atake, as his extraterrestrial escapist project earned 288,000 equivalent album units. He logged the second-biggest opening week for an album in 2020, with BTS currently holding the record for biggest debut week in 2020 with Map of the Soul: 7 scoring 422,000 units.

Bad Bunny's YHLQMDLG is also one for the books this year after the Puerto Rican rapper earned the highest-charting all-Spanish-language album ever with a No. 2 spot on the all-genre tally, as well as the biggest streaming week for a Latin album with 201.4 million on-demand streams and the biggest week for a Latin release in equivalent album units earned with 179,000 units.

So which album will you have on repeat during the season of social distancing? Vote below!
