ScHoolboy Q’s previous album, 2014’s Oxymoron, debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 139,000. However, Blank Face LP is already shaping up to be Q’s most critically acclaimed release and a strong contender for Album of the Year.

As for who stole the top spot on the albums chart this week? Drake’s VIEWS, of course. After being dethroned by Blink-182’s California last week, an additional 92,000 album sales (the majority coming from streaming) helps Drizzy’s double platinum project climb back to No. 1 for its 10th nonconsecutive week. VIEWS is now only the 10th album in the last 20 years to spend at least 10 weeks at No. 1.
