For three consecutive times, Canadian rapper, Drake holds the No.1 spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart with his album, Scorpion.

Per figures, the set earned 260,000 equivalent album units in the week ending in July 19, of that sum 29, 000 were in traditional album sales. With  third week at No.1, Scorpion ties for the most weeks atop the Billboard 200 in 2018. Since 2015, Scorpion is the first album since Adele’s 25 to see its first three weeks all earn more than 260,000 units apiece. 25 launched with a weekly record 3.48 million units (Dec.12,2015 – dated chart), and then racked up 1.16 million and 728,000 in its second and third weeks respectively.
