Drake has been having an awesome week, to say the least, as his newest album has been breaking major records since its release last June 29.
Not only did it hit platinum within hours of its release, it has now officially debuted at the #1 spot on the Billboard charts, making this Drizzy's 8th consecutive album at #1. To add onto that impressive feat, all 25 songs off the double-album are on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts, with 7 of those hitting the top 10 spots—surpassing The Beatles’ record for most simultaneous singles on the Top 10!
Drake is also the first artist EVER to hit 100 billion streams in just one week! Earning him bragging rights for taking four out of the top 10 best-ever streaming weeks, which he previously earned his albums “Views” and “More to Life."
With songs featuring big names like Michael Jackson, Jay Z, and a sample of Mariah Carey’s signature vocals, “Scorpion” takes us back to Drake’s hip hop/RnB roots. His single “In My Feelings” has even sparked a viral dance challenge, pushing dance groups and celebrities alike to show their dance moves online with the hashtag #InMyFeelingsChallenge.
