The Weeknd is clearly having his moment, but upon closer review it's impressive just how dominating the crooner is ruling the charts.

According to Billboard, Abel Tesfaye is topping the Hot 100, Billboard 200 and Artist 100. That makes the Canadian star the first male to do so at one time in the history of all three charts existence.

Projects also estimate that The Weeknd will top the Billboard 200 chart for a third straight week on the strength of his hit singles "Can't Feel My Face" and "The Hills."

Prior to the Artist 100 chart, Michael Jackson, Nelly, Usher, Eminem and Justin Timberlake were the only male acts to simultaneously top the Hot 100 and Billboard 200.
