The year of The Weeknd continues as the Toronto singer makes more Billboard history today.
“The Hills” becomes his second #1 single from Beauty Behind The Madness on the Billboard Hot 100… replacing himself.
Last week, “Can’t Feel My Face” was #1 and “The Hills” was #2. This week, “Hills” is #1 and “Can’t Feel My Face” is number 3. Justin Bieber is in the middle at #2 and with Drake & Future about to debut at #1 in albums with a projected 500K in first week sales… Toronto is really runnin’ this shit, huh?
(T.I. did this same Billboard feat in 2008 and Taylor Swift consecutively just last year.)
I like “The Hills” a lot more than “Can’t Feel My Face” so I’m happy to see it get its own #1 shine. The Chicago twist to this song is that Mano is among the co-producers.
Now if Weeknd really wanted to make it three #1 singles, he’d push for “In The Night” next… but that’s just my preference.
