From guest starring roles on Sam Smith‘s ‘Dancing with a Stranger’ and more to dancing by her lonesome on ‘Waves,’ former Fifth Harmony star Normani has been making quite the splash since her departure from the group.

As she dances closer to release of her long-awaited debut solo LP, however, she’s looking to turn that splash into a tsunami.  What better way than with the summery jam, ‘Motivation’?

Produced by Max Martin and co-written by Ariana Grande alongside Savan Kotetcha and Ilya, the song – announced just last week – comes as the latest serving from the highly anticipated set.

Drake has proven himself an unstoppable force on both the Hot 100 and Billboard 200.

At just 32-years-old, the Grammy winner has broken several of the chart’s longstanding records thanks to the high powered streaming of his leading efforts as well as boosting the sales of songs he has been featured on.  Now – as he celebrates the arrival of his latest chart-topping album, ‘Care Package’ (click here to read more) – Drizzy’s been greeted with news that he’s extended his reign as the solo artist with the most appearances on the Hot 100.

With the debut of six tracks from ‘Package’ on this week’s main singles chart, the 6 God has placed a whopping 203 entries on the tally (in just 10 years).  Billboard reports:

“[Drake] makes history by becoming the first soloist, and just the second act overall, with at least 200 visits to the Billboard Hot 100 songs survey. In the 61-year history of the Hot 100, which blends streaming, airplay and sales data, only the Glee Cast has accumulated more entries: 207.”

As we previously reported (click here to read), the self-proclaimed Rap Queen was none-too-pleased about a perceived diss from the Bawse’s 2017 song, ‘Apple of My Eye,’ where he asserted her ex – rapper Meek Mill – should never have trusted her given her relationship with his then-nemesis, Drake.  When asked her thoughts on this, Minaj said Ross should ‘sit his fat ass down.’
