Drake Breaks Billboard Record Held By The Beatles for 54 Years

Drake

Folks who doubted Drake during his feud with Pusha T may be swallowing their words today, as the Toronto superstar has officially broken The Beatles’ 54-year-old record, posting seven simultaneous singles on Billboards Top 10. The Beatles set the record in 1964 with five singles landing in the Top 10. The British band is still “the only act to monopolize the Hot 100’s entire top five in a week,” according to Billboard.

Drake’s rankings are as follows: “Nice for What” at No. 1; “Nonstop” at No. 2; “God’s Plan” at No. 4; “In My Feelings” at No. 6; “I’m Upset” at No. 7; “Emotionless” at No. 8; and “Don’t Matter to Me,” featuring Michael Jackson, at No. 9.

All 7’s…

The “’HYFR” rapper also broke one of his own records, remaining the artist with the most singles charting in the Hot 100 with 27, 25 of which are from new album, Scorpion. The new record is also the first to cross the one billion streams mark in the first week of release.

The young father also surpassed the late Michael Jackson as the artist with the most Hot 100 Top 10s in his career among solo males. Drake now has 31 to Jackson’s 30, his last being his appearance on Drake’s “Don’t Matter to Me.”
