Nick Jonas's most recent album, Last Year Was Complicated, launches onto the Billboard 200 album chart after its first full week of release. 

As Billboard reports, Jonas’s latest effort is his best charting solo release, garnering 66,000 units its first week—47,000 of which were traditional album sales. Before this, Jonas’s highest peaking album was Who I Am, which reached its peak at No. 3.

Elsewhere on the chart, Drake remains at the No. 1 spot with Views. As Billboard notes, most of Views’ album units come from streaming—this week counting 74,000 units in streams. Notably, Drake’s latest album has remained atop the Billboard 200 for seven consecutive weeks, the longest streak by a male artist in almost 16 years. The Hamilton cast album also made a big leap this week from the No. 13 position to the No. 3 position, becoming the highest charting cast recording album since The Book of Mormon
