There was some debate as to whether The Weeknd should even drop his album After Hours on Friday, given the way the Coronavirus is disrupting everything.
Like Lil Uzi Vert, Abel has proven that the virus is no match for his hitmaking. In fact, Hits Daily Double is projecting After Hours will do over 400K first week, challenging the 422K South Korean boy banders BTS put up earlier this year for the biggest opening of the year.
Weeknd's last two albums 2016's Starboy and 2015 Beauty Behind The Madness did 348K and 412K, respectively.
Did you hear any good albums this week?
