        • "Blinding Lights" is predicted to top the Hot 100 this week. That would be huge! Two #1 singles, a #1 album, great first-week sales even during these circumstances and a #1 album and single at the same time.

            The Weeknd's 'Blinding Lights' vs. Roddy Ricch's 'The Box' for No. 1 on Hot 100 Next Week
            3/27/2020 by Gary Trust

            Roddy Ricch's "The Box" and The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" appear set to battle for No. 1 on next week's Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated April 4).

            The former has led for 11 weeks running, while the latter rises 4-2, hitting a new high, on the most recently published, March 28-dated list.

            The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and digital sales data.

            According to projections based on building Nielsen Music/MRC Data figures, "The Box" (released on Bird Vision/Atlantic Records) could draw over 60 million in airplay audience, 30 million U.S. streams and 5,000 downloads sold in the latest tracking week.

            "Blinding Lights" (on XO/Republic) could sport over 75 million in radio reach, 25 million streams and 10,000 sold. Bolstering its profile, parent album After Hours arrived March 20 and could launch atop the Billboard 200 with over 425,000 equivalent album units, marking the biggest week for an album so far this year.

            The top 10 of the April 4-dated Hot 100 is scheduled to be revealed Monday (March 30), with all charts updating on Billboard.com Tuesday (March 31).

                      The Weeknd’s ‘After Hours’ Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart With Biggest Week of 2020
                      3/29/2020 by Keith Caulfield

                      The Weeknd rocks the top of the Billboard 200 albums chart, as he scores his fourth No. 1 album with his latest release, After Hours. The set jumps in with the year’s biggest week for any album: 444,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending March 26, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The sum also marks The Weeknd’s personal weekly best.

                      After Hours was released on March 20 via XO/Republic Records, and is The Weeknd’s first release since his chart-topping six-song EP My Dear Melancholy in 2018.

                      The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new April 4-dated chart (where After Hours enters at No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard's website on March 31.

                      After Hours’ first week total of 444,000 equivalent album units comprises 275,000 in album sales, 163,000 in SEA units and 6,000 in TEA units. The album’s SEA sum equates to 220.7 million on-demand streams of the set’s tracks in its first week.

                      After Hours’ streaming start was so big, the album would have been No. 1 on the Billboard 200 even if it hadn’t sold a single copy. The No. 2 album on the chart is Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake, which falls to No. 2 after two weeks at No. 1, with 115,000 units (down 53%, with 113,000 of that sum in SEA units).

                      After Hours includes the hits “Heartless,” “Blinding Lights” and the set’s title track. “Heartless” hit No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 dated Dec. 14, 2019 (his fourth No. 1), while “Blinding Lights” rose to a new peak of No. 2 on the most recently published Hot 100 (dated March 28). “After Hours” reached No. 20 on March 7.

                      Let’s take a closer look at some of the achievements The Weeknd earns with his newest No. 1 album:

                      Biggest Overall Week of 2020: After Hours’ debut frame of 444,000 units outpaces the year’s previous high-water mark, tallied by the debut of BTS’ Map of the Soul: 7. It entered at No. 1 on the March 7-dated list with 422,000 units.

                      The Weeknd’s Biggest Week Ever: After Hours also clocks The Weeknd’s single largest week for an album. It surpasses the 412,000-unit start of Beauty Behind the Madness at No. 1 on the Sept. 19, 2015-dated chart.

                      A Fourth No. 1: After Hours is The Weeknd’s fourth No. 1 album, and fourth in a row. It follows My Dear Melancholy (one week at No. 1, 2018), Starboy (five weeks at No. 1, 2016-17) and Beauty Behind the Madness (three weeks at No. 1, 2015).

                      2020’s Second-Biggest Sales Week: Album sales powered 62% of After Hours’ first week: 275,000 of 444,000 units. Those sales were driven largely by by a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer with The Weeknd’s upcoming tour (scheduled to launch in June), as well as more than 80 different merchandise/album bundles sold through The Weeknd’s official website. The largest sales week of 2020 remains the debut of BTS’ Map of the Soul: 7, with 347,000 sold in its first week. (Map didn’t have a ticket/album offer, nor any merchandise/album bundles – though it was released in four elaborate collectible CD packages.)

                      After Hours also starts at No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart, The Weeknd’s fourth leader on that tally.

                      Biggest Week for an R&B Album in Nearly Four Years: After Hours’ big debut of 444,000 units is the largest week posted by an R&B album in nearly four years. The last R&B set to score a bigger week was Beyoncι’s Lemonade, which blasted in at No. 1 on the May 14, 2016-dated chart with 653,000 units. After Hours also lands the biggest week for an R&B album by a male artist since the chart began ranking album by equivalent album units in December 2014.

                      Biggest Streaming Week Ever for an R&B Album: With 220.7 million on-demand streams registered for After Hours’ songs in its first week, the album logs the largest streaming week ever for an R&B effort. It beats The Weeknd’s own Starboy, which launched with 175.2 million clicks (Dec. 17, 2016-dated chart).

                        80 different merch/album bundles?
                        Might be some kind of new record.

                        • Since the tour clearly won't take place what about the ticket bundle copies? Will they still count despite people getting their money back?

                              This is what I want to know too.

                              EDIT: Though the fact that the album price has to be baked into the ticket for the redemption to count for BB200, they could just return the amount minus the album price for the people who redeemed the album. That would work and everything stays. Except some people being potentially pissed off because they aren't getting the full refund.

                                https://www.billboard.com/articles/b...er-one-hot-100

                                The Weeknd's 'Blinding Lights' Hits No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100, Doja Cat's 'Say So' Enters Top 10
                                3/30/2020 by Gary Trust

                                The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" lifts from No. 2 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, becoming the pop/R&B singer-songwriter-producer's fifth leader on the list.

                                The track is from The Weeknd's new LP After Hours, which soars in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, marking his fourth leading title, as the set starts with the most equivalent album units earned in a week so far this year.

                                Let's run down of the top 10 of the newest Hot 100, which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated April 4) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (March 31).

                                "Lights," released on XO/Republic Records, becomes the 1,097th No. 1 in the history of the Hot 100, which launched on Aug. 4, 1958.

                                The Weeknd's fifth Hot 100 No. 1 follows After Hours lead single "Heartless," which led the Dec. 14, 2019-dated chart, and this week soars 16-4; "Starboy," featuring Daft Punk (one week, January 2017); "The Hills" (six weeks, October-November 2015); and "Can't Feel My Face" (three weeks, August-September 2015).

                                Since his first week at No. 1, on Aug. 22, 2015, The Weeknd ties Justin Bieber and Drake for the most Hot 100 leaders.

                                "Lights" concurrently becomes The Weeknd's second No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart (after "The Hills"), surging 5-1, up 54% to 32.1 million U.S. streams in the week ending March 26, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It pushes 5-3 on Radio Songs, gaining by 15% to 82.2 million all-format airplay audience impressions in the week ending March 29, while ranking at No. 3 on Digital Song Sales (after it led the March 28-dated chart), with 15,000 sold.

                                "Lights" spends a fifth week atop the Hot R&B Songs chart, where it's The Weeknd's seventh No. 1, and becomes his sixth No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (with both rankings employing the same multi-metric methodology as the Hot 100).

                                The Weeknd (real name: Abel Tesfaye) adds his third Hot 100 No. 1 as a co-producer and has co-written all five of his leaders as an artist.

                                Meanwhile, "Lights" was co-written and co-produced by, among others, pop titan Max Martin, who earns his 23rd Hot 100 No. 1 as a writer. In the Hot 100's archives, only Paul McCartney (32) and John Lennon (26) have notched more, thanks to their histories in The Beatles and as soloists. Martin had last led as a writer via Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling!," for a week in May 2016.

                                Martin earns his 21st Hot 100 No. 1 as a producer, and also his first in that role since Timberlake's "Feeling." The sum is second only to that of another acclaimed Martin: late Beatles producer Sir George Martin, who totaled 23 (last thanks to Elton John's 14-week 1997-98 No. 1 "Candle in the Wind"/"Something About the Way You Look Tonight").

                                The Weeknd's "Heartless" at No. 4 on the Hot 100 (up 157% to 19.4 million streams),

                                    The Weeknd's 'After Hours' Could Spend Second Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart
                                    3/30/2020 by Keith Caulfield

                                    Plus: 5 Seconds of Summer, Pearl Jam, Dua Lipa looking to make waves in next week’s top 10.

                                    After The Weeknd’s After Hours made a splashy debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart -- with the biggest week of 2020 for any album -- it looks like it could spend a second week atop the tally.

                                    The set blasted in atop the chart dated April 4 with 444,000 units earned in the week ending March 26, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

                                    As for After Hours’ second week, it’s still early in the tracking week (which began Friday, March 27), but forecasters suggest After Hours could earn over 100,000 equivalent album units or more in the U.S. in the week ending April 2. That will likely be enough for the set to hold at No. 1 for a second stanza.

                                    Helping After Hours’ second week will be the addition of three new songs to a deluxe edition of the album ("Nothing Compares," "Missed You" and "Final Lullaby"). The three new tunes appeared on the set first thing Monday morning (March 30) and will certainly drive additional streaming activity toward the album. All versions of the album are combined together for tracking and charting purposes.

                                    After Hours will also continue to benefit from more than 90 merchandise/album bundles currently available to purchase in The Weeknd’s official website, as well as sales generated by a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer with his upcoming tour.

                                    The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the April 11-dated Billboard 200 chart (where After Hours could hold at No. 1) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s website on Sunday, April 5.

                                      • Nice 2nd week prediction.
                                        “Only” 77% drop is fine considering how inflated were first week numbers from ticket and merch bundles.
                                        Above 80% is the new normal in these cases.
