“Certified Lover Boy” has found comfort in being on top.

Drake’s new album has remained No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for the second straight week.

The Grammy winner’s sixth studio effort moved an additional 246,000 units after opening week sales of 613,000 units — the most of any album this year.

Meanwhile, Kanye West’s much-hyped “Donda” opus stays in the No. 2 position, amassing 79,000 units.

Drake, whose given name is Aubrey Drake Graham, is also continuing his record-breaking run dominating the Hot 100 again with nine of the top 10 songs this week.

“Way 2 Sexy” (featuring Future and Young Thug), is at the top of the list, followed by “Girls Wants Girls” at No. 2, “Fair Trade” at No. 3, “Champagne Poetry” coming in at No. 4, and “Knife Talk” hitting No. 5.

Drake’s possible clean sweep of the top 10 was interrupted by The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber, who have the No. 6 song, “Stay.”

 

The other “Certified Lover Boy” tracks in the top 10 are “In the Bible,” “Papi’s Home,” “TSU” and “Love All.”

The follow-up to the five-times-platinum-certified 2018 “Scorpion” album, Drake’s latest features Jay-Z, Travis Scott, Rick Ross, Future, Young Thug, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Ty Dolla $ign, Kid Cudi, 21 Savage and more.

The Toronto native also known as Champagne Papi (and Drizzy) has received eight BET Hip Hop Awards nominations, including Hip Hop Artist of the year. The ceremony is set to air Oct. 5 on BET.

Drake’s – whose expanding his brand into sports with a recent ESPN partnership – has recently partnered with Nike for a golf fashion collection.

The NOCTA golf line is described as a “a testament to Drake’s admiration for the game,” and expected to go on sale Thursday.
