Drake Becomes the First Act to Debut Two Songs in Hot 100 Top 10 Simultaneously—Twice
After dropping f the Billboard Hot 100 this past August, following an incredible 430-week run, Drake has once again returned home.
On Tuesday, when Billboard publishes their latest chart, the Toronto hitmaker will debut at No. 1 with “God's Plan,” one half a two-pack brand new records released on January 19. In addition, Drake will also slide into the top 10 with “Diplomatic Immunity,” which is set to debut at No. 7.
This is the second time Drake has debuted two songs in the top 10 simultaneously (on April 8, 2017, Drake debuted at No. 8 with “Passionfruit” and No. 9 with “Portland,” featuring Quavo and Travis Scott). The only other artist to ever accomplish this rare feat is Ed Sheeran, who, on January 28, 2017, saw his “Shape You” single debut at No. 1 and “Castle on the Hill” launch at No. 6.
“God's Plan” is now Drake's fourth Hot 100 No. 1 and his second as a lead artist (“One Dance”).
