WINNING: Drake just broke a major music record previously held by The Beatles
Drake won’t stop winning.
The rapper just hit a major musical milestone, shattering a 50-year-old record for the most Top 10 hits in one year.
Drizzy has scored 12 Top 10 hits in 2018 and the year isn’t even over yet. His latest album, Scorpion, featured three No.1 songs including “God’s Plan”, “In My Feelings”, and “Nice For What.”
Add those to his other chart-topping singles like “Don’t Matter To Me”, “I’m Upset”, “Emotionless” and “Nonstop” among others and you’ve got a new record-holder.
Drake has surpassed The Beatles for the most No. 1 hits in a year, nearly 50 years after they nabbed the honor in 1964 with 11 Top 10 hits.
The Canadian rapper who recently revealed he has a son continues to win despite the fact that folks are constantly coming for him.
In the second episode of his hit show The Shop, the L.A. Lakers’ newest addition, LeBron James and Drake had a heartfelt conversation about retiring at the top of their respective games and recognizing when it’s time to throw in the towel.
In a video James posted to his Instagram account, Drake said: “I think maybe one of my biggest concerns in my career is just to figure out how to exit gracefully. I’ve watched people overstay their welcome, and I just don’t ever want to be that guy that’s addicted to the feeling of victory, addicted to the emotion of people digesting something that they love. And get to a point where I’m feeding them something and they’re just like, ‘Yeah ….”
To which James responded: “What helps with the gracefully bowing out is having people around you that were there from the Day 1. That seen you from the beginning … You can’t have (expletive) around you that don’t keep it honest with you, and don’t keep it real with you. You gotta have someone to tell you like, ‘Yo, either accept a lesser role or you gotta tank.’”
