On top of gaining the number one spot on the Billboard 200, ‘More Life’ also broke the streaming record that ‘Views’ set last year!
‘More Life’ is Drake’s seventh consecutive No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart, moving 505,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 23. The biggest week for any album since Drake’s ‘Views’ launched with 1.04 million units last year.
Breaking down the numbers even further, 257,000 sales were from streaming equivalent albums, 23,000 were from track equivalent albums, and the remaining 226,000 were from traditional album sales!
With Drake’s seven No. 1’s, he’s tied with both Kanye West and Eminem for the second-most No. 1s among hip-hop acts, with Jay leading with 13. Congratulations to Drake!
