Drake ‘s latest album, Scorpion was bound to do numbers. The rapper dominated the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for the majority of the year with “Nice For What” and “God’s Plan.” Needless to say, the rapper’s latest project was one of his most anticipated albums of 2018 based off the hype of those two songs alone. Drizzy debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 which wasn’t a shock to anyone.
However, his latest feat on the Billboard Hot 100 finds him breaking the record the Beatles’ held since 1964. After Scorpion debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, Drake also has seven songs off of the project dominating the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.
His latest feat breaks the Beatles’ record of five songs in the top 10 back in 1964. “Nice For What” reclaims the top spot on the chart while “Nonstop” follows it at number 2.
In addition, “God’s Plan” is at number 4, “In My Feelings” debuts at number 6, “I’m Upset” climbs 19 positions to number 7. “Emotionless” and the Michael Jackson assisted, “Don’t Matter To Me” both debut at 8 and 9, respectively.
While the rapper beat out The Beatles’ record, he also surpassed Michael Jackson for the total amount of Hot 100 top 10 entries. Drake’s career total is currently at 31 while Michael Jackson sits at 30 with the inclusion of “Don’t Matter To Me.”
Drake also broke his own record for the most concurrent Hot 100 titles with 27 songs, including all 25 songs off Scorpion, landing on the chart.
