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.
