Drake Views Leads Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart For 6 Consecutive Weeks

Drake‘s VIEWS album is No. 1 again this week on Billboard‘s “Top 200 Albums” chart, which makes it six consecutive weeks that it has been in the top spot!

According to Nielsen Music, Drizzy Drake‘s latest project VIEWS sold 135,000 units this past week – 81,000 in streaming, 32,000 in traditional album sales, and 22,000 in track equivalent album units.

The last male artist to have his album No. 1 on the chart for six weeks in a row was 50 Cent with The Massacre back in 2005. Eminem also has seven non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 with his Recovery album in 2010, so do you think Drizzy can grab that accomplishment next?

Drake’s “Views” & “One Dance” Lead Billboard’s “Top 200 Albums” & “Hot 100” Charts For Consecutive Weeks

Drake Views & One Dance Lead Billboard Top 200 Albums & Hot 100 Charts For Consecutive Weeks

Drake‘s latest studio album, VIEWS, has now been #1 on the Billboard “Top 200 Albums” chart for 5 weeks in a row after selling 152,000 units this past week.

Some more great news for Drizzy is that his “One Dance” single featuring Kyla and Wizkid is also still No. 1 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” chart. This makes it the 6 God‘s third week in a row at #1, but four weeks non-consecutively.

This last music artist to lead Billboard’s “Top 200 Albums” and “Hot 100” charts was Adele with her 25 album and “Hello” single. However, she did this for 6 weeks, so do you think Drizzy Drake can keep it going that long? 50 Cent was also the last rapper to have this achievement with The Massacre and “Candy Shop” back in 2005!

Nicki Minaj’s Speech After Winning Her Awards At The 2012 AMAs [Videos]

I recently posted that Nicki Minaj had won two awards at the 40th annual American Music Awards, now here is some actual footage of the Barbie picking up both of her awards at the show, which took place on November 18th at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, California.

In the clip above, Nicki can be seen giving a speech with Tyga behind her after being handed an award for “Favorite Artist – Rap/Hip-Hop” by 50 Cent and Hayden Panettiere. After the jump, you can watch Minaj give a speech after picking up her “Favorite Album – Rap/Hip-Hop” award for Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded from Ne-Yo and Stacy Keibler.

At the end of the 2012 AMAs, rumors have been spreading online saying that Nicki Minaj and Drake have had a falling out. If you watched the awards show, you would of noticed that Nicki walked straight past Drizzy to give Tyga a hug, Drizzy looking sad throughout the whole show, and Nicki only bringing up Tyga to the stage when she won her award. I am not sure if this rumor is true or not, but I really hope it isn’t, or if it is, then Lil Wayne makes them both sort it out!
