Drake Charts 7 Songs On Billboard Top 10, Surpassing Beatles Record

Wednesday July 11th, 2018

Drake has not only entered Beatles territory — he’s eclipsed it. The rapper currently claims seven of the Top 10 spots on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

That’s insane, and it also smashes the Fab Four’s record of five songs in the Top 10. Of course, the way music is delivered and consumed in 2018 is much different than 1964. And back then, during peak Beatlemania, the band of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr had all five of the Top 5 songs, with”Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Twist and Shout,” “She Loves You,” “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “Please Please Me.”
 
Here is what Drake’s remarkable week looks like on the Billboard Hot 100:
1. “Nice for What”
2. “Nonstop”
4. “God’s Plan”
6. “In My Feelings”
7. “I’m Upset”
8. “Emotionless”
9. “Don’t Matter to Me” (featuring Michael Jackson)
 
The Beatles’ achievement isn’t the only record Drake surpassed with his new album. Now, with 31 career Top 10s, the Canadian emcee has the most of those among solo males, besting Michael Jackson.
 
 
Additionally, Drake now has an incredible 27 songs overall on the July 14 chart, breaking his own record for the most simultaneously charted titles.
 
As readers might expect, Drake’s new album “Scorpion” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. All 25 tracks from that album are on the Hot 100 — plus two more, obviously. Drake has now charted 186 songs there over the course of his stellar music career.
