Drake's Scorpion Stays One More Week at N.1 in USA

For a fifth straight week, Drake’s Scorpion rules the Billboard 200 albums chart. The set continues at No. 1, earning 145,000 equivalent album units (down 21 percent) in the week ending Aug. 2, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, just 12,000 were in traditional sales, as the album continues to be overwhelmingly powered by streaming activity.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Aug. 11-dated chart (where Scorpion spends a fifth week at No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard's websites on Tuesday, Aug. 7.
Of Scorpion’s total of 145,000 units earned in the latest tracking week, 123,000 were in SEA units (translating to 169.6 million on-demand audio streams), 11,000 were in TEA units and 12,000 were in traditional album sales.
