After welcoming major first week sales last week, Drake‘s ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ continues to rock and roll on the Billboard 200 this week!

For, before his rivals Chris Brown and Tyga impact the chart with their new album ‘Fan of a Fan’, the ‘What If I Kissed You’ performer has sold 187,000 units of ‘Late’ in its second week, pushing it to sales of 624,000 units ten days after it was turned over to digital retailers.

Alas, 195,000 units moved by the ‘Imagine Dragons’ LP ‘Smoke + Mirrors’ saw Drizzy booted from the top spot, placed at #2 as his ‘Truffle Butter‘ pal Nicki Minaj watches her new album reclaim a spot in the Top Ten.

Chart Check: Rihanna Rises On Hot 100 While Drake Dominates Billboard 200 With Surprise Album

bruno-mars-rihanna-rihanna

At the rate Rihanna, Kanye, and Paul McCartney are moving, it looks more like they’re ‘FourFiveSeconds’ to hitting #1 on the Hot 100 with their modern day pop-folk single.  Giving McCartney his first top 5 on the chart in 31 years, the song is slowly, but surely creeping to the top spot.

But, as the week has evidenced, such creep will be no easy feat.

As the tally’s refreshing shows, ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ hitmaker Bruno Mars appears to be locked in the #1 spot and has clocked yet another week on the chart’s perch with ‘Uptown Funk.’  In fact, reigning in lucky week number 7, the run gives him his longest reign at the top – besting his former longest reign ‘Heaven’ by 1 week.

Elsewhere, on album charts, it comes as no surprise that Drake‘s surprise album ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ is #1 with over 535,000 united moved its inaugural week (495,000 of those are pure album sales).  To put this into context, Beyonce’s self-titled surprise moved 617,000 units in a little over 3 days, but could at least later boast physical copy sales in its tally.

Drake’s sales are expected to be relatively sustained over the next week but, unlike Bey, will not have any physical retailer as its considered a “mixtape.”  Furthermore, Drizzy’s reign atop the Billboard 200 enters him in history books as only the second hip hop act to see his first 4 albums debut at #1 (DMX is the first).

Enough chatter, tuck in below to see this week’s refreshed Hot 100 and Billboard 200 lists below:
