Drake breaks Beatles historic record

Drake breaks 54-year-old Beatles record with seven simultaneous Top 10 songs

Since the release of Drake's latest LP Scorpion, the Canadian artist has dominated the tops spots of the Billboard Music charts.

Billboard's newest July 14-dated chart, in which Scorpion debuts at No. 1, will be posted on Billboard websites on Tuesday, July 10. And every single one of its tracks ended up in the Billboard Hot 100, giving Drake a record-breaking 27 songs on the singles chart at the same time, including his features on BlocBoy JB's "Look Alive" and Lil Baby's "Yes Indeed".

Though Drake's massive Scorpion album is only 11 days old, it appears the 6 God already has another project on deck.

"Scorpion" was heavily promoted by a number of streaming companies, including Spotify, which filled its most popular playlists with selections from the album.

His record label Republic Records announced this week that "Scorpion", Drake's fifth album, has crossed the one billion mark in total streams - a first for an album in its first week.

Drake's former No. 1 hit, "Nice for What", returned to the top position, while "Nonstop" debuts at No. 2.

Since 2009 Drake has launched 186 songs on the Hot 100 chart.

The Billboard 200 album chart tallies units from album sales, song sales (10 songs equal one album) and streaming activity (1,500 streams equal one album). He also ties Kanye West, Eminem, and The Beatles for the longest streak of No.1 albums. It racked up 745.92 million USA online plays in its first week, the highest streaming debut for any artist ever. The modified rules give a stronger value to listeners who listen on a paid subscription platform over the ones who use a free streaming music service.
