Drake’s For All The Dogs album is back at the Number 1 spot on the Billboard 200, for a second week atop the list, rising 4-1 with 145,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending November 23 (up 102%), according to Luminate. 

Nearly all of its units were driven by streaming activity. The album’s return to the top is fueled largely by its deluxe reissue on November 17 with six new songs, dubbed For All The Dogs ‘Scary Hours’ Edition

All versions of the album are combined for tracking and charting purposes.

Of For All The Dogs’ 145,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending November 23, SEA units comprise 141,500 (up 99%, equaling 190.23 million on-demand official streams of the set’s 29 tracks, inclusive of its six added songs), album sales comprise 2,000 (up 884%) and TEA units comprising 1,500 (up 456%). 

An earlier report by Billboard also shows that Drake’s First Person Shooter, which features J. Cole, launched at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs chart. 

The collaboration, from Drake’s LP For All The Dogs, which concurrently debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, is his 13th Hot 100 leader, tying him with the late Michael Jackson for the most in the list’s history among solo males, and fourth among all acts. This led to J. Cole’s first Hot 100 No. 1. 

Drake, meanwhile, charts seven songs in the Hot 100’s top 10, including six debuts, upping his record total to 76 career top 10 hits. 

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official and official video), radio airplay, and sales data, the lattermost metric reflecting purchases of physical singles and digital tracks from full-service digital music retailers; digital single sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) are excluded from the chart calculations. 

Drake’s son, Adonis, is also reportedly on his way to pursuing his father’s career. 

The 6-year-old upcoming musician has a song titled My Man’s Freestyle.
