Drake Breaks The Beatles Record with Seven Simultaneous Top 10 Songs

All 25 of Drake's 'Scorpion' Songs Hit the Billboard Hot 100

All of this comes on the heels of Drake also notching a streaming record.

Drake's Scorpion now holds the number one spot on the NZ Official Top 40 Albums chart, while XXXTentacion's Question Mark sits in third, separated only by Florence + The Machine's new album High As Hope, which is in the number two position. That beat a record of five simultaneous songs by The Beatles in 1964 when the British band was at the height of its fame.

The rapper broke his own record of most singles charting in the Hot 100 with 27 - including all 25 tracks from "Scorpion".

His record label Republic Records announced this week that "Scorpion", Drake's fifth album, has crossed the one billion mark in total streams - a first for an album in its first week. "Nice for What" takes the top spot, returning to No. 1 having spent seven weeks there total; it stood at No. 6 last week and has been on the chart 13 weeks total.

Real Madrid confident of signing integral Chelsea player in €40M deal
The towering stopper emerged heroic as the Red Devils shocked Brazil by eliminating them from the tournament last week. And Courtois reckons Didier Deschamps' men will present a tougher challenge than the Brazilians.

Drake also adds five new Hot 100 top 10s to his tally, taking his career count to 31 and passing Michael Jackson for the most among male soloists. "Nonstop" grabbed the top spot.

"Scorpion" sold 732,171 equivalent albums - based off album sales and streams - to debut at No. 1 on Billboard's 200 albums chart.

Drake now ties Kanye West, Eminem and the Beatles for eight consecutive No. 1 albums. The modified rules give a stronger value to listeners who listen on a paid subscription platform over the ones who use a free streaming music service.
