Drake, the Scorpion has left him in a new category, as the first artist to reach a billion streams a week. With a total of 732,171 equivalent album units moved (159,771 in pure album sales and a record of transmission of count 745,923,606), Drizzy was untouchable.

Scorpion has the honor of having the greatest debut of 2018, until now. And, with this latest #1, Drake is now tied with other pop stars for the sixth-most #1 albums in the history of the united states. Kenny Chesney, Madonna, U2, Eminem and Kanye West — who recently picked up her eighth chart-topping album — are equally adorned.

Debuted at #2 on the Top R&B Albums chart not to do too much for Teyana Taylor K. T. S. E. The project fell to #57 on the Billboard 200 after making his debut in the #17. With 10,903 equivalent album units moved (1,829 in pure album sales and streaming count 11,297,723), the album fell 53% from its first week numbers.

This is just the latest in a series of falterings by K. T. S. E. — Taylor recently announced that she would not be the release of a "complete" version of the album that contained the missing content.
