Drake Extends Run of Chart Records Thanks to 'Scorpion'

He now ties with The Game as rappers who have the most No. 1 album on Top Rap Albums chart.

AceShowbiz - Drake has extended his run of chart records in America by landing the Top Rap Albums Chart number one for an eighth time.

He now ties The Game for most chart-toppers, thanks to the success of his new release Scorpion, which has also debuted atop the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums countdowns.

The album has also smashed the record for the biggest single-week streaming total, with almost 746 million on-demand audio streams for its songs in the week ending 5 July, while the rap star has also beaten Post Malone's record of six simultaneous top 10 hits on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart - the Canadian landed seven this week.

That feat also extends his record of Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart career top 10s to 68 - 11 more than second-placed James Brown.

Drake's record-setting week also extends to the Hot Rap Songs chart, where he also lands seven simultaneous tracks in the top 10.
