Drake's new album, 'Scorpion', is dominating charts around the world. Singles from the album just claimed seven spots on the Billboard Hot 100's Top 10. 

His hit single, 'Nice for What', returned to number one - knocking Cardi B, Bad Bunny, and J Balvin's 'I Like It' off the top spot.

'Nice for What' is currently at number seven on the Coca-Cola Top 40

The other six Drake songs to feature on the chart are 'Nonstop', 'God's Plan', 'In My Feelings', 'I'm Upset', 'Emotionless', and 'Don't Matter to Me' featuring Michael Jackson.

The rapper broke The Beatles' record of five simultaneous hits on the Top 10, which was set in 1964. The Beatles are still the only musicians to dominate the top five on the Hot 100 in one week. 

'Scorpion' is also the number one album in America. It's Drake's eighth consecutive number one album. As if that wasn't enough good news, all 25 tracks on the double-album feature on the Hot 100. 

The album is also the first to achieve one billion streams around the world in just one week.
