It doesn't look like Drake and his hit album Views is ready to give up the top spot just yet. Views spent another week at number one on the Billboard 200 which Radiohead's A Moon Shaped Pool debuted at number three.

"Views earned another 219,000 equivalent album units in the week ending May 12, according to Nielsen Music (with 175,000 of that in pure album sales), as A Moon Shaped Pool launches with 181,000 units (173,000 in sales)," according to Billboard.

Despite a reports 79 percent drop in album sales for Drake's Views, Drake still managed to reach over 1 million copies sold and it solidifies him as being the first artist to reach that mark in 2016.

With the viral success and surprise visual album that was Beyonce's Lemonade, the singer has had a steady hold at number two on the charts.
