TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
- With over 200 charted singles in just over 10 years since his first single, "Best I Ever Had," Drake is truly one of the most prolific and successful recording artists in music history.
- It helps that most of his catalog has been released in the era of streaming and downloads.
- How many of Drizzy's six number-one songs can you name? Here's a hint: two were features on Rihanna songs, the rest are his.Answer: Rihanna's "What's My Name?" and "Work" and his own "One Dance" (featuring WizKid and Kyla), "God's Plan," "Nice for What," and "In My Feelings."
Drake's Care Package will debut at number-one on this week's Billboard200 album chart tomorrow (Tuesday). And he set a Billboard chart record this week by becoming the first solo artist ever to put 200 (!) singles on theHot 100.
Care Package becomes the ninth chart-topper for Drizzy, who joins some legendary company.Eminem,Madonna, The Rolling Stones and Garth Brooks also have nine. They're behind Elvis Presley(10), Bruce Springsteen and Barbra Streisand (11),Jay-Z(14) and The Beatles (19). Drake is by far the biggest number-one success this decade -- all nine of those albums have come out since 2010.
Care Package debuts with 109,000 equivalent album units, 16,000 of them in digital album sales. There is no physical album available.
With six songs offCare Package entering the chart this week,Drake now has 203 charting songs in a recording career of just over a decade. He is just four charting songs behind the cast ofGlee, the only other entity to rack up over 200 hits on theHot 100.
