The 6 is officially a 9 now, as Drake's Views has spent nine consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. This makes the album the third longest-running hip-hop album of all time, beating Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP, which spent eight weeks at the top spot in 2000.
So which albums are ahead of Views? Vanilla Ice is in second place with To the Extreme (16 weeks at No. 1 in 1990 and '91) and MC Hammer’s holds first place with Please Hammer Don’t Hurt 'Em (21 weeks in 1990). Both of these albums, along with Drake's own, aren't the most groundbreaking or lyrical projects to come out of hip-hop, so make of the news what you will.
Despite the polarization surrounding Views, this news isn't too surprising since the albumhad it debuted at No. 1 with 852,000 units sold, the largest sales week for 2016. Of course, Beyoncé trails right behind with Lemonade selling 653,000 in its first week.
