According to Billboard. The Canadian emcee  is responsible for 42 percent of the 50-position chart. He has 21 concurrent songs on the list.

His album sets a  new record for the most concurrently charting hits.

All 17 songs from his new album, IYRTITL, have entered the chart, mainly due to his online succes of downloading and streaming. Nielson Music has reported that for the week ending February 22, each track has been streamed at least 1.8 million times in the U.S.

While “Energy” is the highest ranking song off the album at #9 on the chart, Drake has two Top 5 collaborations with Nicki Minaj, with “Only” and “Truffle Butter” coming in at #4 and #5, respectively.
