    The Weeknd debuts, unsurprisingly, at number one on the Billboard charts this week.

    The Weeknd blasts in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with his new album, Starboy, earning 348,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Dec. 1, according to Nielsen Music. That’s the third-largest debut of 2016, behind only the arrivals of Drake’s Views (1.04 million units) and Beyonce’s Lemonade (653,000). Of the Weeknd’s overall start, 209,000 were in traditional album sales.
