Drake’s ‘Views’ got bumped from the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 last week thanks to Blink 182, but the rockers’ reign was short-lived as Drake made his way back to the top spot this week.
Drake’s Views enters double-digit territory at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, as the album jumps 2-1 to collect a 10th nonconsecutive week atop the list. The set earned another 92,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 14 (down 22 percent), according to Nielsen Music.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new July 30-dated chart (where Views is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, July 19.
Views spent its first nine weeks on the chart at No. 1, then stepped aside a week ago for Blink-182, which opened at No. 1 with California. The latter album slips to No. 3 in its second week with 37,000 units (down 80 percent).
Views is only the 10th album in the last 20 years to spend 10 weeks at No. 1.
That’s pretty impressive!
