The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” Joins “Heartless” In Top 2 On US iTunes Sales Chart

The Weeknd is dominating on iTunes.

Since its release earlier this week, The Weeknd’s “Heartless” has occupied the #1 position on the US iTunes sales chart.

As of Friday, its closest competition is coming from another The Weeknd song.

The artist’s new “Blinding Lights” soared to #2 following its release Friday, and it remains in that position as of 10AM ET Friday morning. It will be interesting to see if it can challenge for #1 as Friday progresses.

Post Malone’s “Circles” (#3), Maroon 5’s “Memories” (#4), and Lizzo’s “Good As Hell” (#5) complete the Top 5.
