Drake’s new album Care Package has debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, and alongside that debut, he’s set a new Billboard Hot 100 record.

The prolific Canadian rapper continues to dominate the US charts, and now he’s the only solo act in history to get 200 individual tracks to land on the Billboard Hot 100.

Six tracks from Care Package made their chart debut this week, taking Drake’s grand total to 203 entries.

‘Trust Issues’ landed at #58, with ‘How About Now’ (#60), ‘The Motion’ (#61), ‘Dreams Money Can Buy’ (#68), ‘Club Paradise’ (#85) and ‘Days in the East’ (#95) all impacting this week.

In the 61-year history of the Billboard Hot 100, only The Cast Of Glee have more entries than Drake (207).

Drake’s chart history is imposing. He made the record books in 2018 by having seven songs in the Top 10, breaking a record set by The Beatles in 1964.

It’s certainly been a year for broken records, with ‘Old Town Road’ by Lil Nas X recently becoming the most successful single in US charts history.

The country-rap phenomenon is still running hot, pushing his record to 19 consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Lil Nas also just topped the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Chart for the 19th week, breaking Drake’s record for most weeks spent at #1 which he set with ‘One Dance’.
