The three member alternative rock bank Blink-182 is predicted to dethrone Drake’s reign in no. 1 for his “Views” album, which has been in the top spot for nine consecutive weeks.
Blink-182’s “California” album is set to debut as number 1 for the Billboard 200 albums to be released by July 23.
A Billboard report said that forecasters are eyeing for a 150,000 equivalent album units earned this week. Meanwhile, the Toronto native’s “Views” albums may likely to end with 120,000 units in the same week.
The said Billboard 200 chart ranks the albums every week based on traditional album sales, steaming equivalent albums or SEA, and track equivalent albums or TEA. In July 10, Billboard is set to reveal the week’s top 10.
Blink-182’s California album may be their second no.1 ranking for more than 15 years. The band previously dominated the top spot in 2001 for their Take Off Your Pants and Jacket album. Previously, Blink-182’s Neighborhoods peaked at no. 2 in 2011.
The band’s “Bored to Death,” also part of their California album, has ended their drought in the Alternative Songs airplay as they topped number 1 on the specific category for two weeks already. Blink-182 previously had their number one 12 years ago with their 2004 hit I Miss You.
While Drake have been in the top spot for nine weeks, Eminem only had eight weeks straight in 2000, making him ranked third in the Billboard’s history.
MC Hammer’s “Please Hammer Don’t Hurt ‘Em” remains at number one with 21 weeks back in 1990 and was followed Ice’s “To the Extreme” which stayed at no. 1 for 16 weeks in 1990 to 1991.
