Drake’s ‘Views’ No. 1 For Ninth Week On Billboard 200 Chart

“Views” pulls ahead of Eminem’s “The Marshall Mathers LP” to solely claim the third-most weeks at No. 1 by a hip-hop album.

For a ninth week in a row, Drake’s Views holds at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Views pulls ahead of Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP (with eight weeks at No. 1) to solely claim the third-most weeks at No. 1 by a hip-hop album. Ahead of Views are Vanilla Ice’s To the Extreme (16 weeks at No. 1 in 1990 and 1991) and MC Hammer’s Please Hammer Don’t Hurt ‘Em (21 weeks in 1990).

Views also has spent the most weeks atop the chart for an album by a man in over 10 years. The last album by a man to spend at least nine weeks at No. 1 was Usher’s Confessions, which racked up a total of nine nonconsecutive frames at in the penthouse in 2004.

Views has the longest consecutive rule atop the chart since Adele’s 21 spent 10 weeks in a row at No. 1 between the Jan. 14 and March 17, 2012-dated charts.

Impressively, in the last 10 years, the only albums to spend at least nine weeks at No. 1 are Views, two albums by Adele (25, with 10 weeks, and 21 with 24), two albums by Taylor Swift (Fearless and 1989, each with 11) and the Frozen soundtrack (13).
