Drake’s ‘Views’ Returns to No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart for 13th Week

Quote:

Drake’s Views jumps back to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, rising 2-1, and notches its 13th nonconsecutive week in the penthouse. Views’ return to No. 1 – after a seven-week break from the top slot – is the longest gap between weeks at No. 1 for an album in over three years.

Views earned 53,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 22, according to Nielsen Music.

Mumford & Sons’ Babel was the last set to take a longer break from No. 1, when it was absent from the top slot for 17 weeks. Babel debuted atop the list dated Oct. 13, 2012, and then spent the next two weeks at No. 1 (Oct. 20 and 27-dated lists). It moved out of the No. 1 slot for the next 17 weeks, and then hopped back to No. 1 on the March 2, 2013 chart, following its Grammy Award win for album of the year. It then spent another frame at No. 1 on March 9.

Views has the longest run at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 since the Frozen soundtrack also spent 13 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 in 2014 (Jan. 18-May 17).

Views maintains the most weeks at No. 1 for an album by an artist since Adele’s 21 notched 24 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 (March 12, 2011-June 23, 2012), and the most weeks atop the list for a man since Billy Ray Cyrus’ Some Gave All ruled for 17 straight frames in 1992 (June 13-Oct. 3).
