…claims 7 Hot 100’s Top 10

Drake dominates the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated July 14) in record-breaking fashion, as his new LP Scorpion launches at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with the biggest week of consumption for an album in 2018. Atop the Hot 100, the set’s “Nice for What” rebounds from No. 6 to No. 1 for an eighth total week at the summit.

Among Drake’s record feats on the Hot 100, he boasts seven songs in the top 10 simultaneously, besting the Beatles’ record of five that had stood since 1964. (The Beatles remain the only act to monopolize the Hot 100’s entire top five in a week.) Drake adds five new Hot 100 top 10s, upping his career count to 31, passing Michael Jackson for the most among male soloists; one of those new top 10s, “Don’t Matter to Me,” features Jackson, who earns his 30th top 10.

Beyond the top 10, Drake charts 27 songs overall on the July 14-dated Hot 100, breaking his own record for the most simultaneously charted titles. All 25 tracks from Scorpion, released on Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records, appear on the chart.
