Drake Breaks Record With 9 of Top 10 on Billboard Hot 100
Drake Breaks Record With 9 of Top 10 on Billboard Hot 100: It was obvious Drake’s new album Certified Lover Boy was going to score multiple songs in the top 10 of Billboard Hot 100 with the streaming stats that were emerging. But we didn’t expect that he will own the entire top 10 except one.
Canadian music mogul Drake has become the first artist ever in Billboard chart history to claim as many as nine of the top 10 positions in a single week. The Canadian superstar has the entire top five to himself, a feat previously achieved only by The Beatles for a week in 1964.
The lead single ‘Way 2 Sexy‘ featuring Future & Young Thug launches at No. 1 on the Hot 100, as expected. The Kid LAROI & Justin Bieber’s ‘Stay’ is the only song not his on the rest of the top 10 with all 21 songs from the album debuting on the Hot 100. Billboard breaks down the details below;
Certified Lover Boy debuted at the number 1 spot of Billboard 200 this week with total sales of 613k.
Drake’s Billboard Hot 100 Top 10:
01. “Way 2 Sexy,” feat. Future & Young Thug (67.3 million streams, 7.7 million in airplay audience, 7,000 sold)
