Keeping it real, y’all thought he was done, didn’t you? Who prey tell? Drake (Views), of course! Guess what, Drake ain’t done yet! While Blink-182 (California) was able to knock Views off the pedestal it kept warm for nine weeks, ScHoolboy Q (Blank Face LP) couldn’t hold off Drake. What does all this mean? Drake is sitting pretty once again at no. 1.
This week’s charts, dated July 30, 2016, is more than just Drake, ScHoolboy Q, and Blink-182. Check out 25 of the chart’s biggest stories below!
