So far, all of Shawn’s full-length studio albums have debuted at No.1 with ‘Wonder’ taking over a heavy hitter, Ariana Grande’s ‘Positions’ which now sits at #3. Wonder was led by its title track which peaked at No.18 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No.14 on the Pop Songs airplay chart. Wonder’s second single ‘Monster’ which featured Justin Bieber, has so far peaked at No.8 on the Hot 100 and No.19 on the Pop Songs airplay chart.
Although the numbers of ‘Wonder’ is much lesser than that of his third studio album (which earned 182,000 units in its first week), Mendes soars high at #1 and that’s no easy task considering his competitors.
Congrats Shawn Mendes.
