Once again, The Boy is the owner of another record.
Following the release of his Scary Hours
maxi-single EP, its two songs “God’s Plan” and “Diplomatic Immunity” debuted within the top ten of Billboard’s Hot 100 list: “God’s Plan” at No. 1, and “Diplomatic Immunity” at No. 7. Together, they mark his 21st and 22nd Top 10 singles, surpassing JAY-Z‘s 21 Top 10s and Lil Wayne‘s 20, giving Drake the record for the most Billboard Hot 100 Top 10s among rappers.
This comes after “God’s Plan” shattered Spotify’s single-day streaming record in the States, notching over four million streams within the first 24 hours of its release. With Scary Hours, Drake also adds to his growing list of the most Hot 100 entries with 159. His only competition? The cast of FOX’ television show Glee, with 207.
On a quasi-related note, Drake shared a picture of his very first press kit, listing his “accolades in an attempt to get signed,” which included such “highlights” as “30 registered fan clubs, over 800 topics on message boards, and performing at Chris Bosh’s private birthday party.” See, even Aubrey was at one point a struggle rapper and had to start somewhere.
