The good times just keep on rolling for Canadian R&B singer The Weeknd.

The “Can’t Feel My Face” singer’s album Beauty Behind The Madness managed to hold off five new releases to maintain its position atop the Billboard 200 chart for the third week in a row.

Beauty Behind the Madness is the first album to spend three weeks at No. 1 since Taylor Swift’s 1989 put together a non-consecutive 11-week run including three straight weeks on the throne between Jan. 10 and Jan. 24.

In addition to the continued dominance of his album, The Weeknd also made history this week as his single “The Hills” unseated his other single “Can’t Feel My Face” for top slot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making him just the 11th person in history to replace himself at No. 1 on that chart, and the first male artist to do it since TIP (formerly T.I.) did it back in 2008.
