Canadian rapper, Drake sets new record with “Scorpion” album, displacing The Beatles
By Patricia Uyeh
Canadian rapper, Aubrey Drake Graham, popularly known as Drake has set a record with his “Scorpion” album by posting seven singles on the Billboards Top 10 simultaneously.
This displaces famous English rock band- The Beatles record of five singles set in 1964.
However, Billboard noted the band remains “the only act to monopolize the Hot 100’s entire top five in a week.”
Take a look at Drake’s ranking on Billboard: “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. And that’s not his only success.
Drake records another feat by beating late pop icon, Michael Jackson as the artist with the most Hot 100 Top 10s in his career among solo males.
His record label, Republic Records announced this week that “Scorpion”, Drake’s fifth album, has crossed the 1billio mark in the total streams – a first for an album in its first week.
