Drake Views Is Back No 1 On Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart For The Tenth Non Consecutive Week

Since being replaced at No. 1 last week by Blink-182 on Billboard‘s “Top 200 Albums” chart, Drake‘s VIEWS album is now back in the top spot this week after selling around 92,000 copies (plus streams).

This means VIEWS has been No. 1 for ten non-consecutive weeks and it is only the tenth album to do so in the last 20 years! Drizzy now has the most weeks at No. 1 with a solo project by a male music artist since Billy Ray Cyrus’ Some Gave All album did 17-weeks in the top spot back in 1992.

VIEWS is also the highest-selling album released in 2016 with around 1.34 million units sold so far. The 6 God‘s project is just behind Adele’s 25 album, which was released in 2015, to be the biggest-selling album this year as that has around 1.44 million units sold in 2016.

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!
