The numbers are in! Drake is still at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart with 135,000 album equivalent units. What will stop him?

For those keeping track, this is the sixth consecutive week Drake is at #1, a big feat for Views, which was released back on April 29. It's the most consecutive weeks a male act's album has spent on the chart in 11 years, since 50 Cent's The Massacre dominated in early 2005.

Of course, a bunch of women's albums have broken that record in the past 10 years, including three Taylor Swift records and two Adele releases.

Beyoncé's Lemonade sits at the No. 2 spot this week, with Paul Simon at No. 3.
