This might be hard to believe, but Drake just keeps on winning.

In its second full week out, the OVO head honcho's More Life playlist racked up 225k SPS (sales-plus-streams) equivalent units, which brings his two-week, to-date sales total to 730k.

While traditional (digital) sales of More Life—which was just released for physical purchase last Friday (March 31)—accounted for only 43k units sold, Drake's grip over streaming platforms has only continued to tighten.

In total, More Life sold 169k SEA (streaming equivalent album) units in its second week, which is the second-highest mark of all time behind... drum roll, please... Drake's More Life, which set a first-week streaming record the week before with 257k SEA units sold.

When the Billboard 200 chart is updated this Tuesday (April 4), More Life will once again hold down the No. 1 position, doubling up Ed Sheeran's hit album ÷. Last week, More Life debuted at No. 1, which was the Toronto native's seventh consecutive No. 1.
