Drake has scored the second biggest album sales week of the year in America as “Nothing Was the Same” rockets to the Billboard 200 top spot.

The rapper’s new release picked up 658,000 sales to debut at number one ahead of new albums by Elton John, Cher and Kings of Leon.

Only Justin Timberlake has landed more sales in one week – his “The 20/20 Experience” debuted with 968,000 copies sold in March.

Kings of Leon’s “Mechanical Bull” debuts at two on the new chart with 110,000 first-week sales and Cher lands her highest solo debut ever at three with “Closer to the Truth,” her first album since 2002′s “Living Proof.”

Elton John’s “The Diving Board” opens at four to give him his 18th top 10.

Last week’s No. 1, Jack Johnson’s “From Here to Now to You,” falls to five on the new countdown.
