International music star, Drake has achieved new feats by breaking the long standing records of The Beatles & Michael Jackson. The Canadian rapper made Billboard Hot 100 history with his new album Scorpion.
Drake made a statement about dominating the charts on the opening track of the album titled Survival, with the line, “house on both coasts but I live on the charts” and it manifested as seven constituent tracks of the Scorpion album landed in the Billboard top 10 chart, simultaneously.
One of the preludes to the album, Nice For What returned to the top spot on the chart, making it the only song to ever hit No. 1 four times in the chart’s history, while Nonstop, Gods Plan, In My Feelings, I’m Upset, Emotionless, and Don’t Matter To Me also made the chart.
The rapper, with that, surpassed The Beatles’ long-standing record of five simultaneous entries into the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Drake also surpassed the late Michael Jackson as the artist with the most Hot 100 Top 10s in his career among solo males. Drake now has a career total of 31 to Jackson’s 30 with the late King of Pop’s 30th being his appearance on Drake’s new single, Don’t Matter To Me.
