Drake just keeps winning.

After securing a gold plaque and breaking his own Spotify record, Drizzy made even more history.

With the release of his new album If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late, Drake will chart 14 singles in Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. That number ties his own record, set in 2013 when he dropped Nothing Was The Same. Per Billboard

Drake’s 14 titles on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (dated Feb. 28, 2015):
No. 4 – “Only,” Nicki Minaj, featuring Drake, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown
No. 6 – “Truffle Butter,” Nicki Minaj, featuring Drake & Lil Wayne
No. 14 – “Tuesday,” ILoveMakonnen, featuring Drake
No. 17 – “Energy” (Debut)
No. 18 – “Blessings,” Big Sean, featuring Drake
No. 25 – “Preach,” featuring PartyNextDoor (Debut)
No. 26 – “Legend” (Debut)
No. 27 – “10 Bands” (Debut)
No. 30 – “Used To,” featuring Lil Wayne (Debut)
No. 34 – “No Tellin'” (Debut)
No. 38 – “Jungle” (Debut)
No. 44 – “6PM In New York” (Debut)
No. 45 – “Now & Forever” (Debut)
No. 46 – “6 Man” (Debut)

Drake will also become the first rapper to top Billboard’s new Top 100 Artist chart, which tracks radio airplay, streaming data, sales and social media. So basically the 6 God was the most played, bought, streamed and talked about artist this week.

Spring 2015 is definitely poppin’, just like he said it would be.
