Drake is continuing to dominate the Billboard charts. Drizzy’s latest album, Scorpion, held on to its No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 for the fourth week in a row.

The OVO head honcho’s position atop the chart helped give Hip Hop a heavy presence in the Top 10. Six of this week’s Top 10 albums come from Hip Hop artists, including Post Malone and Cardi B.

Elsewhere on the chart, The Internet scored a Top 30 debut with their new album Hive Mind. 88rising also managed to crack the Top 100 with the release of the collective’s Head In The Clouds compilation.

Although Drake has some tough competition coming in August, July has been all about Drizzy on the charts. For the fourth week in a row, his Scorpion album secured the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.

Scorpion beat out its closest contender, Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys, by over 100,000 total album equivalent units for the week. Drake’s double LP moved 184,286 units with just under 15,000 of them being pure album sales.

The Internet released their first album in three years and cracked the Top 30 in doing so. The Odd Future-affiliated band’s Hive Mind debuted at No. 26 off the strength of selling 15,725 total album equivalent units.

Almost half of the units moved came from pure album sales. Syd and the crew raked in 6,944 units in traditional sales.

The 88rising collective managed to get into the Top 100 with their new compilation, Head In The Clouds. While the project was mostly a showcase for the group’s artists, it also featured contributions by rappers such as GoldLink, Playboi Carti and BlocBoy JB.

Head In The Clouds debuted at No. 76, mostly thanks to streaming. The compilation only managed to sell 1,166 copies in traditional sales but was still able to rack up 9,130 total album equivalent units, thanks to about 10.7 million streams.
