Drake Makes It Three Weeks Atop the Billboard 200
Regardless of the criticism that has greeted Drake’s fourth studio album Views, it continues its stay atop the Billboard 200.

That is less than last week, unsurprising, but the most notable discrepancy this week is between streams plus sales versus pure sales. Only about 35% of the 239,000 units are pure sales (83,000)!

Interestingly, Beyoncé actually sold more albums than Drake, topping the Top Album Sales chart. The top album sales chart was formerly the Billboard 200 before the new SPS form...
