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

Published: Thursday 30th Jun 2016 by Rashad

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:

Via Billboard:

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.

  5. Metzo June 30, 2016

    His Album has not even been out for 6 months and it’s already been DISCOUNTED. Almost half off.

    • RihNavy June 30, 2016

      A GaGa T, tbh

    • Kris July 1, 2016

      And that’s the bottom line and to be quite frank, very pathetic. This is the second time the album has been marked down half off in one week. He may be killing these streams but everyone knows, streams does not accumulate much money for the artist. Drake is simply going after records opposed to the coins. I’m with Beyoncé, if people are willing to buy my records this day and age, I would stick to the old fashion way and make all of my coins versus only a fraction to hold a #1 spot. Drake can have it… but once he becomes a has been in a few years.. one thing will remain…and that’s BEYONCÉ

      • coupe July 1, 2016

        Streaming might not make a lot of money for the artist but it makes a lot of money for the industry. ..This is why it is reflected this way… The industry gets money from ads and subscriptions…now how much an artist receives It’s up to their contract. .. anyway SLAY

    • LOL July 1, 2016

      LOL AND HE’S STILL PIISSING IN KOOLAID LMAO.

    “Needed Me” has finally reached #2 on Spotify U.S!

    1. One Dance: 1.759M (+47k)
    .
    2. Needed Me: 958k (+41k)
    .
    3. Too Good: 952k (+28k)

    At this point he’ll take the most streamed album title from My Everything by the end of the Summer. He’s going to clean house at the Grammys

    • Mark111 /.\ June 30, 2016

      I forgot Mimic Carey dropped an album.

      • Grande The Way June 30, 2016

        Yawn. I’ve read better shade from Demi stans

  12. King Mark111 June 30, 2016

    Impressive. Glad Anti is about to spend half the year in the top 10.

  13. Jake June 30, 2016

    Can Beyoncé release on all streaming services already ? She is quite cute to let him shine . Though I applaud her for not putting it on the services just to be #1 on Billboard but instead satisfy herself being top 5 but still getting all of those 17.99$ per album coins or this Tidal money .

  14. M El June 30, 2016

    It’s cute you are delusion,she let hime shine,you wish.. Smh

  15. ow Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timely Ukuyi June 30, 2016

    Nice

  16. King B July 1, 2016

    Hopefully VIEWS will become the most weeks at number one, surpassing Adele, then everyone will laugh at his sales when comparing it to Adele. 😃

  17. Mezie July 1, 2016

    Adele break records without streams, physical sales counts for me. Adele is the only real deal, the rest are just some bed bugs making noise on billboard with the help of streams.

  18. GurlWepa1989 July 1, 2016

    Congrats to Drake, but Lemonade will never or come close to Taylor’s or Adele’s number. Taylor is working on the new album, can’t wait for the slayage.

  19. LOL July 1, 2016

    LMAO AT ALL THESE KOOLAID TEARS FROM THE ROACH NEST LMAO.

  20. Keri Qween July 1, 2016

    King of atreams

    And still outsold Lemonade US

    Not drake outselling the queen of pure sales..no streaming needed 💋all the h_i_v can talk about is the album being $18 and views being discounted. But he outsold her before he discounted it sooooo?😂😂😂
