Drake never had any trouble soaring to the top of the Billboard charts, and he’s done it once again! His latest album For All the Dogs debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart, becoming his 13th LP to do so, and set several major records on the Billboard Hot 100 along the way.

With 402,000 album-equivalent units earned during its first week on the chart, For All the Dogs was a clear leader on the Billboard 200 chart this week. It’s Drake’s 13th album to hit No. 1 in the US, the third-most chart-leaders in the U.S. behind Jay-Z with 14 and The Beatless with 19.

For All the Dogs also made quite a splash on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with all of its 23 tracks making the cut. To make the whole thing even more impressive, seven of them made it to the top ten, including “First Person Shooter” ft. J. Cole, Drake’s 13th chart-topper in the US.

Drake is now tied with Michael Jackson for the most No. 1 songs among solo male artists, but he’s yet to surpass Rihanna (14), Mariah Carey (19), and The Beatles (20). He also became the first artist in history with over 300 Billboard Hot 100 entries with a total of 320.
