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.
