“Drake has been unstoppable this year – he’s a true global superstar,” said Stefan Blom, Spotify’s Chief Content & Chief Strategy Officer. ”With the top album and the top song this year, as well as his successful Summer Sixteen tour, Drake continues to engage his fans in a way that only Drake can; it’s no surprise he is dominating the music industry.”

Rock band Pierce the Veil claims its highest charting album ever, and best sales week yet, as Misadventures bows at No. 4 with 54,000 units (50,000 in traditional album sales). The group’s previous largest week came when its last album, 2012’s Collide With the Sky, launched at No. 12 with 27,000 sold.

Drake’s new album, Views, has been streamed over 250 million times and has so far sold 1.2 million copies (this includes the streaming album equivalents).
Over 200 million of Views’ streams have originated in the US, and the album has also sold more than 1 million digital copies through iTunes around the world. Its domestic sales totals aren’t clear yet, but Billboard forecasted over 850,000 digital album sales earlier this week. That’d be the highest total for a male artist since Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience was released over three years ago. When you add in its streaming figures and individual track sales, the album is on pace to move over 1 million equivalent album units in the US alone. (The international figure is closer to 1.2 million.)
