Drake’s “Scorpion” album set a record by posting seven simultaneous singles on the Billboards Top 10. That toppled The Beatles record of five singles set in 1964. Billboard notes the band remains “the only act to monopolize the Hot 100’s entire top five in a week.”
Drake’s rankings are as follows: “Nice for What” at No. 1; “Nonstop” at No. 2; “God’s Plan” at No. 4; “In My Feelings” at No. 6; “I’m Upset” at No. 7; “Emotionless” at No. 8; and “Don’t Matter to Me,” featuring Michael Jackson, at No. 9. And that’s not his only success.
All of this comes on the heels of Drake also notching a streaming record on Spotify.
His record label, Republic Records announced this week that “Scorpion,” Drake’s fifth album, has crossed the one billion mark in total streams – a first for an album in its first week.
For the Billboard charts, Drake also surpassed the late Michael Jackson as the artist with the most Hot 100 Top 10s in his career among solo males.
