With all the records Drake has broken with the release of Scorpion, it was only a matter of time before he took over the Billboard charts. With the Hot 100 officially being updated tomorrow, Drake’s name will be attached to 27 singles on the list. All 25 tracks from the Scorpion album will have a placement with seven cracking the top 10.
“Nice for What” will regain its position s the number one record, achieving the top spot for the fourth time since it entered the charts 13 weeks ago. The second spot on the chart also belongs to Drake with the second track on the album in “Nonstop.” Chart mainstay “God’s Plan” clocks in at number four with “In My Feelings,” “I’m Upset,” “Emotionless,” and the Michael Jackson assisted “Don’t Matter to Me” also in the top 10.
Speaking of Michael Jackson, the achievement leads Drake past the King of Pop for the most top 10 singles and is now tied with former bad Rihanna.
Drake acknowledging the achievement, hit Instagram to share the Billboard Chart and captioning it “All 7’s…” One has to wonder if the focus on the number seven another subliminal to another artist who has crafted seven-track albums. You would have to ask Drake that one.
Hip-Hop’s presence is heavy on the chart with Cardi B coming in twice and surveying the Drake surge with “I Like It” at number three and her feature on Maroon 5’s “Girl Like You” at number five. XXXTentacion’s life is continued to be celebrated with “Sad!” holding down the ten spot. Check out Drake’s celebratory Instagram below.
