Ariana Grande’s thank u, next is number one on the Billboard 200 album chart for the second week in a row.
It becomes the first album by a solo female artist to spend more than one week at the top of the chart in over a year. The last artist to do it was Taylor Swift with reputation, which logged three consecutive weeks at number one in 2017.
Billboard reports that, according to Nielsen Music, thank u, next earned 151,000 equivalent album units in its second week.
Meanwhile, Drake’s So Far Gone mixtape landed at number five on the Billboard 200 chart. The debut earns Drake his 10th total — and 10th consecutive — top 10.
The mixtape was original released for free in 2009, but never distributed to streaming services until February 15 of this year. It’s due out on CD on March 8.
