Given that the way we consume music these days has changed so much in the past 10 to 15 years, some will argue that it’s like comparing apples to oranges… but Toronto rapper, Drake has just done something music industry watchers have said couldn’t be done… All 25 tracks from his latest album “Scorpion” have made the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and seven of them sitting comfortably in the Top 10.
As his album, which was released just a week ago, hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and his summer song “Nice for What” is currently at No. 1. The six others in the top-10 include the song “Don’t Matter to Me,” featuring Michael Jackson. It’s an impressive feat, breaking a long standing record going back to 1964, when the Beatles had 5 singles in the top-10, in the same week.
In fact, Drake has had 31 Top-10 hits throughout his career so far, tying him with former flame Rihanna, only behind The Beatles, who had 34, and Madonna’s 38 top-10 hits.
