OVO Sound leader Drake’s Views and Gucci Mane‘s Everybody Looking albums have both put on for hip-hop with impressive placements atop the music charts this week.
According to reports, Drizzy and Gucci’s solo efforts topped the retail competition.
His Views (YMCMB/Republic) is #1 on the HITS Sales Plus Streaming Chart once again. With 83k, he takes the top spot for a 12th non-consecutive week. To recap, this is his third consecutive week at #1 since BMGÔÇÖs blink-182 momentarily dethroned him at the start of July. Last week, Views officially became the first album to score 1m in SEA (Streaming Equivalent Albums) thanks to 1.5b+ streams. As for this week, though, Gucci Mane scored the highest debut, landing at #2 on the SPS chart with 70k for Everybody Looking, his first musical release since he himself was released from prison.

Views has now earned the most weeks at No. 1 for an album since Taylor SwiftÔÇÖs 1989 spent its 11th and final week atop the list on the chart dated Feb. 21, 2015.

A few weeks ago, Views fell from grace after battling it out with rock group Blink-182.
After nine weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, DrakeÔÇÖs Views is dethroned from the top slot by Blink-182ÔÇÖs new set, California. The latter debuts at No. 1 with 186,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending July 7, according to Nielsen Music. (Billboard)
