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:
Drake’s Views album is on course for a ninth consecutive week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, according to industry forecasters. Sources say that the album should far-and-away hold atop the list, with over 100,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending June 30…
Adele’s 25 should see a boost on the Billboard 200, following the album’s arrival on streaming services on June 24. Sources indicate that the album will return to the top 10 with perhaps a 10-30 percent overall unit gain (up to 32,000-38,000 units). A week ago, it ranked at No. 12 with 29,000 units.
