Drake Breaks The Beatles Record with Seven Simultaneous Top 10 Songs

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

Drake's record company, Republic Records, said the 31-year-old musician, who was the biggest seller in 2016, was the first artist to reach one billion plus streams globally across all platforms in one week of release.

The Toronto performer's new release "Scorpion" has become his eighth No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the United States.

Drake officially owns the Billboard charts, where seven of his songs now sit in the Top 10.

That toppled The Beatles record of five singles set in 1964. Billboard notes the band remains "the only act to monopolize the Hot 100's entire top five in a week".

Drake's influence comes off the back of his newly released album Scorpion, which made headlines for its marketing, which saw Spotify push the album to all of its users, featuring his new music across 30 of it's most followed playlists.

Over on the Billboard charts Drake also surpassed the late Michael Jackson as the artist with the most Hot 100 Top 10s in his career among solo males. He also ties Kanye West, Eminem, and The Beatles for the longest streak of No.1 albums.

On the albums charts, "Scorpion" sold 732,171 equivalent albums in the United States - a tabulation that accounts for both digital sales and streaming plays.

"Scorpion" debuted on the chart the same week Billboard changed how it counts streaming plays.
