Amazing sales for Drake. It's been noted on the internet that Views sold a lot more in its first week but this one is an improvement from the first week of More Life, and 732k units is brilliant for anyone† considering the quick downfall in pure album sales especially in the hip-hop genre.

† except perhaps Taylor Swift, that would probably be a flop by her standards.

Drake Earns Eighth No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart With 'Scorpion,' Sets New Streaming Record
7/8/2018 by Keith Caulfield

Drake’s Scorpion album makes a smashing, streaming-powered debut atop the Billboard 200 chart, as the set opens with the largest overall week of 2018 for any album.

Scorpion, which was released on June 29 via Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records, bows with 732,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending July 5 according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 160,000 were in traditional album sales.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). As of this week, each unit equals one traditional album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from one album (a TEA unit), or 1,250 paid subscription on-demand audio song streams from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported on-demand audio song streams from an album (an SEA unit). (The weighting of an SEA unit was updated with the July 14-dated charts.)

Here’s a look at some of the feats and figures associated with Scorpion’s arrival at No. 1:

Drake’s Eighth No. 1 Album: Scorpion is Drake’s eighth consecutive No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 -- the entirety of his full-length releases. His only charting album to miss the top slot was his debut EP, So Far Gone, which bowed and peaked at No. 6 in 2009.

Drake ties Kanye West and Eminem for the second-most credited No. 1 albums among hip-hop acts in the history of the chart. Only JAY-Z is ahead of them, as he owns 14 chart-toppers. (Among all acts, The Beatles have the most No. 1s with 19.)

Record-Tying Eight Straight No. 1s: Drake has earned all eight of his Billboard 200 No. 1s consecutively, tying West, Eminem and The Beatles for the longest streak of No. 1s. West had most recently joined the exclusive club when Ye bowed atop the June 16-dated chart.

Biggest Streaming Week Ever for an Album: The 25-track Scorpion charges in with a new one-week record for on-demand audio streams generated by an album’s songs: 745.92 million. It beats the previous record-holder, Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys, when it arrived with 431.3 million on the May 12-dated chart. Post Malone now has the second-biggest streaming week.

Drake now has four out of the 10 biggest streaming weeks for an album: Scorpion is No. 1, followed by 2017’s More Life’s debut frame (the No. 3 largest, with 384.84 million), More Life’s second week (No. 6 with 253.49 million) and the opening week of 2016’s Views (No. 7 with 245.09 million).

First Album to Hit 1 Billion Streams for Its Songs Globally in a Single Week: Industry sources previously confirmed to Billboard that Scorpion is the first album to spur 1 billion on-demand audio streams, globally, for its songs in a single week.

Largest Overall Week of 2018 for an Album: Scorpion’s big bow of 732,000 equivalent album units is the biggest week for any album in 2018. It's also the largest since Taylor Swift’s reputation, which started with 1.24 million units at No. 1 (Dec. 2, 2017-dated chart).

The bulk of Scorpion’s starting sum was driven by streams, as it garnered 551,000 SEA units. The remainder of its total unit sum was comprised of 21,000 TEA units and 160,000 in traditional album sales. Drake’s last album, More Life, bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 505,000 equivalent album units total, of which 257,000 were SEA units, 23,000 were TEA units and 226,000 were traditional album sales.

Biggest Week for an R&B/Hip-Hop Album in Over Two Years: Scorpion’s start of 732,000 units is the largest week for an R&B/hip-hop album since Drake’s own Views launched with 1.04 million units at No. 1 (on the May 21, 2016-dated chart).

While Scorpion launches with over three times as many streams as Views tallied in its first week (745.9 million vs. 245.9 million), Views was able to earn a bigger overall unit number (1.04 million) because it had a much more robust bow in terms of traditional album sales. Views sold 851,000 albums in its first week, all from digital downloads. (The CD didn’t go on sale until its second week of availability). Comparatively, Scorpion sold 160,000 copies, all via digital download. Scorpion will be issued on CD on July 13.

Florence + The Machine, Gorillaz Debut in Top 10 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart
7/8/2018 by Keith Caulfield

As Drake’s Scorpion album swoops in to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, Florence + The Machine and Gorillaz log their latest top 10s on the tally with High as Hope and The Now Now, respectively.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). As of this week, each unit equals one traditional album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from one album (a TEA unit), or 1,250 paid subscription on-demand audio song streams from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported on-demand audio song streams from an album (an SEA unit). (The weighting of an SEA unit was updated with the July 14-dated charts.)

As previously reported, Drake’s Scorpion starts at No. 1 with 732,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending July 5, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 160,000 were in traditional album sales. The album launches with a new one-week U.S. record for on-demand audio streams generated by an album’s songs: 745.9 million.

Florence + The Machine’s High as Hope bows at No. 2 with 84,000 units (74,000 in traditional album sales). High as Hope is the third top 10 effort for the act, following their last album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful in 2015 (No. 1) and Ceremonials (No. 6 in 2011). How Big bowed with 137,000 units, of which 128,000 were in traditional album sales.

High as Hope was ushered in by the single “Hunger,” which has spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart through the most-recently-published list dated July 7.

Post Malone’s former No. 1, beerbongs & bentleys, holds steady at No. 3 with 72,000 units (down 3 percent).

Animated band Gorillaz log its fifth top 10 effort, as The Now Now starts at No. 4 with 63,000 units (52,000 in traditional album sales). The act’s last album, 2017’s Humanz, launched at No. 2 with 140,000 units (115,000 in album sales).

XXXTentacion’s ? moves down one rung on the new Billboard 200 to No. 5 with 62,000 units (down 28 percent), Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy is up two places to No. 6 with 47,000 units (up 10 percent), Juice WRLD’s Goodbye & Good Riddance is stationary at No. 7 with 39,000 units (down 11 percent) and The Carters’ Everything Is Love falls 4-8 with 37,000 units (down 38 percent).

Rounding out the new top 10 is Guns N’ Roses’ former No. 1, Appetite for Destruction. The band’s classic debut album, released in 1987, re-enters the chart at No. 10 following the release of its deluxe remastered reissue on June 29. For tracking and charting purposes, all versions of the album are combined. In the week ending July 5, the album earned 33,000 units (up 1,541 percent).

The album was reissued in a variety of formats: the standard 12-track remastered album, a new deluxe edition with 18 bonus tracks, a double vinyl LP set, a 73-track super deluxe set and a lavish limited edition Locked N’ Loaded box set with four CDs, a blu-ray disc, seven vinyl LPs and seven 7” vinyl singles (among other goodies).

Appetite for Destruction debuted on the Billboard 200 dated Aug. 29, 1987 at No. 182 and eventually reached No. 1 nearly a year later, on the Aug. 6, 1988-dated list. The set spent five nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1, and finished 1988 as the No. 6 biggest album on the Billboard 200.

Appetite for Destruction was last in the top 10 a little more than 29 years ago, when it placed at No. 8 on the April 15, 1989-dated tally.

What do we think, can Drake manage 10+ weeks at #1 like he did with Views? His competition looks slim for most of Q3, even with the amount of artists that will be doing ticket deals on their release week to boost sales. I think Ariana has a much better chance of a #1 album this time!

That seems like really underwhelming sales for 'Scorpion' tbh, considering his record smashing on the Hot 100! I know the streaming formula has changed and maybe he'd have had higher numbers under the old formula but he did something like 800k on pure sales first week with 'Views', so to drop to just 160k this time is pretty terrible really.
