Drake has notched his tenth #1 album and the biggest album debut in over a year with the release of Certified Lover Boy (OVO/Republic). The album has amassed an astounding 1 billion plus streams within its first week with global consumption approaching 1 million units.
What’s more, it has bowed at #1 across multiple charts including #1 on the Billboard 200 Chart, #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart, and #1 on the Top Rap Albums Chart, with the #1 Consumption and Overall Streaming Debut for 2021. Certified Lover Boy has smashed the record for “most first-week entries on the Billboard Hot 100” with “Way 2 Sexy” featuring Future and Young Thug debuting at #1 and an unprecedented total of 9 simultaneous entries within the Top 10. This marks the first time in history that an artist has ever debuted with the Top 5 songs on the Billboard Hot 100. It is also the first time an artist has ever debuted with 9 songs in the Top 10 and one of the rare and special occasions when an artist captures #1 on both the Billboard 200 Chart and Billboard Hot 100.
