There was an era in The Weeknd‘s currently-ongoing era of fame where his music and image were kept under wraps- deliberately sequestered in what was very well one of the most mysterious voices in R&B. It served its purpose and furthered the image his lyricism was already doing: creating a murky, melancholic photograph of hookup and drug culture, and its unapologetic taboos and intricacies. About five years later, the same niche subjects are now littered across Billboard‘s charts and sounding out in people’s ears.
Starboy was released a short two weeks ago, and the 18 track long album has officially charted every single song on Billboard’s Hot 100 lists. The flux of Nu-Disco, Funk, R&B, and Soul was clearly a delight for music appreciators and music publications alike considering the success of the still newly released album.
Starboy is the only album to have this feat other than Drake‘s Views which charted all 20 songs back when it was released in May. “Starboy,” the album’s earliest released track, leads the other tracks at the #2 spot, followed by “Party Monster,” the album’s second track, at #16. “Sidewalks” with Kendrick Lamar landed on the #27 spot, and “All I Know” and “Ordinary Life” landed the #46 and #72 spots respectively.
According to HipHopDX, The Weeknd also broke Spotify’s record for being the most streamed artist in a single day, with 223 million streams.
