Yay for strong sales this week, with the top 4 all clearing 100K! Believe it or not this is Drake's first album to get a second week at #1, the previous five all lasted only a week. Radiohead get their sixth consecutive top-3 album, two of which were #1s. Mike Posner debuts at #12, not quite matching the #8 peak of his first album. James Blake is also four spots shy of his career peak, at #36 with this album but his previous one peaked at #32. Last but not least, Skepta getting that top 200 album in America!!!! ohmy.gif

The numbers after each album title are: Total units, % change, last week's units (if any), sales, track-equivalent units and stream-equivalent units.

Drake's 'Views' Spends Second Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200, Radiohead Debuts at No. 3
5/15/2016 by Keith Caulfield

Drake’s Views holds at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart for a second week, while Radiohead logs the week’s highest debut, at No. 3, with A Moon Shaped Pool.

Views earned another 313,000 equivalent album units in the week ending May 12, according to Nielsen Music (with 175,000 of that in pure album sales), as A Moon Shaped Pool launches with 181,000 units (173,000 in sales). (This story was updated on May 16 to correct Views' total units for the new week. The album's sales figure did not change.)

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new May 28-dated chart (where Views is No. 1 for a second week) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, May 17.

Views tallied a 70 percent decline in units compared to its debut frame a week ago (1.04 million units), while its sales collapsed by 79 percent (falling from 852,000 to 175,000).

That said, Views has quickly sold more than a million copies (1.03 million) in just two weeks' time, and it is the first album released in 2016 to surpass 1 million copies sold.

Only two albums have sold more than a million this year: Views, and Adele’s 25, which was released in 2015. 25 sold 1.27 million in 2016, of its total 8.71 million.

Beyonce’s Lemonade holds at No. 2 on the new Billboard 200 with 202,000 units (down 27 percent). The former No. 1 album sold another 153,000 copies in pure album sales (down 22 percent).

Radiohead’s A Moon Shaped Pool (No. 3) is the band’s sixth top 10 album, and first studio effort since 2011’s The King of Limbs also debuted at No. 3 (its peak) on the April 23, 2011-dated list. (It bowed with 69,000 copies sold.)

A Moon Shaped Pool’s start of 173,000 albums sold is Radiohead’s largest sales week since 2003, when Hail to the Thief debuted (and peaked) at No. 3 with 300,000 sold.

Radiohead’s new album was released on Sunday, May 8, so it had two fewer days of sales and streams supporting its debut on the chart. (Nielsen Music’s tracking week for the Billboard 200 runs from Friday through Thursday each week, and most new albums are released on Fridays.)

Next up on the Billboard 200, Keith Urban nabs his sixth top 10 effort with his new album Ripcord, as it debuts at No. 4 with 106,000 units (93,000 in pure album sales). His last album, 2013’s Fuse, debuted at No. 1 with 98,000 copies sold.

Prince’s The Very Best of Prince rounds out the top five, as it slips one rung to No. 5 with 77,000 units (up 10 percent) and 65,000 copies sold (up 17 percent).

Cole Swindell’s You Should Be Here grants the country singer his second top 10 album, as it enters at No. 6 with 76,000 units and 65,000 copies sold. He previously hit the region with his self-titled set back in 2014, which debuted and peaked at No. 3 (63,000 copies sold).

Rihanna’s Anti dips two spots to No. 7 (48,000 units; down 6 percent), Prince and the Revolution’s Purple Rain falls 3-8 (43,000 units; down 43 percent) and Adele’s 25 climbs 10-9 (41,000 units; up 47 percent -- 34,000 in album sales; up 52 percent). 25 benefits from NBC TV’s encore presentation of Adele’s Live in New York City concert special on May 6. The show was first broadcast in Dec. 2015, and its new airing boasted five songs not seen in the original special (including one from 25: "Water Under the Bridge").

Chris Stapleton’s Traveller closes out the top 10, falling two positions to No. 10 with 31,000 units (down 2 percent).
