NEW YORK (AP) — Drake officially owns the Billboard charts, where seven of his songs currently sit in the Top 10.
All 25 tracks from Drake’s ultra-popular “Scorpion” album, released on June 29, are on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
His former No. 1 hit, “Nice for What,” returns to the top of the chart, while “Nonstop” debuts at No. 2. Drake’s other songs in the Top 10 are “God’s Plan,” ”In My Feelings,” ”I’m Upset,” ”Emotionless” and “Don’t Matter to Me,” which includes previously recorded vocals from Michael Jackson.
Drake’s new feat breaks the Beatles’ 1964 record, when five of their songs reached the Top 10 in the same week.
