Drake Becomes First Ever To Claim 9 Of Top 10 On Billboard Hot 100

Drake dominates Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart, as he becomes the first singer or act to claim 9 out of the top 10 spots on the tally in a single week.

Drake also matches The Beatles by claiming all top five positions, which the English rock band had previously done in 1964.

Overall, all 21 songs from his latest album Certified Lover Boy have earned a place on the Hot 100, with “Way 2 Sexy,” featuring Future and Young Thug, leading at No. 1.

Certified Lover Boy, which dropped on September 3, debuted atop the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, earning Drake his 10th No. 1.

The record earned 613,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending September 9, according to MRC Data. This marks the biggest week for an album since Taylor Swift‘s Folklore launched at No. 1 with 846,000 units on the August 8, 2020-dated chart.
