Drake and Certified Lover Boy stand on top of the Billboard 200 for the third week in a row!

Drake will move another 171,000 equivalent units, after the album made its debut with 613,000 units in the first week. Last week, it moved 236,000 units, and is now eligible for platinum-certification.

Certified Lover Boy is the first rap album to spend its first three weeks on top of the Billboard 200, while Lil Nas X’s Montero debuted at No. 2 with 126,000 units.

Drake made history by debuting nine songs in the top 10 of the Hot 100 chart, making him the first artist to do so in history.

The nine singles pushed Certified Lover Boy past Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814, and Drake‘s own Scorpion, who each placed seven singles.

The Top 10 takeover includes the No. 1 single for “Way 2 Sexy”, which tallied 67.3 million streams, and is Drake’s ninth No. 1 single, the third for Young Thug, and is the first for Future.

Rounding out the top five is “Girls Want Girls” featuring Lil Baby, Fair Trade featuring Travis Scott, the album-opening “Champagne Poetry,” and the 21 Savage and Project Pat-assisted “Knife Talk.” Also in the top 10 is “In the Bible” featuring Lil Durk and Giveon, “Papi’s Home,” “TSU” and “Love All” featuring JAY-Z.

Certified Lover Boy will debut with the biggest opening for an album this year surpassing Donda in streams in just three days!

Is the War Over?

Drake's Certified Lover Boy features appearances from JAY-Z, Lil Wayne, Future, Lil Durk, 21 Savage, Young Thug, Ty Dolla $ign, and Travis Scott across 21 songs.

Earlier this year Drake had 150 different songs streamed over 100 million times across streaming platforms making him the first artist to achieve this in music history!

His most-streamed song, “One Dance,” leads the way with over 2.1 billion. “God’s Plan” comes in at number two with 1.7 billion streams, and “Passionfruit” clocks in just under one billion.

The award winner is determined by analyzing activity on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart and the Billboard 200 albums. Rounding out the top 5 are Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, and Adele.

"I didn't write a grandiose speech about how to make it work or what it took, 'cause to be honest, I don't really understand it myself," Drake went on to admit. "I just know that I've spent an incalculable amount of hours trying to analyze all the things I did wrong, but tonight, for once, I'm sure as hell we did something right."

Drake is also the soundtrack for Monday Night Football!

Starting next week, Drake will music curate for the game, and will collaborate with ESPN to score 10 Monday Night Football games. The musical selections will be from his new album, along with classics and additional songs handpicked by Drake.

“Now we are here, the kickoff of the football season and who better to curate music for Monday Night Football than Drake who sits firmly at the intersection of music and sports?” Emeka Ofodile, VP sports marketing at ESPN, said in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited for this upcoming collaboration. The music curator role has been a big hit with our fans with Diplo and DJ Khaled in previous years and this season, we will be living inside the moment with Drake as our NFL on ESPN soundtrack.”
