‘Champagne Papi’ Drake is undoubtedly raising a toast to the history-making chart performance of his latest album ‘Views.’

Dominating album charts for 9 consecutive weeks, the set – kicked off by the hotly performing Hot 100 blockbuster ‘One Dance’ – debuted at #1 and has yet to leave the spot.  Enjoying yet another week atop the album chart thanks to some strong streaming numbers (over 1 billion to date), Billboard reports:

Views earned 111,000 equivalent album units in the week ending June 30, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 25,000 were in traditional album sales. The bulk of Viewsunits were driven by streaming equivalent album units (67,000)…

Joining him at the top, once again, would be ‘Mine’ collaborator Beyonce.  For her latest album, ‘Lemonade,’ Billboard reports:

At No. 2 on the new Billboard 200 is Beyonce’s Lemonade, which rises one slot with 48,000 units (down 3 percent). Since the album debuted at No. 1 — 10 weeks ago — it has never left the top four position of the chart.

Exclusive: Rae Sremmurd Star Talks Writing Beyonce’s ‘Formation’

TGJ Catches Up With Swae Lee At 2016 BET Awards

As one of the world’s most monumental mega-stars, Beyonce has mastered the art of not just making music – but making “moments.”

One of her most profound was unleashed this February in the form of ‘Formation.’

An unapologetic celebration of her Blackness (and that of millions the world over), the cut and its accompanying video drew both praise and critique. More than anything, it ignited much needed conversation – which perhaps is where it’s greatest success lay. [The song would go on to enjoy a #10 peak on the Billboard Hot 100 months later when released with the singer’s sixth album ‘Lemonade’].

That Grape Juice caught up with one of the song’s primary writers – Swae Lee from duo Rae Sremmurd – at the 2016 BET Awards and quizzed him on what it was like working with the Queen Bey on the track. 

See what he had to say above and peep the award-winning video for ‘Formation’ below…

Rae Sremmurd’s new single ‘Do Yoga is out now; as is their album ‘Sremm Life 2′ arrives August 12th.
