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

Published: Saturday 16th Jul 2016 by Rashad

‘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…

Via Billboard:

Until this week, Drake had led both tallies simultaneously for seven straight weeks, with “Dance” and parent album Views, respectively. That run tied Drake with Michael Jackson for the longest consecutive control of the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously among males, as Jackson also led both lists concurrently for seven straight weeks in 1983, with “Billie Jean” and Thriller, respectively. As of this week, Drake remains in a tie with the late King of Pop for the mark, as Blink-182’s California dethrones Views with its debut atop the Billboard 200.

Still, Drake has made history regarding that angle: he has spent the most total weeks, eight, among males simultaneously topping the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 with one song and album. He earned the honor solely last week with his eighth such frame for “One Dance” and Views, respectively, passing Jackson’s seven-week run, all linked consecutively, with “Billie Jean” and Thriller.

As previously reported, Whitney Houston reigns as the solo act with the most TOTAL weeks and LONGEST CONSECUTIVE CONTROL, of the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously with ‘I Will Always Love You’ and ‘The Bodyguard.’  

Fans may remember she ruled both charts for a whopping 12 weeks in 1992-1993.

    He is slaying hard. I haven’t seen a rapper slay this hard since Eminem MMLP.

    Rihanna’s “ANTI” has now crossed the “1 Billion Streams” mark on ‘SPOTIFY’, globally, becoming the fastest female album to do so – 6 months (excluding individual track streams).

    1) X – Ed Sheeran – 1.4+ Billion.
    2) VIEWS – Drake – 1.25+ Billion.
    3) Beauty Behind The Madness – The Weeknd – 1.2+ Billion.
    4) Prism – Katy Perry – 1.1+ Billion.
    5) ANTI – Rihanna – 1+ Billion


    • LB July 16, 2016


      And I also like that it is about to pass Prism. I need it to be the most streamed album of all time, GLOBALLY.

    • Keri Qween July 16, 2016

      Yasss a 6 month old album compared to Prism

      Real queen ?

    • © Centurion ::. July 17, 2016

      That’s wonderful! ANTI is a great album.

  4. Suicide Blonde July 16, 2016

    With the LITTLE difference that both Michael Jackson and the great Whitney Houston ruled the chart based exclusively on sales and radio airplay.

      Times change no one has CD players or old vinyle anymore so deal with streamING stop comparing 30 years ago to now we live in technology haters come on here with Whitney and Michael this and that stfu if you mad go get a damn record player

  5. IStan4Rihanna. (British Navy) July 16, 2016

    Drake and Rihanna occupy the entire top 5 on SPOTIFY… again!



  6. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? July 16, 2016

    I wonder how big Views would have been in the era where sales mattered? Congrats though.

  7. Royalkev July 16, 2016

    Will Billboard just split the 2 charts already! Traditional and Streaming charts really need to be divided (artists can still be ranked weekly on both). It makes a difference, everything from 2010 and prior can’t keep being lumped with today’s new system (especially when it comes to the record books, it’s borderline offensive). Still want to congratulate Drake, but I’m just saying!

    • Mark111 /.\ July 16, 2016

      Boo whoo, go cling to the past like JOHNDENIAL. Out with the old, in with the new. Get with it or get lost.

        Johndenial lol laughing too hard.

        You know grandpa john is somewhere typing up an essay

      • Royalkev July 16, 2016

        ^ and you need to stop following behind every thing on here, group thinking b****!…

    • Keri Qween July 16, 2016

      There is a separate chart for album sales only faag stop your WHINING this isn’t the 90s anymore times have changed. The billboard 200 reflects streaming and sales. If you want to view who sold the most weekly simply head over to the Top Album chart that Billboard has designated and STFU on every post about streaming. Thank you .

      • Royalkev July 16, 2016

        Bish who are you? … and What the f*** is a Keri? First off all, I know what the BB200 reflects! I’ve studied it like it’s a bible! I respect it and that’s why I don’t like the idea of apples and oranges being grouped! Believe me, I know who selling what every week! I’m not mad at anyone’s success (however they get it), my main concern is the big picture being represented accurately for those viewing it 20 years from now!

      • Keri Qween July 16, 2016

        Someone who can read and write and isnt a thief like the trash you stan for.

        20 years from now im SURE it will be noted that at the time streaming was included for these achievements. Stop being BITTER

      • Royalkev July 16, 2016

        Weak! Find some new drags in 2016! I don’t want to have to show you how many ASCAP awards my fav racked up. I personally don’t care about what a Keri do! … Any-mf’ing-way, what you’re not going to do is get me sidetracked on wack random bishes like that! … The point I’ve made is similar to the reference you’ve just made. You believe it will be noted that streaming will be included (because it should be) and that’s not very different from me saying that 2 charts should be distinguished for this!

      • Keri Qween July 16, 2016

        What’s an ASCAP award when your fave has been getting sued since at LEAST 2008 for stealing peoples songs and not giving them credit? Only when they take he THIEF to court does she then give the REAL songwriters credit. Soo tell the foolishness to your fellow hive please.

        Anyways the POINT IS streaming is huge and isn’t going anywhere soon. Like I said I’m sure it’ll be noted in the future..this is a huge era in music right now. Why wouldn’t it be?

      • Royalkev July 16, 2016

        Boy stop! You’re doing too much, when I’m sure you’ve never seen what transpires in the studio when these albums are created! I’ve seen people take a song that was fully written and give it 10x more than what it had originally! Trust me, it happens! Streaming will eventually take over and ya’ll can have it! It’s really not about who we stan for because both our favs will be at a different stage of their careers in 10 years. They’re no teens! I just think the charts should indicate how different times are now! Aretha and James Brown didn’t have streaming, so why should the all-time records not reflect that?

      • Royalkev July 16, 2016

        *I’ve seen people take a song that was fully written and give it 10x more than what it had originally (due to having a new arrangement).

      • Keri Qween July 16, 2016

        I’m a FEMALE Grandpa. also..what does that have to do with her taking full credit for work she didn’t do? That’s an insult to real songwriters for her to do that.artists like Drake are dominating in THIS current music time, i don’t think it takes away from the hard work these artists put in before him. I do get your point but I think this reflects more of what the current state of music is like rather than comparing it to music in the past.

      • Royalkev July 16, 2016

        … But h** (since we’re guessing each other’s real names now), I’m not grandpa(number 1)! You obviously don’t have on your reading glasses because I’ve already explained that you weren’t in the studio (number 2) and you don’t know how these Beyonce songs were crafted, nor do you know what her contribution is (number 3) … and btw, your condition is called Alzheimer’s! You’re welcome!

      • Keri Qween July 16, 2016

        I don’t have to be there faag. You’re telling me the people who created the songs who sue her are lying? I’ll take their word before the thief or one of her delusional fans ?. She lied about writing Irreplaceable.. She said it.in concert.The videos on YouTube UGLY.ne-yo clocked her and said she only did vocal arrangements and melodies. Yes she got a credit for that but did she WRITE it? Nope. Take her for the thief that she is. She’s a good dancing m*****..but still a thief. We all have our faults.

      • Royalkev July 16, 2016

        … and anything that makes history today is compared to the past because it must outperform what’s #1 in the record books! I’m not saying that Streaming charts can’t have any significance of it own, I’m simply saying that it’s unfair to rank these songs higher than songs from different periods under drastically uneven terms.

      • Royalkev July 16, 2016

        You must be the simple ass, twat in the room that make people talk in circles and annoy the f*** out of them! Just like I can’t tell you how much songwriting credit Bey deserves, you can’t tell me the opposite! We weren’t invited to the studio? You feel me? … Dancing m*****? If Bey’s a m*****, I’d love to see what kind of animal people would think to call you! For a lady you have 0 class! … and that’s more a**-ish than Bey could ever be!

      • Royalkev July 16, 2016

        I have to fix this just so TGJ could post:

      • Keri Qween July 16, 2016

        Lmao! Im not telling you how much credit she deserves as a songwriter I’m telling uou facts not my opinion. Fact that she is sued every era for stealing someone’s song. Fact that she said in concert that she WROTE irreplaceable when all she did was take a song that Ne-yo had written and re arranged the vocals.its quite simple what im saying. Theres no talking in circles.

        And death. Not you talking about CLASS.Your fave lost that s*** a LONG time ago. Id say around the time she was at a prestigious award show like the Grammys in a thong singing about swallowing d*** in a car.Move around b****, youre cutting into my beauty rest.

      • Royalkev July 16, 2016

        Loool Really?! I’m going to end it on this note … especially if you catching up on beauty rest, don’t come back here til Monday! 🙂 Deuces!

      • IStan4Rihanna. (British Navy) July 16, 2016

        @ROYAL KEV


        Babe, I like you but… sales are dead!


        Last week, digital sales broke a negative record for the first time since its 2005 prime inception where the #1 song on ITunes sold less than 100K copies. Currently, every song in the top 10 has sales downward of 95K.


        This week, KWORB predicts that both Katy Perry and Britney Spears’ new singles won’t sell more than 130K! For an artist of Perry’s calibre, that is awful.


        STREAMING truly is dominating and will continue to do so! I h derating your need for a separate chart but why should that be the case when one metric is clearly outweighing the other 5 to 1?

      • Keri Qween July 16, 2016

        Lmao okay @ royalkev

        I’ll pray for you tonight . you’re very delusional. Poor thing

      • Royalkev July 16, 2016

        Omg, I wish you took the place of that thing I actually entertained for the last couple of hours (on a Saturday night at that)! I’m too drained for round 2!

        I’ll just say this: I understand your argument, but it comes down to what people feel is fundamentally right! Should a song or album dominating with huge streams trump songs or albums with bigger sales? I personally don’t think streams = investment! You can argue that the interest is there, but I’ve PURCHASED everything I’ve had REAL INTEREST in. We all know sales are decreasing this decades! People often try to take credibility away from Beyonce because she’s only selling triple platinum (or currently going platinum). Common sense would tell you that if this was the 90’s, it’s safe to assume Bey would sell 5 million albums or more (especially when she’s currently one in a small handful of today’s artists selling north of 1 million). I’d still prefer to see the lower sales dictate artists chart placement! We just have to deal! Btw, I’m actually more particular about the album chart than the Hot 100 because it’s always been about the TOP SELLING album (not airplay, streams, etc).

      • wrosy3 July 17, 2016

        I know right these fools still would not buy albums if streaming did not exist yet they complain about it streaming are helping a lot of artist that are in the shadows back then very few people bought certain artist albums anyway what is the difference

  8. Mark111 /.\ July 16, 2016
