"Scorpion" debuted on the chart the same week Billboard changed how it counts streaming plays.
All of this comes on the heels of Drake also notching a streaming record.
That line off his platinum album Scorpion has fueled reports that the rapper is at the end of his deal with Young Money/Cash Money, which is distributed through Universal Music Group's Republic Records. That brings Drake to a career total of 31 top 10 songs, passing Michael Jackson's previous record for male solo artists.
The Billboard 200 album chart tallies units from album sales, song sales (10 songs equal one album) and streaming activity (1,500 streams equal one album). There's some complicated math behind them, but what they basically mean is that if an album's songs are downloaded or streamed on services like Spotify often enough, it can boost the album's chart position just like a traditional physical sale would.
In addition to Drake's record-breaking accomplishments on the top album charts, he also makes a significant showing in the Billboard Hot 100, which tracks the most listened-to singles in music.
The rapper broke his own record of most singles charting in the Hot 100 with 27 - including all 25 tracks from "Scorpion". "Nice for What" has returned to the top spot on the chart, making it the only song to ever hit No. 1 four times in the chart's history.
Since 2009 Drake has launched 186 songs on the Hot 100 chart.
Though Drake's massive Scorpion album is only 11 days old, it appears the 6 God already has another project on deck.
