Nick Jonas’ third studio album, Last Year Was Complicated, makes its debut at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, while Drake’s VIEWS continues to hold the top spot for the seventh straight week.

According to Billboard, Jonas’ latest effort sold 66,000 units this week, with 47,000 of that amount in traditional album sales. Last Year Was Complicated has already trumped Who I Am's (with the Administration) No. 3 peak, as well as the No. 6 peak of his self-titled album.

For VIEWS, it’s the first album by a male that has spent seven weeks at  No. 1 in about 16 years. The last album to do it was Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP between June 10 and July, 29, 2000.

Billboard breaks down the most popular albums of the week through these various metrics: traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA), and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). VIEWS’ units this week were as follows: SEA was 74,000 units—that sum translates into 110.5 million streams for the tracks on the album (as each SEA unit is equal to 1,500 streams). Traditional album sales for VIEWS added up to 27,000, while TEA totaled 21,000 for the week.

At No. 3 on the chart is the original Broadway cast recording of Hamilton, which shot up from No. 13 to No. 3 after almost sweeping this year’s Tony Awards. The musical had a record 16 nominations, and won 11 Tony Awards, including best new musical and best original score.
