Views has been the best-selling album for nine weeks running now. According to Billboard, that makes it the hip-hop album with "the third-most weeks at No. 1." The report claims Views took in 111,000 equivalent album units for the week ending June 30. 25,000 of those were traditional sales. The big work was through streams where Drake took in 67,000. The two hip-hop records now standing in front of Views are Vanilla Ice's To the Extreme which held the number one spot for 16 weeks and MC Hammer's Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em which was at the top spot for 21 weeks.

Correction: an earlier version of this post said that Views was the third highest selling hip-hop album of all time, but it was a misquote from Billboard. The album has spent the third most weeks at number one for a hip-hop album.
