Drake Tops Billboard Artist 100 For 33rd Total Week

Drake has reclaimed the top spot on Billboard‘s Artist 100 chart, thanks to the blockbuster debut of his latest album Certified Lover Boy.

The Canadian rapper jumped from No. 21 to No. 1 on the chart dated September 18 to become the top musical act in the U.S. for a 33rd total week.

Meanwhile, Drake dominates the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 chart. Certified Lover Boy, which dropped on September 3, debuted atop the all-genre 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.

He also became the first singer or act to claim 9 out of the top 10 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 in a single week. Drake also matched 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.
