The Weeknd is making waves on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart: he’s become the first artist to claim the top three slots.

According to the publication, the singer is dominating the nearly three-year-old chart as “Can’t Feel My Face” sits at number 1 followed by “The Hills” at number 2 and “Earned It” at number 3.

The Weeknd now has surpassed Robin Thicke, who is the only other act to have held two out of the top three spots on the chart — when “Blurred Lines,” featuring T.I. and Pharrell, and “Give It 2 You,” featuring Kendrick Lamar, held the numbers 1 and 3 spots for three weeks in 2013.

The news comes on the heels of The Weeknd announcing that his new album, Beauty Behind the Madness, will arrive August 28 and is available for pre-order now.
