"Scorpion" has earned the largest second week of sales in over two years.
Drake's Scorpion has maintained its position at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for a second week, Billboard reports. The album has moved 335,000 equivalent album units, down from 732,000 last week. Only 29,000 of this week's figure comes from traditional album sales while the rest is the result of streaming. The album has earned the largest second week of sales in over 2 years. The last project to do numbers this big in week two was Adele's 25, which moved 1.16 million in its follow-up week in 2015. This makes for Drake's 23rd week at No. 1 on the album charts. The only two rappers ahead of him in that category are Eminem (32) and Jay-Z (25).
Future's Beastmode 2, which was a stream-only release, debuts at No. 3 with 57,000 units. The project is his ninth to hit the top ten of the Billboard 200. It is also the highest-charting album released as a streaming exclusive, surpassing Chance The Rapper's Coloring Book which debuted at No. 8 with 38,000 units in 2016.
Meek Mill's Legends Of The Summer EP has debuted at No. 9, making it the fifth of the Philly rapper's projects to hit the top ten.
