The album held its ground on top for nine weeks in a row before Blink-182’s California opened in No. 1 last week. According to Nielsen Music (via Billboard), Views, with an additional 92,000 album units sold, is back on top.
Appropriately, Views becomes the 10th album to reach 10 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the last 20 years. Adele’s 21 and 25, the soundtracks to Titanic and Frozen, Santana’s Supernatural, Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill, Taylor Swift’s 1989 and Fearless, and Backstreet Boys’ Millennium account for the other nine.
Views also marks the album with the most weeks at No. 1 by a solo male artist. Billy Ray Cyrus was the last to hold this distinction for Some Gave All.
