Drake Had 20 Songs on the Billboard Hot 100 at ONCE and That Blows Our Mind

Getting a song onto the Billboard Hot 100 is a big deal, so Drake should be having 20 times the “big deal” celebration. At least, he should have been partying it up back in May when he managed to land 20 songs on the Hot 100 at once.

We’d be partying too if we got that many songs on the Hot 100 at once.

With the launch of his new album Views on April 29, 2016, it was nearly impossible to turn on the radio and not hear at least one of the albums 20 songs playing. Still, it comes as a total shock that nearly every single song made it onto the Billboard Hot 100 (2 of the tracks were from different albums).

Justin Bieber previously held the record with 17 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 at once, but even that wasn’t a clean sweep. His album Purpose was responsible for many of those hits, with 17 of the 18 total songs on the delux version of the album.

If we have to find something to criticize about Drake’s impressive record, it’s that many of the songs didn’t crack the top 50 on the charts. 11 songs were ranked 49 or better, while nine of them were lower than the 50th spot on the Hot 100. Okay, so Drake probably isn’t too sad about this–we had to find some sort of negative, right? That way he has new goals to shoot for in the future.

 

Here’s where each song landed on the May 21, 2016, charts:

#1. “One Dance,” feat. WizKid & Kyla
#6. “Work,” Rihanna feat. Drake
#21. “Pop Style,” feat. The Throne
#33. “Hype”
#34. “Controlla”
#38. “Grammys,” feat. Future
#40. “Still Here”
#44. “U With Me?”
#45. “9”
#47. “With You,” feat. PARTYNEXTDOOR
#49. “Childs Play”
#52. “Too Good,” feat. Rihanna
#53. “Feel No Ways”
#54. “Weston Road Flows”
#61. “Redemption”
#68. “Keep the Family Close”
#72. “Faithful,” feat. Pimp C & dvsn
#75. “Fire & Desire”
#86. “Views”
#89. “Summer Sixteen”

Here’s the challenge if you’re reading this, Drake. Next time you release an album, we want to see every single track get on the Hot 100. Not only that, but they’ve all got to be in the 50. Got it? Okay, good. Now go get to work on your new music.
