Honestly, Nevermind was launched just over ten days ago and has already reached historic milestones in the career of Drake.
Thanks to his latest work, the rapper has become one of only five artists to have more than 10 number one albums on the Billboard 200 since counting the world charts in 1956.
The 11 times Drake reached the top saw him enter a tie for third place in history, along with the legendary Bruce Springsteen and Barbara Streisand. The trio only loses to Jay-Zwhich ranks second with 14 “number 1s” on the charts and Beatles, who are in the lead with an impressive 19 times at the top. Couldn’t be anyone else, right?
The rapper’s record mark comes after 250 million plays on Spotify, which is equivalent to 204,000 unit copies of an album. In terms of traditional numbers, only 11,000 copies of Honestly, Nevermind were sold — including paid downloads on digital platforms.
