Drake's momentum continues, despite the beef.
Another week of chart data is released means yet another accomplishment for Drake. Despite having seemingly taken the "L" in regards to his beef with Pusha T, the numbers don't lie when they say that Drake is still the hottest rapper out.
Just last week Drake's "Nice For What" reclaimed the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart after it was briefly stolen from him by Childish Gambino's "This Is America." He also managed to pass Elvis Presley to become the artist with the 4th highest amount of top ten singles on the chart, trailing behind only Elton John, Stevie Wonder, and Michael Jackson.
Well this week he's broken another chart record, though perhaps not quite as illustrious as the last one, he's secured his place at the number one spot this time. It's been reported that "Yes Indeed," the Lil Baby track which features Drake, will hit the top of the "Streaming Songs" chart this week. This will officially mark Drake's fifth number one song on the Streaming Songs chart, the highest of any artist on Earth.
Of course, Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder were around long before streaming was, but Drake still faces some tough competition. He was previously tied at number 1 with Justin Bieber, with four songs each, followed by Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift at three apiece. With the Scorpion album on the horizon, its possible that Drake will be able to extend his lead even further than it is now.
