Drake's Views enters double-digit territory at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, as the album jumps 2-1 to collect a 10th nonconsecutive week atop the list. The set earned another 92,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 14 (down 22 percent), according to Nielsen Music.

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 30-dated chart (where Views is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard's websites on Tuesday, July 19.

Views spent its first nine weeks on the chart at No. 1, then stepped aside a week ago for Blink-182, which opened at No. 1 with California. The latter album slips to No. 3 in its second week with 37,000 units (down 80 percent).

Views is only the 10th album in the last 20 years to spend 10 weeks at No. 1. (See list, below.)

Albums With 10 Weeks (Or More) at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the Last 20 Years:

Artist, Title - Weeks at No. 1 - First Week at No. 1

Adele, 21 - 24 - March 12, 2011
Soundtrack, Titanic - 16 - Jan. 24, 1998
Soundtrack, Frozen - 13 - Jan. 18, 2014
Santana, Supernatural - 12 - Oct. 30, 1999
Alanis Morissette, Jagged Little Pill - 11 - Oct. 7, 1995 (its last week at No. 1 was on Sept. 7, 1996)
Taylor Swift, 1989 - 11 - Nov. 15, 2014
Taylor Swift, Fearless - 11 - Nov. 29, 2008
Adele, 25 - 10 - Dec. 12, 2015
Backstreet Boys, Millennium - 10 - June 5, 1999
Drake, Views - 10 - May 21, 2016

In addition, Views now has the most weeks at No. 1 for an album by a solo male artist since Billy Ray Cyrus' Some Gave All wrapped a 17-week run at No. 1 on Oct. 30, 1992. (Views surpasses Usher's nine-week run at No. 1 with Confessions in 2004.)

Views' reign at No. 1 is driven mainly by its strong popularity on streaming services. In the latest tracking frame, 58,000 of its units were powered by SEA (63 percent of the album's total units for the week).

That said, it's not as if the album hasn't sold well. Views is the highest-selling album released in 2016, with 1.34 million copies sold. It's the second-biggest selling album overall in 2016, behind Adele's 25 (which was released in 2015) with 1.44 million. (25 has sold 8.88 million overall.)

At No. 2 on the new Billboard 200 is ScHoolboy Q's debuting Blank Face LP, with 74,000 units (of which 52,000 are in traditional album sales). The set also launches at No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart, which ranks the top selling albums of the week.

Blank Face LP is ScHoolboy Q's second top 10 album on the Billboard 200, and follows his No. 1-debuting Oxymoron effort in 2014. The latter started with 139,000 copies sold.

Blank Face LP is the fifth album to debut at No. 2 behind the sturdy Views. It follows Red Hot Chili Peppers' The Getaway, Nick Jonas' Last Year Was Complicated, Dierks Bentley's Black and Ariana Grande's Dangerous Woman. (The latter four titles all peaked in their debut week, blocked from the top slot by Views.)

92k :hhh:

Doing more than some people's first week numbers in its 11th week.

Almost at 3m SPS w/o HLB.
I lowkey wish Schoolboy Q got the #1 album this week, but can't say I'm not happy Drake got his 10th week. Tomorrow, One Dance does 10 weeks, too. I know Punch and Top Dawg are LIVID right now.
