Imagine Dragons oust Drake from Billboard 200 throne

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Alt-rockers Imagine Dragons knocked rapper Drake from the top spot of the weekly U.S. Billboard 200 album chart on Wednesday, after a strategically placed commercial with retail store Target during the Grammy Awards drove up exposure.

"Smoke + Mirrors," the sophomore album from the Las Vegas band, sold 172,000 copies and 172,000 songs, and was streamed 7.6 million times, bringing its total unit tally to 195,000, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan.
