As expected by everyone, the entirety of Drake's 25-track astrology-nodding double album Scorpion is now hanging out on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Singles with Lil Baby ("Yes Indeed") and 2 Chainz/Quavo ("Bigger > You") give Drizzy 27 tracks in the Hot 100, breaking an all-time record previously belonging to...him.
Seven of the chart's top 10 songs this week are Scorpion cuts. "Nice for What" takes the top spot, returning to No. 1 having spent seven weeks there overall; it stood at No. 6 last week and has been on the chart 13 weeks. It's followed by "Nonstop" at No. 2, "God's Plan" (No. 4), "In My Feelings" (No. 6), "I'm Upset" (No. 7), "Emotionless" (No. 8), and "Don't Matter to Me" feat. Michael Jackson at No. 9.
With this latest round of chart stats, Drake has now surpassed Michael Jackson with a whopping 31 top 10 hits. Jackson's Drake, with that seven-out-of-ten feat, has also broken the Beatles’ long-held record for most simultaneous Hot 100 charters. Furthermore, and honestly there's like a trillion more of these to talk about, Drake is now the only artist to have ever hit the Hot 100 with four simultaneous debuts.
In a world too perfect to envision during such otherwise dire times, arguable Scorpion high point "Summer Games" would be No. 1 for the foreseeable future, or at least until Pusha-T sprinkles some DAYTONA vibes on it with an original-besting freestyle.
Scorpion also stands at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, because duh.
Monday brought word that Drake was seemingly putting together a video for "In My Feelings" down in New Orleans. The track has been receiving a massive push thanks to a viral dance challenge, and appears to be getting the Karena Evans treatment. Evans has directed Drake's three Scorpion videos so far.
In loosely related Scorpion news, Nando's—noted chicken dish provider—gifted Drake with his very own Scorpion sauce for his backstage dining area at this weekend's Wireless Festival. Per the Line of Best Fit, Drake made a special request for Nando's products when hitting the festival to fill in for DJ Khaled.
