Drake Narrowly has become household names ever since the compilation Care Package debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 which granted the hip-hop star his ninth leader on the all-encompassing chart.
Although Drake makes quite a splash on the Hot 100 songs ranking, four singles of his were already charting (all of which feature him in a featured role). In addition to that, the rapper from Canada places half a dozen older songs onto the tanking for the very first time.
With six new Hot 100 hits to his credit, Drake makes history as the first and solo artist act in the U.S. to see minimum 200 songs in the chart and that too second in rank overall. That’s certainly an accomplishment, but the “One Dance” superstar nearly broke an all-time record on the most important songs list in the country. Unfortunately, he only missed doing so by a relatively small margin.
Along with the six songs Drake sent to the Hot 100, the Canadian rapper saw another six tunes from Care Package debut on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100, which serves as a 25-spot extension of the initial chart. The tracks which ranked on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 can be thought basically the Nos. 101 through 125 most popular cuts in the nation every week, as they nearly made it to the main ranking.
If the four of those tracks had performed just a little better by racking up a few more sales or some more streams or maybe they made their way to the Hot 100 instead of the Bubbling Under Hot 100, Drake would have tied the record for the most appearances on the chart of all-time. Currently, that honour is held by the cast of the TV show Glee, which managed to appear 207 times during their time together. Drake is up to 203 which including his six new successes.
