We can count on Drake to set several new Billboard chart records every time he drops a new album, and he did it once again! His latest LP For All the Dogs became his 13th No. 1 album in the US, in addition to setting several new Billboard Hot 100 records.

For All the Dogs hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart following its release on October 6 with 402,000 album-equivalent units earned. With 13 No. 1 albums in the United States, Drake is just one LP away from tying Jay-Z with 14 chart-topping albums, but he’s still trailing far behind The Beatles with 19 No. 1 entries.

As for Drake’s success on the Billboard Hot 100, “First Person Shooter” ft. J. Cole became his 13th song to top this chart. By doing so, the Canadian rapper tied with Michael Jackson for the most No. 1 songs among solo male artists, but he’s still behind Rihanna (14), Mariah Carey (19), and The Beatles (20).

All 23 songs from For All the Dogs entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week, bringing Drake’s total to 320 entries, making him the first artist in history to pass the 300-song mark.
