Posted by Unknown on 7:30 PM

Drake’s Scary Hours continues to break records. After shattering Spotify and Apple Music ceilings, “God’s Plan” and “Diplomatic Immunity” have helped Drizzy surpass JAY-Z for most Billboard Hot 100 top 10s among rappers.

This week, “God’s Plan” enters the chart at No. 1 and “Diplomatic Immunity” arrives at No. 7. Together, they make up Drizzy’s 21st and 22nd top 10s. He is the first artist to debut two songs in the top 10 simultaneously twice, after first doing so last year, according to Billboard.

JAY-Z previous held the record with 21, while the 6 God’s mentor Lil Wayne has 20. Others on the list include Ludacris (18), Eminem (17), Diddy (15), Nicki Minaj (15), T-Pain (15), and Kanye West (15).

Drake is now tied with Taylor Swift for 13th place among all acts for most Hot 100 top 10s. The leaders are Madonna (38), The Beatles (34), Rihanna (31), and Michael Jackson (29).

Additionally, “God’s Plan” is Drizzy’s fourth Hot 100 No. 1 and second as a lead artist. He first topped the Hot 100 with Rihanna’s “What’s My Name?” in 2010 and then did it again on RiRi’s “Work” in 2016. Also in 2016, he opened at No. 1 with the WizKid and Kyla-assisted “One Dance.”

As predicted, Scary Hours also allows Drake to continue his reign with most Hot 100 entries ever among solo artists with 159. Only the cast of Glee has more with 207.
