Drake is FIRING on ALL cylinders again!  And who says that DOUBLE ALBUMS are the DEVIL?  Drake SHAMED the devil with his LATEST, ‘Scorpion’, snagging his 8th #1 album!

‘Scorpion’ debuted atop the Billboard Hot 100 with 732,000 equivalent album units for the week ending July 5. Of that number, 160,000 were traditional album sales, according to Billboard. This makes this Drake’s 8th CONSECUTIVE number one! His only project to miss the top spot was his debut EP, So Far Gone, which peaked at No. 6 in 2009.

Drizzy TIES Eminem and Kanye West for the second most #1’s. JAY-Z still reigns supreme with 14!

Additionally, Scorpion sets a one-week record for largest U.S. on-demand audio streams for an album ever with 745.92 million. In just three days, Drake beat the previous record held by Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys, which earned 431.3 million streams over seven days.

It also makes history as the first album to be streamed 1 billion times globally in a single week. Additionally, Drake has the most RIAA certifications of any artist in history with 142 million digital single sales to date.[via Rap-Up]
