Nick Jonas Debuts at No. 2 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart, Drake’s ‘Views’ Steady at No. 1

Quote:

Drake stays put at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 — for a seventh week — Nick Jonas’ Last Year Was Complicated arrives at No. 2 and the Hamilton cast album hits the top 10 for the first time, rising 13-3.

Views earned 121,000 equivalent album units in the week ending June 16, according to Nielsen Music (down 10 percent for the week). Views is the first album by a male to spend seven consecutive weeks at No. 1 in nearly 16 years. Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP was the last to do so, as it racked up its eight total weeks at No. 1 (all in a row) between June 10-July 29, 2000.

Jonas debuts at No. 2 on the new Billboard 200 with his latest album, Last Year Was Complicated. It marks his highest charting solo effort, trumping the No. 3 peak of Who I Am (Jonas with The Administration) and No. 6 peak of his self-titled album.

The new set starts with 66,000 units earned in the week, with 47,000 of that in traditional album sales. His last album, his eponymous release, bowed at No. 6 with 37,000 sold.
