Drake’s ‘More Life’ Tops Billboard 200 for Third Week

For the third straight week, Drake’s More Life stays on top of the Billboard 200. The playlist earned 136,000 equivalent album units (16,000 traditional) last week.

This marks the first time a project has topped the chart in its first three weeks since Drizzy’s Views last year. The latter spent its first nine weeks at No. 1 before returning to the peak position four times.

Streaming has helped More Life with these impressive figures. In fact, 111,000 of its units are streaming equivalent albums, a sum comprised of 167 million streams of its songs for the week.

There’s still no word on when More Life will be available as a physical copy. Its previous release date, March 31, has been pushed back and no new date has been announced.

Propelled by the top 10 hit “Tunnel Vision,” Kodak Black’s debut album Painting Pictures, which features Future, Young Thug, and Jeezy, opens at No. 3 with 71,000 (15,000 traditional).

Elsewhere on the chart, Ed Sheeran’s ÷ remains at No. 2 (80,000), Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic rises 6-4 (48,000), Future climbs 9-8 with his self-titled LP (38,000), and Migos’ Culture jumps 11-9 (34,000).
