10. (16) P!nk – “Just Like Fire”

As Drake reigns for a fourth non-consecutive week, the entire top 7 remains static. The only new arrival is P!nk’s “Just Like Fire” which is her 15th top 10 hit and the first for her since “Just Give Me a Reason,” from her last studio album, went to #1 in 2013. “Just Like Fire” is a single from the Alice Through the Looking Glass soundtrack, benefiting from the movie debut in theaters with rising airplay and streaming, in addition to 85,000 downloads sold for the week.

Billboard 200

01. (01) Drake – VIEWS (*5 weeks*)
02. (–) Dierks Bentley – Black
03. (04) Beyoncé – LEMONADE
04. (–) Fifth Harmony – 7/27
05. (03) Blake Shelton – If I’m Honest 
06. (02) Ariana Grande – Dangerous Woman
07. (05) Rihanna – ANTI
08. (–) Flume – Skin 
09. (09) Adele – 25 
10. (11) twenty one pilots – Blurryface

Once again streaming allows VIEWS to claim the top of the Billboard 200, fending off albums that have sold more copies. One of those is Dierk Bentley’s Black, which shifted 88,000 copies in its first week.

Beyoncé’s LEMONADE, which would be #2 this week under the old rules (56,000 sold) is the 3rd album to cross the 1 million mark in sales in 2016 and the second by a female after Adele. Queen Bey is catching up fast on Drake, who enjoyed a bigger debut, but has been losing his selling power rapidly.
