Drake's Views scores ninth week at the top of charts

Drake has landed a ninth week at the top of the Billboard 200 album chart.

His Views has now spent more weeks at number one than Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP, and only two other hip hop albums - Vanilla Ice's To the Extreme and MC Hammer's Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em - have spent more weeks on top.


Drake has now become the first solo male artist in 12 years to spend at least nine weeks at number one - Usher last managed the feat with Confessions in 2004.


Beyonce's Lemonade rises a spot to two on the new countdown, while The Avett Brothers score their highest-charting album ever, as True Sadness debuts at three.


Twenty One Pilots' Blurryface and Anti by Rihanna round out the top five.
