Drake’s ‘Views’ Hits Number One For A 3rd Consecutive Week & Makes History

By now you should should know that Drake’sOne Dance‘ hit has apparently secured the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 and this has also extended to the albums chart, as VIEWS currently sat at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in its 2nd week. On the most recent albums chart, for the week (which ends June 4), which was revealed on the 23rd of May saw Drake take No. 1 again for the 3rd week in a row. In its first week, VIEWS gained about 245 million streams, which beat the previous record of 115.2 million streams set by Beyonce’s Lemonade for the week ending in April 28. VIEWS experienced an apparent  70 percent drop in sales & streams the following week, but in week 2 streams still reached 141 million, beating the first week numbers of Beyonce. After two weeks, VIEWS was made available on other streaming platforms outside of Apple Music and unsurprisingly experienced a spike in streams for its third week, stacking up another 186 million. So this ideally means that VIEWS has attained more streams than any other album in history in each of its three weeks of release. and no other album has had a first-week performance that matches to Drake’s second-week or third-week numbers. Major.
