That Time Drake Basically Turned His Album Into a Billboard Chart


Billboard reports that Drake has taken over nearly half of its 50-slot Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Maybe this isn’t a shock, given the artist’s recent surprise 17-track album; however, the news is significant because it means that every song from If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late is charting. Drake has 21 songs up total because he also appears as a feature on some popular hits, but really he’s just addicted to breaking records (with this latest feat, he breaks his own for having the most simultaneously charting tracks, 14). The mixtape itself, by the way, is still at No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.

Without further delay, here, according to Billboard, are all of Drake’s charting songs, whose positions are dated March 7 and that include a handful not on Too Late:

4: “Only,” Nicki Minaj, feat. Drake, Lil Wayne, and Chris Brown
