Drake’s “Views” Tops Billboard 200 For 8th Consecutive Week


(AllHipHop News) Drake has topped the Billboard 200 Chart for the 8th consecutive week for his recent album release Views.

According to The New York Times, it is the longest run for a male artist since Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP in 2000.

According to Nielsen, Views has been streamed a total of 105 million times over the past week alone.

Even though the album was released two months ago, the only artist to get more streams in a week was Beyonce, with her album Lemonade.

Views was released April 29 and features the hit singles “Controlla,” “Pop Style,” and “One Dance,” which also claimed the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 for the 6th week in a row.

Drake won awards for Best Male Hip Hop Artist, Best Collaboration for his feature on Rihanna’s “Work,” and Best Group for his joint project with Atlanta MC Future, What A Time To Be Alive at the 2016 BET Awards over the weekend.
