Drake's Views keeps racking up chart accomplishments, and has now spent a full six months in one of the top five slots on the Billboard 200 chart. After dropping in April, the album has spent 13 of its 26 weeks in the chart's top position.

As Billboard notes, the project joins a very select group of albums that have notched a similar level of prolonged chart success. Views is one of only seven albums to have spent their first 26 weeks in the top five since 1963 (when mono and stereo charts were combined to create a single chart).

Adele's 21 is the current record holder in the category, having notched 39 consecutive weeks (and 68 nonconsecutive) in the top five. Rounding out the list are Michael Jackson's Bad, Stevie's Songs in the Key of Life, The Eagles' Hotel California, Garth Brooks' Ropin' the Wind and the "I Will Always Love You"-featuring soundtrack from The Bodyguard.

In related news, the album's blockbuster single, "One Dance," became the most streamed song in Spotify history a few weeks ago, with over 880 million streams.
