It’s been a spontaneous year for Drake, whose new album,Views,debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 two weeks ago, selling 1.04 million equivalent albums, according to Nielsen Music.
The set sold 852,000 traditional albums, but, more importantly, set a new streaming record with 245.1 million songs from the album streamed in its release week. The Billboard 200 tallies traditional album sales, track equivalent albums, and streaming equivalent albums.Drake’s hotline was definitely bling-ing when the 2016 BET Awards nominations were announced yesterday Friday, May 20. The “Back to Back” rapper scored nine nominations while BET Awards regulars Beyoncé and Rihanna each racked up five. Although Beyoncé’s Lemonade dropped in April and was ineligible for consideration this year, both “Formation” and “Feeling Myself” — her collaboration with Nicki Minaj — were enough to help Queen Bey out.
