Drake has become the first artist ever to have three songs debut in the Top 3 positions on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
Taken from his recent ‘Scary Hours 2’ EP, the Canadian rapper’s new single ‘What’s Next’ has gone straight in at Number One on Billboard. Not only that, the project’s two other tracks, ‘Wants And Needs’ featuring Lil Baby and ‘Lemon Pepper Freestyle’ with Rick Ross, have entered at Number Two and Number Three respectively, making him the first artist in history to achieve this milestone.

With “What’s Next,” Drake adds his eighth Hot 100 No. 1, while the three songs up his total to a record-extending 45 Top 10s. In addition to this, he’s also joined The Beatles and Ariana Grande as the only acts in history to take up the top three positions of the Hot 100 simultaneously in the same week.
On the heels of dominating the Hot 100’s Top 3, Drake also achieved another milestone on Billboard. The Toronto legend is the only artist to appear on their Artist 100 chart every week since its 2014 launch (350 weeks).
