Drake has broke two Billboard “Hot 100” records with his latest project, More Life, which was released last month on March 18th.
The first record is for becoming the music artist with the most hits on “Hot 100” by a solo artist with a total of 154 entries. Drizzy actually surpassed his boss Lil Wayne, who has 135 hits on the Billboard chart.
Drizzy Drake has also broken the record for having the most appearances on “Hot 100” in a single week with 24 entries. Out of the 24 appearances on the Billboard chart, there were 22 from More Life plus Nicki Minaj’s “No Frauds” and Gucci Mane’s “Both“!
According to Billboard, Drake‘s latest project, More Life, has officially generated over one billion streams in the United States of America since first being released less than a month ago on March 18th.
This is not the first album from the 6 God that has passed one billion streams as both his VIEWS and If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late projects have surpassed a billion streams too.
Congratulations to Drizzy Drake on another great accomplishment!
