All twenty-five tracks from Drake’s chart-topping album “Scorpion” appear on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

One appears at the very top of the chart.

“Nice For What,” that song, returns to #1 for an eighth, non-consecutive week. It reclaims the throne from Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin’s “I Like It.” That collaboration falls to #3 after one week on top.

So what song claims the #2 position? Why, another Drake song, of course! Powered by the week’s largest streaming total, the new “Nonstop” debuts at #2.

Drake also has five other songs in the Top 10: “God’s Plan” at #4, “In My Feelings” at #6, “I’m Upset” at #7, “Emotionless” at #8, and “Don’t Matter To Me” at #9. With seven simultaneous Top 10 songs, he breaks The Beatles’ record of five.

He also breaks the record for most simultaneous Hot 100 songs (he has 27 on the chart) and songs from one album (again, all 25 from “Scorpion”).

Beyond “I Like It,” the only non-Drake songs in this week’s Top 10 are Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You (featuring Cardi B)” (#5) and XXXTentacion’s “SAD!” (#10).
