Labeling an album as "timeless" is often rooted in opinion or fandom more than straight facts. Yet in the rare case of Drake's sophomore album 'Take Care,' numbers don't lie.

On Monday, 'Take Care' officially reached 400 weeks on the Billboard 200 album chart. That's more than seven and a half years of vibes.

This huge stretch is honestly tough to comprehend. What's even more shocking, though, is that there are 13 projects that have spent more time than 'Take Care' on the chart, proving that a ton of music fans prefer familiarity over what's hot. 

Kendrick Lamar's 'good kid, m.A.A.d city' (418 weeks), Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' (442), and Eminem's 'Curtain Call' (500) are some of the most notable titles up there. Per Hip Hop By The Numbers, 'Curtain Call' is the longest-charting rap album ever.

Overall, Em owns three of the top seven hip-hop spots thanks to 'The Eminem Show' and 'Recovery.'

Unfortunately, Drizzy won't be able to get too excited about this latest accomplishment. He recently posted an Instagram Story suggesting that he's recovering from knee surgery, though the exact injury and what caused it is unknown by the public.

"I actually want to use this post to send love and motivation to anybody else that 2020 let loose on," he wrote under a shot of his right leg locked in a brace. "Start writing the best bounce back story now." (At least he had some extra downtime to catch up on Netflix's 'Unsolved Mysteries.')

Get well soon, Drizzy!
