Drake’s “Views” Reclaims #1 Spot


(AllHipHop News) Drake has reclaimed the number one spot on the U.S. album chart with Views.

The “One Dance” star’s album rebounds from second to first place, making it his 10th non-consecutive week atop the Billboard 200.

Views spent the first nine weeks in the top spot until Blink-182 took the crown after their California album was released on 1 July (16).

The pop punks’ record now moves down two spots to third place.

With the Toronto rapper back on top, Views becomes only the 10th album in the past 20 years to spend 10 weeks at number one.

Adele’s 21 holds the record for 24 weeks in the top spot, while Drake is now tied with the British soul star’s latest effort, 25, and Backstreet Boys’ Millennium for a 10-week reign.

In addition, Views now has the most weeks at number one for an album by a solo male artist since Billy Ray Cyrus’ Some Gave All ended a 17-week run at number one in 1992.

Drake also surpasses Usher’s nine-week record with Confessions in 2004.

Back in the Billboard 200, rapper ScHoolboy Q is at #2 with the debut of his Blank Face LP, while Twenty One Pilots’ Blurryface rises from five to four.

The soundtrack to blockbuster musical “Hamilton” jumps from eighth place to fifth, most likely due to the recent departure of creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda and original cast members Leslie Odom, Jr. and Phillipa Soo.
