Very surprising chart this week, with a handful of shocking flop debuts. Somehow the second-highest new entry is Jon Bellion, who I'm pretty sure is only known for featuring on a Zedd single despite also being an established songwriter. Nick Jonas improves on the #6 debut of his previous album, which opened with 37K and the #3 debut of that Nick Jonas and the Administration album in 2010, but that opened with higher sales of 82K.

On the other hand, Chrisette Michele has her lowest debut to date, giving her an albums run of 29-1-25-12-73. That #1 looks so strange now. Kongos had a hit single two years ago but only manage #79 with their follow-up album. Most surprising is Little Big Town at #102, after their previous three albums went top 10. I didn't even know they released something until now, it was apparently a surprise which didn't help. And it's not a country album so it's anyone's guess who they expected to buy it. They're generally great though so I'll listen to it.

Finally, two Christina Grimmie albums sneak into the chart following her unfortunate death. RIP.

Nick Jonas Debuts at No. 2 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart, Drake's 'Views' Steady at No. 1
6/19/2016 by Keith Caulfield

As Drake’s Views stays put at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 -- for a seventh week -- Nick Jonas’ Last Year Was Complicated arrives at No. 2 and the Hamilton cast album hits the top 10 for the first time, rising 13-3.

Views earned 121,000 equivalent album units in the week ending June 16, according to Nielsen Music (down 10 percent for the week).

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 July 2-dated chart (where Jonas debuts and Hamilton surges) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, June 21.

Of Views’ units for the week, the bulk are comprised of SEA: 74,000 units (down 10 percent). That hefty sum translates into 110.5 million streams for the tracks on the album (as each SEA unit is equal to 1,500 streams). Traditional album sales for Views in the week added up to 27,000 (down 16 percent), while TEA totaled 21,000 (down 6 percent).

Views is the first album by a male to spend seven consecutive weeks at No. 1 in nearly 16 years. Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP was the last to do so, as it racked up its eight total weeks at No. 1 (all in a row) between June 10-July 29, 2000.

The last album by any act to spend seven weeks straight at No. 1 was Adele’s 25, which spent its first seven frames in the penthouse following its debut on the Dec. 12, 2015-dated chart.

And, lastly, Drake’s Views has the most weeks at No. 1 for an album by a man since Eminem’s Recovery also ruled for seven (nonconsecutive) weeks in 2010.

Jonas debuts at No. 2 on the new Billboard 200 with his latest album, Last Year Was Complicated. It marks his highest charting solo effort, trumping the No. 3 peak of Who I Am (Jonas with The Administration) and No. 6 peak of his self-titled album.

The new set starts with 66,000 units earned in the week, with 47,000 of that in traditional album sales. His last album, his eponymous release, bowed at No. 6 with 37,000 sold.

Jonas’ largest sales week was earned when Who I Am debuted with 82,000 sold back in 2010.

Of course, Jonas was also part of the sibling trio the Jonas Brothers, which notched five top 10 albums. Two of those efforts hit No. 1: A Little Bit Longer and Lines, Vines and Trying Times.

Jonas’ new album was led by the single “Close,” featuring Tove Lo, which recently gave Jonas his third top 40-charting single on the Billboard Hot 100.

At No. 3 on the Billboard 200 is the original Broadway cast recording of Hamilton, which zooms from No. 13 to No. 3 following its huge night at the Tony Awards on June 12. (The set earned 62,000 units -- up 119 percent, with 45,000 of that in traditional album sales -- up 164 percent). This is Hamilton’s first week in the top 10, as it had previously topped out at No. 11. It debuted at No. 12.

Hamilton is now the highest charting cast recording since 2011, when The Book of Mormon also rose to No. 3 in the wake of its multiple Tony Award wins.

Hamilton won 11 Tony Awards, including best musical and performed a number of times on the CBS broadcast of the awards.

Hamilton and The Book of Mormon are the highest charting cast recordings since 1969, when Hair spent 13 weeks at No. 1. They are the only cast albums to reach the top 10 in the past 50 years.

Hamilton’s sales haul of 45,000 is the largest for a cast recording since… The Book of Mormon back in 2011. After the Tony Awards, Mormon sold 61,000 copies, fueled in part by a $1.99 sale price in the Amazon MP3 store. (That said, Hamilton didn’t escape the sale pricing last week; it was marked down to $3.99 in the Google Play store for a portion of the tracking week.)

Mormon’s 61,000 sales week continues to be the largest for a cast recording since Nielsen Music began tracking sales in 1991.

Beyonce’s Lemonade dips 2-4 with 56,000 (down 19 percent).

After charting six hits on the Billboard + Twitter Emerging Artists chart, Jon Bellion arrives on the Billboard 200 with his debut studio release, The Human Condition. The album bows at No. 5 with 40,000 units (32,000 in traditional album sales).

Bellion co-wrote, and was featured on, Zedd’s hit single “Beautiful Now,” which reached No. 5 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs in 2015 and No. 64 on the Hot 100. Bellion also co-wrote two further Hot 100 hits: Eminem’s No. 1 smash “The Monster,” featuring Rihanna, and Jason Derulo’s top 20 single “Trumpets.”

As for the rest of the top 10: Rihanna’s Anti is stationary at No. 6 (37,000 units; down 7 percent), Twenty One Pilots’ Blurryface climbs 10-7 (32,000; up 4 percent) and Adele’s 25 rises 11-8 (28,000; down 5 percent). Blake Shelton’s If I’m Honest is a non-mover at No. 9 (28,000; down 15 percent) and Chris Stapleton’s Traveller closes out the region, ascending 14-10 (27,000; up 7 percent).
