Drake returns to number 1 on the official albums list with Certified Lover Boy, denying Lil Nas X to make his chart-topping debut with Montero.

Drake’s latest record bounces from 3 to 1 and tops streams this week – although it was an incredibly close end as less than 500 chart sales separate albums from Top 2, with Lil’s first studio collection. Nas X tops downloads.
