Drake Now Has More Hot 100 Hits Than Any Other Solo Artist EVER!

All 22 Tracks on Rapper’s ‘More Life’ Album In Hot 100 Concurrently

If you thought 2016 was a good year for Drake, your jaw will drop when you see how great his 2017 is going (post-Grammy snubs).

The rapper unleashed his latest project, ‘More Life,’ last week and has been steamrolling the competition since.  In addition to nabbing the year’s best first week sales with the “playlist album,” snatching the honor from Ed Sheeran‘s blockbuster album, ‘Divide,’ Drizzy dethroned himself by topping ‘Views’ for “best 24 hour and 1 week streaming…ever.”

Now, after all of that, he’s left his Young Money mentor, Lil Wayne, in the rearview with a jaw-dropping record.  Find out what inside:

Final Numbers Are In: Drake’s ‘More Life’ Sold…

Rapper Sets Crazy Streaming Record!

Nabbing 2016’s best-selling release in the form of his blockbuster LP, ‘Views,’ was quite the double edged sword for rapper Drake.  On one hand, the Grammy-nominated set laid claim to the impressive title by beating out some of music’s biggest names (Beyonce, Rihanna, Kanye West, etc), but on the other hand the pressure was on its successor to match or surpass its impressive stats.

Now, after a full tracking week of his latest effort – ‘More Life’ – it appears the challenge was met head on.

As we reported here, the playlist was predicted to be greeted with sales equivalence of no less than 500k – a feat achieved by unprecedented streams.  In fact, reports have it the 6 God’s latest effort has been streamed over 380 million times worldwide (yes, that’s 50 million more than the record-setting ‘Views’).  With streaming and impressive sales together, ‘More’ has not only secured the rapper the best first week sales of the year, but his “playlist album” is the second best-selling project released this year overall.

Predictions Are In: Drake’s ‘More Life’ To Surpass Ed Sheeran For Best 1st Week Sales of 2017

With its hit ‘Shape of You’ at the wheel, Ed Sheeran‘s hotly-selling new album, ‘Divide,’ sold more in its first week of availability than any other album released in 2017 had sold in any week this year.  Well, that was until the unveiling of Drake‘s new album ‘More Life.’

The serial hitmaker, who dominated 2016 with the release of his fourth album, ‘Views,’ is en route to do it again as industry analysts not only project he’ll top the Billboard 200 next week, but he’ll do so with a handsome figure.
