Drake Continues Historic Billboard Run by Holding 9 of Top10 Spots


The record-breaking numbers for Certified Lover Boy are in, and the 6 God is running this week’s Hot 100. Drake is the first artist to ever hold nine spots on the Hot 100’s Top 10 simultaneously.

Drake bulldozed his way to nine out of the Top 10 slots with Certified Lover Boy track entries. It’s a collaboration frenzy at the top. Rounding out the first three slots, Drake, Future and Young Thug’s “Way 2 Sexy” holds steady at No. 1 (Drake’s ninth No. 1 hit), while “Girls Want Girls” featuring Lil Baby comes in at No. 2 and “chart-topping” mates Drake and Travis Scott fire away at No. 3 with “Fair Trade.”

All 21 tracks from Certified Lover Boy charted within the Top 40 and the project already has more Top 10 hits than any album in music history. The OVO honcho’s five debuts at No. 1 on the Hot 100 tie him with Ariana Grande for the most all-time. He joins The Beatles to hold all Top 5 slots on the Hot 100 at one time, which the legendary group first accomplished in April of 1964. Certified Lover Boy debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 613,000 total album-equivalent units to give Drake the largest sales week of 2021 thus far.
