Drake really knocked it out of the park with his latest album Certified Lover Boy, so it’s not a surprise to see him return to the top of the charts time and time again. His latest LP topped the Billboard 200 chart for its fourth nonconsecutive week.

Drake achieved his latest chart success with 94,000 equivalent album units earned during Certified Lover Boy’s latest week on the Billboard 200. The Canadian rapper wasn’t facing any tough competition this time around, and he was followed by Don Toliver’s Life of Don in the no. 2 spot with 68,000 equivalent album units earned.

Drake’s latest studio effort previously stopped several hit albums from reaching the no. 1 spot. Most notably, it stopped Lil Nas X from scoring his first debut no. 1 album with Montero, but it was eventually replaced at the top spot by YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s Sincerely, Kentrell.

Certified Lover Boy was released on September 3rd, becoming Drake’s 10th no. 1 album in the U.S. It produced more top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart than any album in history, with the lead single “Way 2 Sexy” featuring Future and Young Thug debuting at no. 1.
