It’s a 9 now. Or at least, it was 9.
Drake‘s Views album, the fourth studio album of his career, was released on April 29 and promptly debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. It would stay at #1 on the Billboard 200 for the next 8 weeks, giving Drizzy an unbelievable run with the #1 album in the country, a run that coincided with his single, “One Dance,” topping the Billboard Hot 100 for several of those weeks.
Unfortunately for Drake, he won’t get the majestic 10th week thanks to Blink-182, who will steal the top spot from Aubrey this week with 186,000 equivalent album units of their new LP, California, moved in its first 7 days. That’s enough to dethrone Drake, who will have to settle for #2 with a very respectable 117,000 units moved. (By the way, 100,000+ weeks more than 2 months after the release of an album is absurd in the digital and streaming era, so clap for ’em.) Maxwell‘s long-awaited comeback album, blackSUMMER’snight secured the 3rd spot with 59,000 units moved.
Now, about that “One Dance” video.
