Drake (Views) remains at no. 1 on the Billboard 200 for a 12th week.
At the top of the Billboard 200, it’s more of the same! Drake spends a record 12th week at no. 1 on the Billboard 200. Only one act – Blink-182 (California) – temporarily halted the momentum of Views. Despite a relatively strong showing, Gucci Mane settles for the runner-up spot with comeback album, Everybody Looking. Beyond Drake and Gucci Mane, there are many other chart takeaways on the Billboard 200, dated August 13, 2016.
