Drake’s tracks from his March 5 release, Scary Hours 2, have made Billboard history. The singer is the first artist to enter the Billboard Hot 100 chart at the No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3 spots.

“What’s Next”, “Wants and Needs” featuring Lil Baby, and “Lemon Pepper Freestyle” featuring Rick Ross reached the top three spots on the chart.

He joins The Beatles and Ariana Grande as the first artist to simultaneously reach the No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3 spots on the Hot 100.

In addition, “What’s Next” is Drake’s eighth Hot 100 No. 1 and the three songs bring him to a total of 45 top 10s. Madonna follows with 38 and The Beatles have 34.

Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open”, another debut single, follows Drake at the No. 4 spot on the chart. Silk Sonic is made of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak. This marks the first time that four debuts have made the top four spots simultaneously.
