The Weeknd Earns First No. 1 with ‘Can’t Feel My Face’

The Weeknd is on top. The Canadian crooner scores his first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Can’t Feel My Face.”

After spending three weeks at No. 2, the Max Martin-produced song becomes the 1,045th No. 1 in the history of the chart. It also tops the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for a fourth week.

He dethrones OMI’s “Cheerleader,” which drops to No. 2 on the Hot 100 after four weeks in the No. 1 spot.

In the past year, The Weeknd has claimed three top 10s including “Love Me Harder” with Ariana Grande, which reached No. 7 in November 2014, “Earned It” off the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack (No. 3 in May), and “The Hills” (No. 10).

“Can’t Feel My Face” can be found on The Weeknd’s sophomore album, Beauty Behind the Madness, which drops Aug. 28. The project also features collaborations with Lana Del Rey, Ed Sheeran, and Labrinth.
