Every Drake release brings its share of Billboard chart history, and his new collaborative album with 21 Savage, Her Loss, is no different.
In July, Drake became the first solo male to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously twice, thanks to his LP Honestly, Nevermind and its single “Jimmy Cooks,” featuring 21 Savage. A month later, he broke The Beatles’ longstanding record for the most top five career Hot 100 hits, thanks to his feature on DJ Khaled’s “Staying Alive.”
Now, Drake extends more chart records, as all 16 tracks from Her Loss (15 of which credit Drake) debut on the latest Hot 100 (dated Nov. 19), including a whopping eight in the top 10.
It’s worth noting that, as streaming has become more prominent in recent years, select acts have been able to achieve impressive Hot 100 feats after releasing high-profile albums. The model contrasts with prior decades, when acts generally promoted one single at a time in the physical-only marketplace and on radio. That shift in consumption helps explain artists being able to increase their total number of career entries and top 10s to historic highs over short spans in recent years.
As Drake makes more history, here’s a look at all the Hot 100 records the superstar has broken in his career, and those that he hasn’t (yet), all through the chart dated Nov. 19, 2022.
Among key milestones that Drake reaches this week: the most simultaneous top 20 Hot 100 hits (15) and the most top 10s in a single year (13, matching his marks from 2018 and 2021).
