Yesterday marked the seven-year anniversary of Drake’s sophomore album “Take Care”.
The classic album produced classic hits such as “Headlines, “Take Care, “Crew Love” and plenty more. The album has spent 169 weeks on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop album charts. This feat has allowed Drake to pass J.Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive for second-most amount of weeks on the chart.
The album standing in the way of Drizzy earning the top spot is Kenny G’s album called “Breathless”. At the moment “Forest Hills Drive” holds third place with 168 weeks on the charts. Billboard has switched its tabulation to include the heavily popular streaming market as well.
Because of the new direction in which music is distributed both albums received significant benefit, as they reappeared on the charts after extended absences. Take Care has spent every week in 2018 on the chart. If Drake’s sophomore album continues the current pace, it could hit the all-time position by the first half of 2019.
