Drake’s ‘Scorpion’ Album Tops Billboard 200 for Fourth Consecutive Week
In the week ending on July 26, Drizzy's latest album earned 184,000 equivalent album units, Billboard reports. Of those 184,000 units, 15,000 came from traditional album sales. Along with the most weeks spent at the top of chart for an album in 2018, Scorpion also achieved a few other feats.
The album has spent the most consecutive weeks at No. 1 in the last year-and-a-half and also becomes the first project to spend its first four weeks at No. 1 in two years. The feat was last achieved by Drake's own Views in 2016.
Along with Drizzy's Scorpion, hip-hop continues to dominate the Billboard 200. Post Malone's Beerbongs & Bentleys moved up one spot to No. 2, while XXXTentacion's ? sits at No. 4 and Cardi B and Juice Wrld's projects stay at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively. Wiz Khalifa's Rolling Papers 2 also earned a spot in the top 10, although the album dropped from No. 2 to No. 7.
