OVO Sound leader Drake has reacted to his Views album crushing its competition with its sixth straight week atop the sales charts.
Drake hopped on Instagram Monday (June 13) and boasted about the project’s overwhelming success.
The top-charting release recently reached the one billion streams mark.
Drake’s latest album “Views” has surpassed over 1 billion streams in the U.S. since its release on April 29th. This gives the rap star his second over 1 billion streamed album. The album has also held the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 for five consecutive weeks. He’s the “first male to lead both the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard Top 200 concurrently for more than three weeks in over a decade.” (ANTI Music)
Last week, Views reached a huge milestone for remaining atop the sales chart.
Drake’s Views continues to dominate the Billboard 200 albums chart, as it spends a fifth consecutive week at No. 1 atop the list. As noted a week ago, Views has the most weeks at No. 1 for an album by a man since Michael Buble’s Christmas also led the chart for five weeks in December 2011-January 2012. (Billboard)
Last month, Drake’s newest solo release hit over 500 million streams.
In its latest week, “Views” had only 83,000 sales, but songs from it racked up 186 million streams, according to Nielsen. Since the album came out, the songs have been streamed 572 million times in the United States; in each of the three weeks that “Views” has been out, it has had higher streaming numbers than any album has ever had.
