The Album, Views, by rapper Singer Drakes managed to stay at the top of Billboard 200 for the 10th week running this week. The album now joins the exclusive club of only ten other albums which have been able to achieve this feat in the last two decades. Some of these famous albums include Adele’s 21 and 25, the Titanic soundtrack and Taylor’s Swift’s Fearless. Singer-rapper Drake now becomes the first and only rapper on this list. The album recorded high sales on the tenth week and sold about 92,000 additional copies. Most of these copies were released through Stream Equivalent Albums (SEAs) which provided the bulk of the sales.
This Album is riding a high wave and there are possibilities that it can hit the 11th week at the top. Currently, it is 2016’s second biggest selling album and only needs to sell about 100,000 copies to catch up with Adele’s 25. At the second spot this week is Schoolboy Q’s Blank Face which sold about 74,000 copies in its first week on the charts. Blink 182’s California stands at number 3 having sold 37,000 copies. Others on the top 10 list include North Corridor by Chevelle which sold 33,000 copies and stands at number eight. Blurry Face by Twenty one Pilots took the number 4 slot. At number nine is Adele’s 25 while Rihanna’s Anti is at number six. Others include Beyonce’s lemonade at number seven and switchfoot’s Where the Light Shines Through at number 10.
