Drake’s ‘Certified Lover Boy’ Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200  

Drake capped off the hype for Certified Lover Boy by landing at number one and doing it going away. CLB is the top album on Billboard's 200 chart this week. The album sold 613,000 equivalent album units. This is Drake's 10th number one album. He is one of only eight artists to have that many. Drake ties Kanye West, Eminem, and Elvis Presley, who also have ten number 1s. It's the biggest week for any album in over a year. Taylor Swift's Folklore sold 846,000 units in its first week in August 2020. CLB also has the largest week for a rap album since Drake's Scorpion in 2018. To add more numbers, songs from CLB had 743.7 million on-demand streams last week. Only one other album has had more than that. Guesses? Yes, Drake's Scorpion.
