He also scores the first 19 positions of the On-Demand Streaming Songs ranking.
Drake isn’t just setting records on the Billboard Hot 100 or Billboard 200 charts with his new album, Scorpion. The hip-hop star, whose album broke the single-week streaming record both nationally and globally, storms onto Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart on the way to giving Drake the most titles on the chart in its six-year history.
Along with the 25 songs from Scorpion, Drake also makes an appearance on the ranking dated July 14 as part of “Yes Indeed” with Lil Baby and with a featured credit on BlocBoy JB’s “Look Alive” and Migos’ “Walk It Talk It,” giving Drake 28 titles on Streaming Songs at once. That breaks the previous record of most titles simultaneously on the chart, 21, held by Drake on the April 8, 2017-dated tally following the release of 2017’s More Life. He also has the only other week with at least 20 titles on the chart at once, scoring 20 on the May 21, 2016-dated survey after releasing Views.
Drake holds down the top eight spots of Streaming Songs and nine of the top 10. Both are records; previously, Post Malone had charted the most songs at once in the top 10, scoring eight earlier this year (May 12) upon the release of beerbongs & bentleys. But as far as Drake’s dominance in the first eight positions goes, no other artist had even held down the first three spots of Streaming Songs, let alone its first eight.
