(AllHipHop News) The Canadian star continues to lead the new Billboard 200 countdown after shifting another 225,000 equivalent units to maintain pole position, making the project his second release to date to hold on to the chart crown for more than one week.

His last album to do so was Views, which racked up a total of 13 non-consecutive weeks at number one last year.

Drake’s ongoing success keeps Ed Sheeran’s Divide at two, ahead of R&B singer Trey Songz’s Tremaine, which is new at three.

The “Beauty and the Beast” soundtrack is another non-mover at four, and Metallica’s Hardwired… To Self-Destruct jumps up to fifth place to round out the new top five.
