TOP 20: AFTER EFFECT

The Weeknd will easily land at #1 this week, with a total that could become his largest debut thus far. After Hours may surpass the first week of Beauty Behind the Madness, which opened with 411k in total activity in September 2015. And while neither is a done deal just yet, sights are also set on surpassing the biggest start yet in 2020—422k set by BTS.

In other chart news, The Best of Kenny Rogers lands in the Top 15 after the star's passing. Debuts from The Weeknd and Conan Gray give Republic a possible three in the Top 10.
