For the eleventh non-consecutive week, Drake‘s VIEWS album remains at No. 1 on Billboard’s “Top 200 Albums” chart after selling around 89,000 copies (including streams)!
The last project to spend 11 weeks in the top spot was Taylor Swift’s 1989 album last year. However, the last album that was No. 1 for more than 11 weeks was the Frozen soundtrack back in 2014 with 13 weeks, so do you think Drizzy can surpass that?
The tracklisting for DJ Khaled‘s upcoming Major Key album, which will be released next Friday (July 29th), has made its way online and Nicki Minaj is a confirmed feature on it.
Nicki is featured on a song called “Do You Mind” and it will also feature Chris Brown, August Alsina, Jeremih, Future, and Rick Ross.
As well as the Young Money Barbie, Major Key will also feature her label-mates Drake on “For Free” and Lil Wayne on “Tourist“!
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.
Cory Gunz performed live during the 2016 Hudson Valley Throw Back Music Fest at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York on May 22nd.
While backstage, Cory revealed to Sierra Image Films that he is currently working on his Kriminal Minded project and a collaboration album with producer Nottz.
The Gunna also mentioned that his Kriminal Minded EP is in the final stages right now and it will be released in a couple of months. This interview took place in May, so that means we could be hearing the project this month!
You can check out Gunz‘ conversation backstage at the show below, as well as see him perform his verse off Lil Wayne‘s “A Milli” single.
After finding out Drake‘s VIEWS was No. 1 on the “Top 200 Albums” chart for nine consecutive weeks yesterday, Billboard have now confirmed that his “One Dance” single featuring Kyla and Wizkid has been No. 1 on the “Hot 100” chart for eight weeks in total (seven in a row).
With this accomplishment, Drizzy is now tied with Michael Jackson for the longest-ever simultaneous domination on both charts, which is seven weeks. MJ first set this mark back in 1983 with his “Billie Jean” single and his Thriller album.
Congratulations to the 6 God on this amazing achievement!
Drake‘s VIEWS album is still currently No. 1 on Billboard‘s “Top 200 Albums” chart, which now makes it nine consecutive weeks that it has been in the top slot! In other words, since VIEWS dropped it has been No. 1 every single week!
According to Nielsen Music, Drizzy‘s latest album sold 111,000 units in the past week with streams and sales. VIEWS has now surpassed Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP (eight weeks) to claim the third-most weeks in the top spot by a hip-hop album.
The 2 albums above Drizzy Drake are Vanilla Ice’s To The Extreme album with 16 weeks at No. 1 and MC Hammer’s Please Hammer Don’t Hurt ‘Em album with 21 weeks at No. 1. Do you think the 6 God can surpass these projects with VIEWS?
According to the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA), Drake‘s VIEWS album reached double Platinum status in the USA last week on June 9th.
This means that VIEWS has had over 2 million sales since it was first released six weeks ago. It first went Platinum in just one week after the project dropped.
A big help with this verification is that the RIAA have adjusted their rules to let streaming count towards album certifications. Congratulations to Drizzy on this great achievement!
