OVO Sound leader Drake’s Views album is reportedly set to make a triumphant return to the top of the sales chart following a big battle with fellow rapper ScHoolboy Q‘s Blank Face album.
Barring any last-minute sales changes, Views should edge Blank Face by just over 10,000 copies.
This past week, 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)
Drizzy hopped onto Instagram in early July and celebrated Views‘ nine straight weeks atop the sales chart.
Earlier this month, Cash Money boss Birdman spoke on his prot├®g├®’s chart-topping success.
“ItÔÇÖs the first time Drake did this so it is an experience. You canÔÇÖt ever underestimate him,” Birdman said referring to Views remaining atop the sales chart for two months. “I knew he was going to be a superstar from day one. I see him get to where he got. He worked real hard. He had to go through a lot to get to where he at. There was other people before there was Drake. Now, he there and I think he gonna hold it down. ItÔÇÖs just his time for him to do what he do. And we planned for him to do these things. We just blessed to be able to have the artists on our label thatÔÇÖs doing it. He know how to handle it. He a smart man. He move right. Stays out of trouble. He built for it. He the perfect person for it.” (Billboard)
