Drake’s No. 1 album streak on the Billboard 200 chart has ended after a decade. Following his ninth consecutive No. 1 spot with Care Package last year, the Toronto rapper’s streak has abruptly ended with his latest project, Dark Lane Demo Tapes. The new tape, which features a slew of previously-leaked and unreleased material, lost to Kenny Chesney’s latest album Here and Now.
Dark Lane Demo Tapes moved approximately 223,000 equivalent album units, with Chesney’s latest release scoring 233,000. The end of Drake’s No. 1 streak concludes a decade of releases, initially beginning with 2010’s Thank Me Later. His most recent album, Scorpion, raked in 732,000 units in its first week and went on to tie Kanye West, Eminem, and The Beatles for the longest No. 1 streak.
Other projects featured in this week’s Billboard 200 top include Lil Baby’s My Turn at No. 3, DaBaby’s Blame It on Baby at No. 4, Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake at No. 5, The Weeknd’s After Hours at No. 6, Megan Thee Stallion’s Suga EP at No. 7, Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding at No. 8, and Doja Cat’s Hot Pink at No. 9.
For more new music, Bad Bunny has dropped a surprise album titled Las Que No Iban A Salir.
