When it comes to selling Rap music on a global scale, very few do it better than ‘OVO‘ frontman Drake.
That fact, albeit obvious, was proved once more in the UK tonight when his new single ‘Started From The Bottom’ went a long way to prove just how powerful his brand of authentic Hip Hop is in today’s market.
Find out how below…
Less than a week after the release of its video, the Zombie produced cut stormed the Official Charts when it rose by a mind blowing 46 spots- securing the #25 position.
Holding tight at #71 last week, the song’s meteoric rise comes just two weeks after its release, marking the biggest and fastest jump from any act in this week’s chart. Impressive, considering the fact it has been able to achieve this on the basis of momentum generated online- a testament to his wide reaching appeal.
The good news doesn’t end there.
By way of fan support, the cut now holds the #5 spot spot on the UK’s Urban Chart, while excitement surrounding the release of his new LP has seen his Lil Wayne led ‘Love Me’ rise a cool 18 spots to land the #27 spot, after just three weeks.
Meanwhile over at the albums chart, his 2011 smash hit album ‘Take Care‘ has crept back in the Top 20 after 66 weeks of release claiming the #14 position, while his debut album ‘Thank Me Later‘ rises by the same amount to sit pretty at #32…after 136 weeks on the chart.
