Drake has earned his eighth consecutive number 1 album in America with the biggest album debut of 2018. Drake's new album Scorpion smashed streaming records upon its release on June 29.

Scorpion helped Drake earn 732,000 equivalent streaming sales in its launch week, with 160,000 in traditional album sales, according to WENN.com.

The Canadian rapper now ties Kanye West and Eminem for second place on the list of hip-hop acts with the most Billboard 200 number ones. JAY-Z still holds the rap crown with 14 chart-toppers, while The Beatles reign supreme among all recording artists with 19 number ones.

Standout cuts on Drake's 25-track album include "Nice For What", “March 14th”, and "Sandra's Rose" -- an ode to his mother, Sandi Graham, and his favorite blogger, Sandra Rose.

  • Miss Thang

    Go Wheelchair Jimmy!!!

  • AmericanDream

    How does streaming sales work ? Is it like people buy the album online and have it downloaded on their phones ? Or what ?

    I’m not a magician but I feel like at some point a lot of these rappers will be dying of drug overdose and general’brokeness’ once they realize having your music played on the radio all the time and making money are two different things . Very few are selling actual records and making money touring and yet ......But what do I know?

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Exactly cause the DO NOT REPRESENT ANYTHING RIGHTEOUS NOR GOD LIKE!

  • FlyMiss

  • Thingamajig

    But there's an apostrophe in Sandra's Rose though. If there was no apostrophe than fine, but the apostrophe throws everything off. Sorry Sandra.

  • Listen2Me

    Was it kinda depressing to you? Not all of it; but on some of the songs..he seems sad.

  • Listen2Me

    Did you see the video of Cierra dancing to it?

  • free

    i been bumping 31 days but skipped the rest. who was he ranting about though? i don't follow his music much.

  • Listen2Me

    Fake friends, taking care of his baby mamas (his words) , his mom wanted him to leave drugs alone; messing with a needy cougar...he goes on and on!
    Maybe it will grow on me. ?????

  • Listen2Me

    At this point; we’re just going to let Sandra have it. Hell I think about her (and this claim) every time it comes on anyway.

  • EMILY POST

    It should be #1 a thousand times as much as the music industry and his record company has his songs on heavy rotation.... drake playing every other minute but now that Keke song got the black girls on the wave lol..

  • Hmmm~?

    And Pusha T is where? ?

  • Prince Zuko

    It's funny how stupid America is just becuz they print it doesn't mean it's true Hip hop is so dead at this point it's not even funny

  • rayne215

    hes wack

  • Melinated Goddess??

    Working as the head of good music. While self haters and vultering poser clowns continue to support corny black face Aubrey.

  • Melinated Goddess??

    Drakes garbage. The people that worship him are just as annoying and corny as his faux persona. Damn shame he was allowed to act like a rapper and bamboozle the public for this long. Dude out here pulling a long con and people have been falling for it for nearly a decade.

  • ALLMINE?

    Somewhere being a great lyricist

  • Libra80sBaby

    Only one I liked.

  • Kayke

    At this point ALL rappers are actors.

  • Kayke

    Hip hop isn’t dead it has grown and it needs sub genres like other music. Rock and roll has Heavy metal, alternative rock, classic rock and so on.... we are the ones holding it back and inside borders that it’s gotten too big for. It’s tiring how our arts have to remain so one dimensional.

  • Kayke

    Streams have nothing to do with actual purchases. It’s folks who have subscription music services like tidal and Apple Music who play the albums. They have a formula where the number of plays equate to a unit sold. The artist still gets a dollar amount from the units as they would CDs. It’s faulty as heck as plays can be forged, like Kanye did and the Carters have been accused of. I don’t doubt drakes’ streams because his music charts and sells tangible copies as well. I dislike that artist like Eminem and Jay’s records can be broken by streams when those records were made selling real copies (CDs) not just listens. But there’s no turning back now..... tangible music is almost antiquated.

  • Renee26

    Swear Gods Plan is on every station... Nice for What is my ish and Ke Ke too they don't play her enough though... Ella Mae is another one getting played to death.

  • Renee26

    ???

  • Renee26

    That's my jam...shaking my booty to it in my head right now

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Can anyone identify the designer who created Drake's pants? I've been looking for something like that.

  • EMILY POST

    Drake is on heavy heavy rotation . I listened to Ella Mae awhile ago but now that I hear her more and more she is better than listening to Ariana grande and all the slew of not so black but very black acting but not sounding pop singers.

  • Joy King

    I'm a fan of Drake's music but after Pusha T's diss song, I was so impressed, I was curious to listen to some of his music. The man is extremely talented. Excellent lyricist.

  • Joy King

    No, Drake knew what he was doing. He could've easily named the song Sandi's Rose. Clearly, he's very aware of this blog and the traffic it receives.

  • Renee26

    I'm tired of hearing Boo'd up, I ljke her other song Breakfast in Bed

  • Ozad

    somewhere not worrying about a baby born out of raw dogging a pornstar

  • Ozad

    you got a point there

  • Ozad

    ALL SPIN.... 732,000 was a disappointment considering his last two albums sold 850-925,000 total sales and streams...Pusha T really hurt his pockets with that diss track

  • Rhondalousey

    Right where he needs to be. Drake is not a rapper.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Yikes aint nobody doing a straight milli a week of actual cds uh... scorpio was an ok records.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Nowhere near drake and thats why he was dumb af for letting ye get in his ear to strat this beef. Im dissapointed af in pusha youre a lyricist with a sick flow and you resort to catfighthing with some dude who hasnt done anything to you thats bish sheet and just like i thought it didnt help add to his 7.5 fans myself included. Just lame af

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I was just talking to a friend who said his Uber driver mentioned the song and he asked about me. Drake loves spending time in the Rose Garden. ??

  • Prince Zuko

    That's a great point I think this version of hip hop should have a title so that way anyone that is more interested in the artistic version can be able to find it I would consider this version of hip hop as a party theme for every party which makes it sound more or less like a jingle from a commercial

  • imright

    yes !!! he seems like hes depressed & hes all the wat back on the drugs

  • imright

    stone island

  • Kayke

    Lol @ “the artistic version”. Yes, it would definitely help filter exactly what you want to hear and help the genre in it’s obvious evolution .... you sound like a “Classic Hip Hop” kind of person.

  • queentomyking

    I swear... if Drake EVER shaves that beard....it's over for him!! #facialhairisanecessityforsome

  • Roxie Moxie

    Great! All of those sacrifices paid off apparently.

  • MythCalledLove

    Let's prove this theory. Find someone that can rap or sing. Find them for example on Sound Cloud We can do 2 guy & girl. No doubt they are the real deal.Gorilla market them. Hit social media hard. Object is to see how quickly we can make a star. Drake with his monotone voice & right song, good looking and he is a star .Rick Ross former jail guard & stole the I.D.of the real Rick Ross and raps dumb sh!t like. "I took the roof off at the red light. DJ Khalid yells "We the best" Lets not forget his border line creepy attachment with his son. One skirt wearing rapper. Just need a hot beat and the rapper can say Vanilla Chocolate Strawberry. Wait I forgot about Mary yada yada yada.

  • Applebootay

    THose are not the stand out cuts....cut it out!

  • Applebootay

    Can't go 50/50 with No Heaux!

  • Applebootay

    Why is it when you like a certain artist or music genre that someone else doesn't like (on this damn blog)....the first thing out of their dumb mouth is that "You're worshiping the person or a Bey Fan or all that other nonsense"? FOR WHY THO!!!???? Just respect everyone's preference....besides musical preference is psychological...

    http://theweek.com/articles/639280/science-why-like--dislike--certain-music

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Maybe not to you...

  • Prince Zuko

    Not really I like Anything that's creative

  • Kayke

    What is “creative” to you is your perception which would fall into a category based on your likes. Everything is created so you can’t in fact like “anything” creative.... unless you believe you are the end all be all of what is considered creative..... which would then makeyou quite a narcissist. You can dislike art without demeaning it.

  • Wayup!

    ?????

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Thanks! I think my local Barneys carries this brand.

  • Prince Zuko

    Man please being creative is being alone in ur creation these niggaz is sucking each other off and sounding like the last nigga drake is a actor who is being paid to pretend to be a rapper to make it less likely to be anything educational ur perception is way beyond the understanding of the so called hip hop artist ur defending the concept of growing is becoming better than what u was & more than what u was able to accomplish lets face it these types of songs will never be classics becuz they lack soul it's a Shame that ur smart and uneducated at the same time u can't defend something that destroys instead of building
