Drake breaks 'The Beatles' record as he claims seven out of 10 slots in Billboard chart
Drake has become one of the singers who broke the record of 'The Beatles' as he claimed seven out of the then slots in the Billboard charts.
Drake has become one among the few singers who broke the record of 'The Beatles' as he claimed seven out of the ten slots in the Billboard charts. Apart from Drake three other artists, Bruce Springsteen and Michael and Janet Jackson were able to claim seven out of 10 spots on the chart. However, none of them did this in the same week, unlike Drake.
The rapper currently holds numbers 1 (Nice for What), 2 (Nonstop), 4 (God’s Plan), 6 (In My Feelings), 7 (I’m Upset), 8 (Emotionless) and 9 (Don’t Matter to Me - featuring Michael Jackson)," as reported by Daily Mail. All the seven songs are from his latest album, 'Scorpion'.
In fact, Drake appears to have taken over whole Billboard chart. The rapper has the most top 10 debuts ever, the most top 40 singles ever, and the second-most Hot 100 entries. In his latest album, Drake also reveals that he is indeed a father and had been hiding this from the world for a long time. The singer released his album 'Scorpion' on June 29 and talks about his alleged son in three songs, “Emotionless,” “8 Out of 10,” and “March 14," as reported by Complex.
On “Emotionless,” Drake tries to clarify why he did not break the news about having a kid to the rest of the world. "I wasn't hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid," he says. On “8 Out of 10,” he raps again about his son as he says, “Kiss my son on the forehead, then kiss your a** goodbye."
Meanwhile, on "March 14" the rapper talked about how he wanted to ensure that his son has a stable environment after he heard the news. At the same time, he confesses that the news came as a surprise as it wasn't with the woman he loved but despite this, he knew the kid was his and that he would always love him.
"I had to come to terms with the fact that it's not a maybe. That s**t is in stone, sealed and signed. She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine," he raps. At the same time, Drake says that he wanted to start a family and not have a situation like the one he did when he was a child. However, things did not work the way he had intended them to. "Single father, I hate when I hear it. I used to challenge my parents on every album. Now I'm embarrassed to tell them I ended up as a co-parent. Always promised the family unit. I wanted it to be different because I've been through it but this is the harsh truth now," he raps.
Drake also revealed that it is not often that he meets his son but does stay updated about him through his mother. "I got an empty crib for my empty crib. I only met you one time, introduced you to St Nick. I think he must’ve brought you like 20 gifts. Your mother says you’re growing so fast that they don’t really fit, but man, you know. I still have to get it for my boy tho, you know," he raps further in the song. The rapper also notes that he is going to meet his child in the coming days but this time, he wants to make sure that he makes a good impression.
