Drake Debuts 21 Songs On The Hot 100 At Once, All Inside The Top 40

As his new album Certified Lover Boy opens at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, Drake doesn’t just perform well on the Hot 100, he dominates it like nobody before him ever has. All 21 songs featured on the rapper’s latest full-length debut on the all-genre ranking of the most-consumed songs in the U.S., with all of them finding space inside the top 40, certifying them as immediate hits.

Drake scores his ninth No. 1 and fifth chart-topping debut with “Way 2 Sexy,” which has just been highlighted as the first single from the album. The tune blasts into first place with ease, bringing Young Thug back to the summit and earning featured musician Future his first-ever ruler. The Canadian rapper claims the entirety of the top five for himself, and he occupies nine of the spaces inside the top 10, a first in Billboard history.

The Canadian superstar almost chartered 10 top 10 hits, but his complete sweep was stalled by The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber, who see their hit single “Stay” dip to sixth place.

In addition to his nine top 10 hits, Drake claims another six spaces inside the top 20, giving him 15 simultaneous placements in that area.
