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 Earns His First No 1 On Hot 100 As A Lead Artist, Sets New Record For 20 Simultaneous Songs

Yesterday, Drake‘s “One Dance” single featuring Kyla and Wizkid knocked Desiigner’s “Panda” off the top position to became the No. 1 song on Billboard’s “Hot 100” chart. This means that he now has the #1 track and #1 album with VIEWS in the United States of America!

Even though this is Drizzy‘s third No. 1 on the chart, it is his very first No. 1 as a lead artist as Rihanna’s “Work” and “Whats My Name?” have both previously been on the top spot. He did come very close with “Hotline Bling” last year too.

I’m sure this is will come as a shock to everyone, because if you’re like me you’re wondering how it’s took so long for Drizzy to earn a No. 1 song in his hometown country.

Do you also think “One Dance” could give Drizzy Drake his first #1 in the United States of America? Because he has still not secured that title. However, he did go really close with “Hotline Bling“, which reached No. 2!
