The Weeknd scores his third No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 (dated April 14), as My Dear Melancholy opens with 169,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music, and he has even more reason to celebrate: All six tracks from the album debut on the Billboard Hot 100.

The set’s opening track, “Call Out My Name,” starts highest, at No. 4 on the Hot 100, powered most heavily by its No. 2 entrance on the Streaming Songs chart (40.4 million U.S. streams), as well as its No. 4 arrival on Digital Song Sales (36,000downloads sold). The track is his eighth Hot 100 top 10 and his highest debut.


The set’s six songs join The Weeknd’s “Pray for Me,” with Kendrick Lamar, at No. 15 on the Hot 100 (after reaching No. 7). The song is from the soundtrack Black Panther: The Album, which spent three weeks atop the Billboard 200.

Here’s a look at all of The Weeknd’s songs on the new, April 14-dated Hot 100:

Hot 100 Rank, Title
No. 4, “Call Out My Name”
No. 15, “Pray for Me,” with Kendrick Lamar
No. 26, “Try Me”
No. 27, “Wasted Times”
No. 35, “I Was Never There,” featuring Gesaffelstein
No. 43, “Hurt You,” featuring Gesaffelstein
No. 52, “Privilege”

This isn’t the first time an entire album by The Weeknd has infiltrated the Hot 100. When his last set, Starboy, debuted atop the Billboard 200 on Dec. 17, 2016, all 18 of its tracks appeared on the Hot 100. Only Drake has scored more simultaneous entries on the Hot 100: a staggering 24, on April 8, 2017.

Further, The Weeknd has now tallied 50 total entries on the Hot 100, dating to his first, “Crew Love,” with Drake, on April 7, 2012. The debuts from My Dear Melancholy tie him with two other R&B/pop stars each with 50 appearances: Michael Jackson and Usher. (The Weeknd is the 39th act to reach the milestone.)

Drake holds the record for the most Hot 100 entries among soloists: 161.
