With the released of his two-song EP Scary Hours Drake made history tallying his 21st and 22nd top 10s on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. As a result, the rapper past JAY-Z for the most Hot 100 top 10s among any rappers. “God’s Plan” blasted onto the Hot 100 at No.1 when the song was released on January 19. “Diplomatic Immunity” also entered the charts at No. 7.
“God’s Plan” is the clear fan favorite and according to chart data, the single has gone 3X platinum in the US in just one month. The release of the philanthropic music video is what helped to push the song to just a feat. The 6 God secretly built up the hype for the visual with footage and stories of the charitable deeds he was performing throughout Miami.

Drake now has 159 career Hot 100s under his belt, the most among any solo act. With such a strong start to 2018, he’s likely to continue adding to this number and breaking records with his music.
