Drake’s “VIEWS” Breaks Sales & Streaming Record, Dethrones Eminem’s “Recovery”


Drake is on the road to being #1 on next week’s Sales Plus Streaming (SPS) chart for the sixth week in a row, longer than any male solo artist in the last 10 years, beating out Eminem, Josh Groban and Michael Bublé.

Drizzy’s SPS total for VIEWS is now at 1.93 million, Hits Daily Double reports.

Eminem’s 2010 Grammy-winning album Recovery, which sold 754k units in its first week, stayed at #1 for five consecutive weeks prior to VIEWS snatching that spot this week. He was the first artist to sell one million records in pure digital sales.


Drake’s consistent record breaking has been epochal since he released his fourth studio album, VIEWS in April. The project sold a whopping 1.2 million units worldwide within six days of its release while the songs on the project have reportedly been streamed over one billion times in the U.S. alone.
