Drake Dominates Billboard Hot 100 Chart With 7 Songs In Top 10
With having the No. 1 album in the US with ‘Scorpion’, Drake has 7 songs from his new album, currently charting in the Top 10 simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100.
The singer/rapper has broken The Beatles 1964 record of charting 5 songs in the Top 10 at once (though they remain the only artist to have dominated the entire Top 5).
Drake earns five new Hot 100 top 10s, bringing his career total to 31, surpassing Michael Jackson for the most among male soloists, according to Billboard. One of those new top 10s, “Don’t Matter to Me” (No. 9), features the King of Pop, who earns his 30th top 10.
“Nice for What” also returns to No. 1 this week. “Nonstop” debuts at No. 2, followed by last week’s chart-topper, Cardi B’s “I Like It” featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin. “God’s Plan” takes the No. 4 spot, while “In My Feelings,” “I’m Upset,” and the Mariah Carey-sampled “Emotionless” place 6-8.
Drake took to his Instagram page to acknowledge this achievement with a photo of the top 10 with the caption “All 7’s…”
Outside of the top 10, Drake has 27 songs overall on this week’s Hot 100, breaking his own record for most simultaneously charted entries. All 25 tracks from Scorpion appear on the chart.
