Drake's 'Views' Earns Fifth Consecutive Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200

Also on this week's list, Dierks Bentley scores his highest-charting album yet with 'Black' (No. 2) and Fifth Harmony collects their third top 10 effort with '7/27' (No. 4).

AceShowbiz - Drake continues ruling Billboard 200 with "Views". The rapper's latest studio effort is now spending its fifth consecutive week at the chart's No. 1 with another 152,000 equivalent album units collected in the week ending June 2.

That figure includes 37,000 in traditional album sales and 92,000 units in streaming equivalent albums (SEA). As Billboard counts 1,500 streams as one album, it means "Views" was streamed nearly 138 million during the tracking week.

Next on this week's Billboard 200, Dierks Bentley posts his highest-charting album yet with "Black" that debuts at No. 2 with 101,000 units. With 88,000 in pure album sales, the record gives the country crooner his best sales week yet as it surpasses the 82,000 copies earned by 2006's "Long Trip Alone".

At No. 3 is Beyonce Knowles' former No. 1 "Lemonade". It jumps from last week's No. 4 with 79,000 units. Fifth Harmony's "7/27" follows behind at No. 4 with 74,000 units. The five-piece's sophomore record, powered by the hit "Work from Home" that has so far peaked at No. 4 on Billboard Hot 100, becomes their third top 10 album, following their 2015 debut set "Reflection" and their EP "Better Together".

Blake Shelton's "If I'm Honest" closes out the top 5 as it falls from last week's No. 3 with 63,000. Ariana Grande's "Dangerous Woman" slips four rungs to No. 6 with 50,000 while Rihanna's "Anti" lands at No. 7 with 42,000.

Flume is the third and the last newcomer in the top 10 as his second album "Skin" opens at No. 8 with 31,000 units. This is the 24-year-old Australian star's very first visit to the chart. His self-titled debut album reached No. 12 on the Dance/Electronic Albums and the Heatseekers Albums charts in 2014.

The rest of the top 10 of this week's Billboard 200 is made up of Adele's "25" which stays at No. 9 with another 31,000 units and Twenty One Pilots' "Blurryface" that rises from No. 11 to No. 10 with 28,000.
