No surprises here. Drake's entire More Life project is now hanging out on the Billboard Hot 100. In total, Drake charted 24 songs on the latest Hot 100, smashing his own record for the most simultaneously charted titles in a single week. Previously, Drake held that record thanks to 20 simultaneous hits during the Views peak back in May 2016.
Drake also surpassed Lil Wayne's record (135) for the most charted titles among solo artists, with his More Life haul giving him a should-be-safe-for-a-long-time total of 154. As a lead artist, Drake can currently count 103 of those Hot 100 hits. In the lead artist category, Drake is currently only bested by Elvis Fucking Presley and the cast of Glee. With all of More Life on the charts, the tied single-album record (18) of Views and The Weekend's Starboy is also a thing of the past. For those wondering, the non-More Life tracks Drake has on the Hot 100 are his Nicki and Wayne collab "No Frauds" and Gucci Mane's "Both."
The current critical chatter surrounding Drake's star-stacked playlist is also pretty indisputable, though the album is not without its detractors. Specifically, accusations of Drake culture vulturing his way through another release became a hot discussion topic last week. Black Coffee, featured on "Get It Together," recently spoke with Jinx about how his More Life appearance came to fruition and addressed those vulture accusations head-on:
"It's an investment, I see it like that," Black Coffee said. "He's really investing in the culture and he's growing it to be more of a worldwide thing."
