It's the first time one label has controlled the top three in more than 15 years.
Republic Records holds the top three slots on the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated July 14) -- the first time any label has pulled off the feat in over 15 years, and the first time Republic has achieved the distinction.
Republic stands tall with Drake’s Scorpion (released on Young Money/Cash Money through Republic) at No. 1, Florence + The Machine’s High as Hope at No. 2, and Post Malone’s former leader beerbongs & bentleys at No. 3.
Monte Lipman, founder and chairman of Republic Records, tells Billboard in a statement: “With our passion for music and pursuit of excellence on behalf of the artist community, we take tremendous pride in this accomplishment. Drake, Florence and Post Malone have released groundbreaking albums that define a generation.”
