Billboard 200: Drake To Lead For 12th Week / Blocks Gucci Mane From #1

Despite boasting a highly anticipated release post his release from prison, lip balm boycotter Gucci Mane‘s new album – ‘Everybody Looking’ – is looking like it will not wield enough sales + streaming power to unseat his longtime bud Drake from the top spot.

As we reported, Drizzy’s latest set, ‘Views,’ has been enjoying the views from the top of the Billboard 200 for 11 nonconsecutive weeks – only interrupted once by Blink-182.  Quickly recapturing the spot after the brief dethronement, the Canadian rapper’s streaming figures appear to still be going strong and, alongside his traditional sales numbers, are affording him yet another week on top.

Get the details below:


Views (YMCMB/Republic) is #1 on the HITS Sales Plus Streaming Chart once again [next week]. With 83k, he takes the top spot for a 12th non-consecutive week. To recap, this is his third consecutive week at #1 since BMG’s blink-182 momentarily dethroned him at the start of July.

As for this week, though, Gucci Mane scored the highest debut, landing at #2 on the SPS chart with 70k for Everybody Looking, his first musical release since he himself was released from prison. On the Album Sales Chart, however, it managed to bow at #1 with 44k.

  3. Duffster Lovato July 29, 2016

    Well I only acknowledge the album sales chart which Beyoncé has topped for multiple weeks.

    • Keri Qween July 30, 2016

      Yall salty. please. lemonade returned to #1 one week since its release and that was back in June. Stop acting like its been dominating the album sales chart because it hasn’t. ????

  4. Duffster Lovato July 29, 2016

  6. Nicole Slaysinger #I hate that piece of s*** chris brown July 29, 2016

    Oh gucci album was a let down anyway. Sounded more like a mixtape of songs that didn’t make an album.

  7. Mark111 July 29, 2016

    I bet Anti still out charted Kool-aid. What a short Era from the camel’s wife.

    • Ayyseify July 29, 2016

      Guess the billboard gods didn’t answer my prayers, KIIIIIII

    People shading Beyoncé but she has stolen EVERYONES shine by DOMINATING the award season thus far. Looks like she’s the QUEEN after all. And then she’s coming for another touring record by already grossing 123 million from only 23 dates! STAY MAD!!! ??????????

  9. IStan4Rihanna. July 29, 2016


    Drake’s “VIEWS” has beaten Rihanna’s record of the lowest-selling (pure sales) #1 album on the BB200:


    – 16K


    And people still have the audacity to denounce streaming when “sales” are near becoming obsolete. Okay.

    • Metzo July 29, 2016

      Rihanna’s was 14k, wasn’t it?

      • Kai2dasuan July 30, 2016

        Nope Rihanna sold 17k her 2nd time at #1 with anti

  10. HailLegendBeysus July 29, 2016

    But weren’t the Slavi laughing about Adele out charting Lemonade. I see 25 also out charted AntiSuccess kiii!!!
    Anyway, Lemonslayed still remains the best selling 2016 release! She still snatching these nominations from your favs.
    BTW where is the post about the Formation tour grossing $123m after her complete STADIUM TOUR SOLD OUT! While others struggle to sell an album, ticket sales and gain some recognition for their “most personal album to date” as the artist said herself kiii!!!!

  11. Bitchpleaseeee July 29, 2016

    That’s papi Drake reign ….,,,,?????????

  12. Annalise July 29, 2016

    I can’t @ these retrograde-ejâculation-having fâggots seething over Beyonce’s chart positions, when Aunti has yet to go gold after being released for over half a year. Lemonade has got you HEAUX’S sour af!!!!

    • Blue July 29, 2016

      Its 2xplatinum…

      • Annalise July 30, 2016

        I’m talking about pure PURCHASED sales sis! Not fRIH sales!

      • Blue July 30, 2016

    • Keri Qween July 30, 2016

      Anti has crossed 500k in sales update your receipts?

  13. ow Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timely Ukuyikiji July 29, 2016


  14. Navy Captain July 30, 2016

    And the hive still mad that Rihanna is sitting at 2x platinum and out charting Diet Limeade. She has had three top 10s in a matter of months and is shattering records left and right. Beyoncé as always has impressive physical sales but Rihanna won this year. Now deal and hold on to whatever edges you have left before that Anti part 2 drops.

    • Bravo!! July 30, 2016

      Who got more money & make more in concert tickets!!?? #settled

    • Bravo!! July 30, 2016

      Is Beyoncé album streaming on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, or any other streaming service? I believe Beyoncé Lemonade album not titled on iTunes. I type in Beyoncé and lemonade and noting pops up..

      • Ayyseify July 30, 2016

        Liar its in the top 20 iTunes sales

  15. B_Roni July 30, 2016

    I’m just glad Rih is doing great with this album. It just goes to show who is really listening to your music now days. If she didn’t do that Samsung gig she would probably be well over a million lpure sales. Also I guess this site isn’t gonna post on how great the Anti tour is grossing. Can’t wait till Forbes post the numbers

    • HailLegendBeysus July 30, 2016

      Lol! They did post about the tour. She grossed 21m from 20 dates and $49m from 47 dates ?.

  16. Bravo!! July 30, 2016

    Is Beyoncé album streaming on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, or any other streaming service? I believe Beyoncé Lemonade album not titled on iTunes. I type in Beyoncé and lemonade and noting pops up..

    • HailLegendBeysus July 30, 2016

      No it’s not. It’s currently still a Tidal exclusive on the streaming front.

  17. Justafan July 30, 2016

    Gosh ppl, please refrain from bringing up Beyonce or Rhianna in every post. Stick to the topic!!!! So lame

    • Kiki and a hehe July 30, 2016

      They can’ t do it to save their lives lol

  18. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!!! July 30, 2016

    The music industry needs taylor swift. This is pure fact. What a joke album sales have become.

    Music stores must be begging taylor swift to release our new album, because no one is buying these albums, only streaming for free.

  19. ROCK July 30, 2016

    Thanks to streaming,I see drake being number 1 for twenty nine weeks and in the top five for a whole year.and still not crossing 2million copies sold in the USA.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 30, 2016

      Yes. A joke.

    • Keri Qween July 30, 2016

      2 million or not he outsold Lemonade in the US and every other album released this year. Yall salty?.

      • Reply At Your Own Risk. Leave the DumbFuckery At Door ~tyler July 30, 2016

        Lemonade and Views also outsold Anti in a matter of weeks. The only one who should be salty is you.

  20. No favs, just here for the music July 30, 2016

    Drake looks so handsome here. Also congratulations to him KING of the charts for sure

  21. JOHNVIDAL July 30, 2016

    This is nothing but a joke. When Adele was brealing records 4 years ago with the many weeks “21” was sitting at #1 on the Billboard 200 at least it was part of a real phenomenon with monumental sales non stop. This right here is a joke and only proof that music industry is dead and nobody (almost) is able to catch people´s attention. As you all know, no Beyonce fan here, but she has sold more than him for many of these weeks. Facts are those. Also, once again, how can these 3 or 4 foolish Rihanna fans keep coming for Beyonce´s numbers when Rihanna can barely sell in many months what she did in a week? It´s truly appalling that they don´t get simple logic.

  22. LOL July 30, 2016


  23. Nicole Slaysinger #I hate that piece of s*** chris brown July 30, 2016
