Drake Breaks Historic Billboard Record Set by the Beatles

Congratulations are in order for Drake!

The 31-year-old “God’s Plan” rapper has made Billboard Hot 100 history with his new album Scorpion, as announced on Monday (July 9).

Scorpion currently has seven tracks in the top 10. “Nice for What” has 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.

“Nonstop,” “Gods Plan,” “In My Feelings,” “I’m Upset,” “Emotionless,” and “Don’t Matter To Me” have also made the top 10. This ups Drake‘s career count to 31 Hot 100 top 10′s, passing Michael Jackson for the most among male soloists.

Drake surpasses The Beatles‘ 54-year-old record for the most simultaneous Hot 100 top 10’s and breaks the record for the most simultaneous top 10 debuts.

Scorpion is also “the first album to be streamed over 1 billion times in a week,” across multiple platforms. Additionally, Scorpion emerges as the No. 1 release on the Billboard Top 200, marking his eighth consecutive No. 1 bow on the respective chart.
