Drake Breaks Historic Billboard Record Set by the Beatles

2017 Billboard Music Awards

2017 Billboard Music Awards

Drake officially owns the Billboard charts, where seven of his songs now sit in the Top 10.

Drake is taking in views from atop the Billboard charts once again with some major help from streaming music listeners.

It looks like Drake's Scorpion has officially stung, with all 25 tracks from his latest album making the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and seven sitting comfortably in the Top 10.

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.

His record label Republic Records announced this week that "Scorpion", Drake's fifth album, has crossed the one billion mark in total streams - a first for an album in its first week.

Drake, with that seven-out-of-ten feat, has also broken the Beatles' long-held record for most simultaneous Hot 100 charters.

Drake now ties Kanye West, Eminem and the Beatles for eight consecutive No. 1 albums.

The Billboard 200 album chart tallies units from album sales, song sales (10 songs equal one album) and streaming activity (1,500 streams equal one album).

Under the new calculations, 1,250 plays on paid subscription platform count for one album sale, while it takes three times that amount on a platform like Spotify's unpaid service with commercial breaks.
