Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Drake & Beyonce Reign Again

drake champagne thatgrapejuice 9th week

‘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.

See where all of your other faves o’ the day landed on this week’s refreshed Billboard 200:

Chart Check [Hot 100]: Drake Ties Michael Jackson Record With ‘One Dance’s 8th Week At #1

720x405-drake-michael jackson-thatgrapejuice

‘Work’ duo Rihanna and Drake have put in some major work in 2016 to overcome the historic chart records of King of Pop Michael Jackson.

Once thought insurmountable, the rumored on again/off again couple – through their respective projects ‘Anti’ and ‘Views’ – are jointly leaving the pop icon’s Billboard stats in their review.

Indeed, after Rih surpassed the singer’s historic 13 #1’s on the Billboard Hot 100 with her last run atop the tally, now Drizzy – with his monster hit ‘One Dance’ (7 consecutive weeks at #1, 8 overall) – is one week shy of laying claim to one of Jackson’s most unimaginable records.

Drake Teases New Video?

Drake, by all counts, is a charting rarity.

The Hip-Hop titan has towered above the competition for much of the year with releases from his mega-selling ‘VIEWS’ album. Especially the cuts ‘Controlla’ and ‘One Dance’ – the latter of which has topped tallies globally.

Interestingly, despite being a streaming force, he’s yet to release any visuals thus far this era.

That all looks set to change…it seems.

See what we mean below…

Billboard 200: Drake On Course For 9th Week At #1

Rapper Fends Off Newcomers & Old Chart Rivals Beyonce, Adele, & More

At this point it’s looking like it’s going to take an act of Congress to get Drake to move from the top spot of the Billboard 200.

For, after celebrating his 8th consecutive week atop the album chart (fending off steep competition from the Red Hot Chili Peppers), industry analysts predict ‘Views’ will be enjoying the view from the top yet again next week.

Fans who thought the anticipated increased sales of Beyonce‘s ‘Lemonade’ (thanks to a rocking BET Awards performance) and increased streams of Adele‘s blockbuster album ’25’ (thanks to recently widened streaming availability) would be enough to unseat the Grammy winning rapper apparently thought wrong.

Get the scoop inside:

Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Drake’s ‘Views’ Narrowly Holds To #1 For 8th Week

Rapper Given 'Red Hot' Run For Top Spot

drake billboard 200 8th week thatgrapejuice

The battle for the Billboard 200’s top spot proves yet again that all – and we do mean all – is fair in love and war.

Drake, whose streams of his latest album ‘Views’ have literally dominated the history books and current charts, was set to finally be ousted from the top spot this week thanks to legendary rockers Red Hot Chili Peppers and their new album, ‘The Getaway.’

A turn of events came when, during the last two days of the Nielsen tracking week, Drizzy and team gave his SPS numbers a boost after a sale saw the album’s price slashed to $6.99.

The result?

Drake’s ‘Views’ holds tight to the #1 position on the Billboard 200 for an 8th consecutive week – with just 6,000 copies difference between he and the Peppers.  But, just in case you were wondering where all of your other favorites landed on this week’s refreshed chart, you can look below to find out:
