Drake’s ‘Scorpion’ Remains No. 1 for Fourth Week

Drake’s Scorpion holds down the No. 1 spot for a fourth week on the Billboard 200.

The Canadian rapper’s record-breaking album moved 184,000 equivalent album units (15,000 traditional) in the week ending July 26, according to Billboard. Scorpion, which bowed atop the chart and has remained there ever since, earns the most weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2018. The last album to top the chart for four weeks was Taylor Swift’s Reputation, which logged four non-consecutive weeks from Dec. 2-16, 2017, and again on Jan. 6, 2018.

Scorpion also captures the most consecutive weeks in a row at No. 1 since The Weeknd’s Starboy topped the chart for four consecutive weeks between Jan. 21 and Feb. 11, 2017.

Following Drake is Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys, which sits at No. 2 with 65,000 units, up one notch from last week.

Elsewhere in the top 10, XXXTentacion’s ? remains at No. 4 (41,000), Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy holds at No. 5. (41,000), and Juice WRLD’s Goodbye & Good Riddance is No. 6 (40,000). Wiz Khalifa’s Rolling Papers 2 falls 2-7 in its second week with 33,000 units.

For the first time since January, there are no debuts in the top 10. The highest new entry is The Internet’s Hive Mind, which arrives at No. 26.
