Last week, Drake released two new songs as part of a collaborative singles package with DJ Khaled. Although a fairly minor release in Drake terms, the songs — “Popstar” and “Greece” — have turned out to be fairly consequential, helping the Canadian pop megastar break the record for most Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hits. With “Popstar” landing at #3 on this week’s Hot 100 and “Greece” at #8, Drake has officially racked up 40 top 10s, narrowly beating out Madonna’s 38, which he previously tied. This is Drake’s second Hot 100 record in recent months; as Stereogum notes, the rapper broke the record for most songs ranked on the Hot 100 ever, with 208 entries.
Last week, Drake released a new Headie One collab, "Only You Freestyle." The song comes only a few months after May's Dark Lane Demo Tapes, which featured a collection of leaks, loosies, and leftover album material.
