Drake's "Summer Sixteen" has debuted at number 6 on the Hot 100.

Drake is pretty much bigger than ever right now, and the fact that his latest record, "Summer Sixteen," which is hardly a bid for pop success like "Hotline Bling", has given him his biggest sales week as a solo artist, is evidence of such. According to Billboard, the single has netted a whopping 215,000 downloads this week. 

Of course, debuting the song on OVO sound, taking some subliminal shots at his enemies, and effectively scrubbing the track from the net while uploading it to iTunes certainly played a role in the record's success. As a result, it debuted -- rather perfectly -- at number SIX on this week's charts (it's also his SIXTEENth entry into the Hot 100).

This puts the song one spot ahead of Drizzy's collaboration with Rihanna, "Work," which moves from 9 to 7 this week. 

So far, Drake has yet to surpass the #2 spot on the Hot 100 as a solo artist (both "Hotline Bling" and "Best I Ever Had" peaked there). We're not sure "Summer Sixteen" will be the song to catapult Drizzy to the top of the charts, but its presence in the top ten is reassuring that the rapper still has a great chance of hitting that career landmark soon.
