    Despite a premature celebration on Twitter, The Weeknd’s Kiss Land did not top theBillboard 200 albums chart this week, but it wasn’t far off. The Toronto crooner’s album debuted at No. 2 with 96,000 first-week copies sold — less than 3,000 behind Keith Urban’s Fuse, which came out on top with a rounded figure of 98,000 sales.
    Meanwhile, 2 Chainz’s B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time landed at No. 3 with more modest first-week sales of 63,000. Last year’s debut, Based on a T.R.U. Story, topped the charts with 147,000 copies shifted. Finally, Janelle MonĂ¡e scored her best sales week and first top 10 album after The Electric Lady sold 47,000 units to claim the No. 5 spot.
