Drake breaks another Beatles record

He’s only gone and done it again, Drake has smashed a 50 year old US chart record, set by The Beatles way back in 1964, by becoming the first artist with the most top 10’s in a single year.

The record, which was previously held for a considerable amount of time by The Beatles, was 11 songs in a single year. Well, he really has ‘Done Right’ And ‘Killed Everything’ of late, racking up an incredible 12 top 10 hits in 2018. With a couple of months left in the year, I can really see him surpassing that.

His latest hit, is his feature on the track MIA, a record by Puerto Rican artist Bad Bunny, which currently sits at number 5 in the US charts. Drizzy Drake’s run this year has been nothing short of phenomenal. At the top of this list of achievements are, the three number 1 singles from his recent album Scorpion. They are God’s Plan which spent 11 weeks at number 1, Nice For What held top spot for 8 weeks and In my feelings spent 10 weeks at number 1, as well as racking up an incredible 393 million streams, according to Spotify. On top of that, the album has proved to be full of hits with charting songs Non Stop Diplomatic Immunity’, ‘I’m Upset’ andDon’t Matter To Me which has a posthumus feature by Michael Jackson. Rounding out Drakes dozen, are 3 more features, MigosWalk It Talk It, BlocBoy JB’s Look Alive and Lil Baby’s ‘Yes Indeed’.

It doesn’t stop there when we talk about Drake’s year of record breaking. He has taken the record for most weeks at Number 1 in a single year, previously held by Usher, with a massive 29 weeks. He now has a total of 32 top 10 hits to his name. Leaving him behind only Madonna who has 38 Top 10s and The Beatles who have 34.
