Drake Sets Yet Another Billboard 200 & Hot 100 Record With ‘Views’

‘Hotline Bling’ beau Drake has rung up yet another record on Billboard charts thanks to the performance of his latest album ‘Views.’  Amassing a sales equivalence of over 2.6 million since its April premiere, the album and its contents continue to dominate every applicable chart.

Debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200 and holding tight for 9 consecutive weeks, ‘Views’ and its #1 hit ‘One Dance’ were jointly one week shy of breaking Michael Jackson‘s record for longest consecutive control of both the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously among solo males this time last week (read more on that here).

Yet, while falling one week short of the achievement this week thanks to a brief Blink-182 induced dethronement from the top of the album charts (read more on that here), the fall still helped Drizzy see his name scribbled in history books for another accomplishment.

Curious to find out what it is?  We thought so…

If this week’s Billboard Hot 100 is anything to go by, public has clearly forgiven Fergie for the musical misstep that was last year’s ‘L.A. Love.’

For, as the refreshed chart shows, the pop-rapper – whose latest number ‘M.I.L.F.$’ is rumored to be the kickoff of her long-awaited sophomore album ‘Double Dutchess’ – found herself nabbing her career best debut chart placement.

Indeed, after unveiling the tune’s accompanying video (featuring cameos from Ciara, Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen, and more), the song raked in an impressive 65,000 sold its premiere week.

Curious to know where this handsome sum, in addition to its streaming, helped land it on this week’s Drake-led Hot 100?  Tuck in below to find out:

Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Drake Drops From #1 After 9 Consecutive Weeks

drake-2016-views-763x717

The Billboard 200 reign of Drake‘s fourth studio album, ‘Views,’ has been nothing short of historic.

Topping the tally for a whopping 9 consecutive weeks, the project has undoubtedly set the streaming bar extremely high for any act to follow.  With over 1 billion collective streams of its content, as of time reporting ‘Views’ has “sold” a cool 2.5 million units (with only half of that figure coming from traditional sales).

However, as the age old adage goes, all good things must come to an end.  For, as previously reported, rock group Blink 182 rocked the rapper’s tenure at the top this week with their latest project.  But, fans of Drizzy needn’t worry.  Reports are already indicating he will most likely be #1 again next week.

Until then, see this week’s updated chart below:

‘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.
