Drake Continues His Sheer Dominance By Setting An Astonishing New Billboard Record

The 6 God indeed.

Drake has been on an absolute tear on the charts since he released "Views" on April 29.

In the first week of the albums release, it set a new Apple Music record with 250 million streams, beating out Justin Bieber's "Purpose," which had 205 million streams.

It has also sold more than 1 million copies thus far under Apple exclusivity.

It went out in physical release on Friday and will be out on all digital streaming platforms May 13.

The above numbers will certainly rise from here, but Drake is also setting even more records every day with Views.

It was announced today that Drake currently has 20 singles charting on the Billboard Hot 100, a new record.

In addition to the 20 singles charting, his single "One Dance" has also become his first No. 1 as a lead artist on that chart.

If all of that was still not enough, Views will debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart.


Considering this is only his fourth studio album, it is quite incredible to think he was just a protégé on Lil Wayne's Young Money roster and a featured artist on "Bed Rock" in 2009.

While he says he plans on retiring at the age of 35, we'll see what else Drake accomplishes with Views and the rest of his career.
