Drake has seven songs in the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 –> breaking the record set by The Beatles in 1964 (they had five).
Drake’s Scorpion album also just hit 1 BILLION streams! It’s the first time an album has done that in just one week [CNN].
Aubrey Drake Graham (aka Drake) now has a 31 top ten songs in his career, passing Michael Jackson for the most (among male solo artists). Ironically, Michael Jackson’s 30th top-10 was due to being sampled on Drake’s “Don’t Matter to Me” which is at #9 on the chart.
Drake is now tied with Rihanna for 3rd place on the list of most career Billboard Hot 100 top-ten hits. Madonna leads with 38, followed by The Beatles with 34.
Here are Drake’s current Billboard Hot 100 top ten songs:
1. “Nice for What”
3. “God’s Plan”
6. “In My Feelings”
7. “I’m Upset”
9. “Don’t Matter to Me” featuring Michael Jackson
Side note: Apparently Drake addresses his son, on two tracks off Scorpion [rap-up.com].
“Yesterday morning was crazy,” — “I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe / That shit’s in stone, sealed and signed / She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine.”
