Drake has revealed plans for the three-day October World Weekend, set to kick off July 28. Drizzy posted the official lineup to the event on his Instagram, which includes All Canadian North Stars for day one (July 28), Lil Baby and Chris Brown for day two (July 29), and a highly anticipated Young Money reunion on day three (August 2) featuring headliners Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj.
It’s been an exciting time for Drake, who recently arned his first No.1s on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums and Hot Dance/Electronic Songs charts, both from the week of July 2.
On Top Dance/Electronic Albums, Drake’s Honestly, Nevermind clocked in with 204,000 equivalent album units in the June 17-23 tracking week, according to Luminate.
Drake claimed a record eight of the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart’s top 10 positions. Below “Falling Back” at No.1 were “Texts Go Green” (No.2), “Massive” (No.3), “Calling My Name” (No.5), “A Keeper” (No.6), “Currents” (No.7), “Flight’s Booked” (No.8), and “Overdrive” (No.10). Overall, 10 tracks from Drake’s new album claimed spots on the chart.
Honestly, Nevermind was also the first album to top both the Dance/Electronic Albums and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts.
According to Billboard, Honestly, Nevemind and “Jimmy Cooks,” which features 21 Savage, came in at No.1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 and Billboard Hot 100. These marked Drake’s 11th entry atop each list. Drake is now one of the only five acts ever to have more than ten No. 1 albums.
It wasn’t necessarily a slamdunk for Drake’s seventh proper album (mixtapes and EPs are also included in his tally) to reach that coveted top spot either. After all, he did break with the past a bit for its creation, moving in a more house/Baltimore club-oriented direction and bringing in a new batch of producers including Black Coffee, Kid Masterpiece, and more to aid in that agenda. But that doesn’t seem to have impeded the progress of Honestly, Nevermind a bit.
