Drake’s ‘Views’ Ties 11-Week Run Of Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ Atop Album Chart
In what has to be the most barren, dull-as-fuck stretch of months as far as new album releases go (unless, of course, Kidz Bop is your jam), Drake‘s Views easily racks up an 11th week at the top of the Billboard 200 after earning 89,000 more units. The 29-year-old Toronto rapper sees his latest LP tie with the 11-week streak at #1 that Taylor Swift‘s 1989 enjoyed.
Left in the dust last week by Views: Adele‘s 25, which has spent a total of 10 weeks at the top so far. (This week it’s at #7.) Looking ahead, the next lengthy streak at #1 Drake’s current album would need to pass by is the 13-week stint Disney’s Frozen soundtrack achieved in 2014.
