Drake is unstoppable, and Ariana Grande knows it best.

Her impeccable new pop album Dangerous Woman was originally predicted to take the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart, but after a few days, updated estimates claimed the two were neck-and-neck – separating first from second by only a few thousand units.

It is now confirmed Drake's Views album lands at No. 1 for the fourth week with only 50,000 in pure album sales, but thanks to his massive streaming appeal, his tally comes to a whopping 189,000 units SPS.

Grande's latest record slides in at No. 2 despite selling more physical copies. According to Billboard, Grande sold 129,000 in traditional album sales (175,000 if you include streaming).

Interestingly, Blake Shelton's new album, If I’m Honest, enters at No. 3 despite selling more physical copies than both Drake and Ariana. He swooped in with 153,000 in traditional album sales (or 170,000 SPS).

Rounding out the Top 5 is Beyonce's Lemonade which slips 2-4 with 99,000 units and Rihanna's Anti at No. 5 with 48,000 units.

The Hot 100

Not one to share the spotlight, Drake also tops the Hot 100 this week with "One Dance."

Other notable positions are Desiigner’s “Panda” at No. 2, Justin Timberlake’s summer anthem “Can’t Stop The Feeling” stays put at No. 3, Fifth Harmony bump up one spot to No. 4 with their lead 7/27 song “Work From Home” and The Chainsmokers’ “Don’t Let Me Down” moves up to No. 5.

Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” moves up to No. 8, and Rihanna rounds out the top 10 with “Needed Me” and “Work” at No. 9 & 10 respectively.
