Drake's latest record Views has earned the most consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 by any man in over 10 years.
Though Views only sold 32,000 traditional album units, his stream game is strong. With a combined sales total that includes streaming, Drake flies to No. 1 with 135,000 equivalent album units, reports Billboard. That said, the last album by a man with more weeks at No. 1 was Eminem’s Recovery, which tallied seven nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 between July 10 and Sept. 4, 2010. 50 Cent notched six weeks at the top with The Massacre in 2005.
Drake beats out Beyonce's Lemonade which comes in at No. 2 with 69,000 units (48,000 were in traditional album sales) and Paul Simon's Stranger to Stranger, who actually sold the most with 68,000 units, of which 67,000 were in traditional album sales.
Rounding out the top 10 is Volbeat's Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie at No. 4, Maren Morris' Hero debuts at No. 5, Rihanna's Anti sits tight at No. 6, Ariana Grande's Dangerous Woman comes in at No. 7, Dan + Shay's Obsessed opens up at No. 8, Blake Shelton's If I’m Honest slips to No. 9 and Twenty One Pilots' Blurryface rounds it out.
