The boost in The Weeknd’s numbers came with the release of his fifth studio album, “Dawn FM.” Billboard notes that the album sold 274,000 units in first-week sales, with more than 100,000 physical copies sold. “The impact of Dawn FM speaks to The Weeknd’s undeniable global appeal and further reinforces the healing power of music,” Monte Lipman, CEO of Republic Records said in a statement to the outlet. “The non-traditional rollout represents Abel’s pure dedication to his fans by making new music available in real time.
