Drake makes chart history again.

The three tracks off his Scary Hours 2 pack debut in the top three positions on the Billboard Hot 100. He becomes the first artist to enter the chart at Nos. 1, 2, and 3 simultaneously. “What’s Next” opens at No. 1, followed by “Wants and Needs” featuring Lil Baby, and “Lemon Pepper Freestyle” featuring Rick Ross at No. 3.

Drake earns his eighth Hot 100 No. 1 with “What’s Next.” The trio of tracks brings his total to a record-extending 45 top 10s. Drake also joins The Beatles and Ariana Grande as the only acts ever to rank at Nos. 1, 2, and 3 on the Hot 100 simultaneously.

“What’s Next” is Drake’s fourth song to debut at No. 1 on the Hot 100, the most among male artists, following “God’s Plan,” “Nice for What,” and “Toosie Slide.” He also extends his reign for most total weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 among solo males to 51. Only Mariah Carey (84), Rihanna (60), and The Beatles (59) have more.

Both Lil Baby and Rick earn their highest-charting songs on the Hot 100 with “Wants and Needs” and “Lemon Pepper Freestyle,” respectively. Baby previously peaked at No. 3 with “The Bigger Picture,” while Ross reached No. 7 with his appearance on Drake’s “Money in the Grave.”

Silk Sonic, the duo comprised of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, also makes its debut on the Hot 100 with “Leave the Door Open,” which enters at No. 4.
