Champagne Papi is still making moves on the charts with his latest musical effort.
For the twelfth time, rapper Drake has topped the Billboard Hot 200 chart with his album Views. Surpassing Taylor Swift‘s 11-week stay on the charts with her album 1989, the Canadian artist sold 85,000 equivalent album units in the past week.
Breaking records, Drake’s Views is inching towards taking the crown from the Frozen soundtrack for most weeks at number one since 2014 with 13 weeks at number one. With all of its promising success, a continued run on the charts at number one could lead to Drake rivaling some contenders on a larger level. In the past 25 years, only five other albums have stayed on the charts longer than Views.
Moving forward, Drake is looking at battling the Titanic soundtrack (16 weeks), Billy Ray Cyrus‘ Some Gave All (17 weeks), Garth Brooks‘ Ropin’ The Wind (18 weeks), Whitney Houston for The Bodyguard soundtrack (20 weeks) and Adele‘s 21 ( 24 weeks).
