Drake’s ‘Certified Lover Boy’ album has made Billboard Hot 100 history. The rapper has nine songs in the Top 10.
He is also the second artist in history to occupy all five places in the Top 5 – with ‘Way 2 Sexy’ claiming the top spot.
The Beatles are the only other artists to have achieved the feat. That was in 1964!
Drake dropped his highly anticipated album earlier this month. Some of the big names that feature include Jay-Z, Travis Scott, Rick Ross, and Future.
All 21 songs on the album are currently in the Top 40.
