Drake’s 'Views' Spends 12th Week Atop Billboard 200


Drake’s Views manages to spend another week atop the Billboard 200 chart. 

Views remains steady at No. 1 for its 12 nonconsecutive week on the chart, making 85,000 album units this week, according to Billboard. A majority of that amount was earned through streaming equivalent album units. Entering its 12th week at No. 1, Views enters a short list of similarly reputable albums like Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill, Billy Ray Cyrus’ Some Gave All and Adele’s 21.

Debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 is Gucci Mane’s first post-prison album, Everybody Looking, his first studio release in five years. Twenty One Pilot’s Blurryface continues on at No. 3, which also went platinum this week.
