Wow, The Weeknd sold more than 2 Chainz and Janelle? I did not think he had more fans than them, actually surprises me

He doesn't have "more" fans I don't think, but he has a fairly large and incredibly dedicated cult-like fanbase, aka people who will actually buy his records.

I could see that, still somewhat surprising I'd say

Enough to debut at #43.

Not shocked by The Weeknd. His fans are fanatical and I also know people who wanted the vinyl so badly that they pre-ordered the CD just to get first crack at the LP.

2 Chainz just didn't have a single with traction.
