Rapper Drake "Summer Sixteen Single Reaches No.6 On Billboard Top 100 Chart
|Rapper Drake "Summer Sixteen Single |
Reaches No.6 On Billboard Top 100 Chart
The duo’s ANTI single sold 156,000 downloads to arrive at No. 3 on the Digital Sales chart. It also popped up at No. 7 on the Hot 100 and helped RiRi’s eighth album secure the No. 1 post on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
“Summer Sixteen” and “Work” fall below Zayn Malik’s “Pillowtalk,” which sold 267,000 units in its first week in the U.S. to top the chart. The song also had an astounding 22.3 million U.S. streams.
Twenty One Pilots, Flo Rida, and G-Eazy round out the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 list for the week dated Feb. 20, which can be seen below.
Of course, debuting the song on OVO sound, taking some subliminal shots at his enemies, and effectively scrubbing the track from the net while uploading it to iTunes certainly played a role in the record's success.
As a result, it debuted -- rather perfectly -- at number SIX on this week's charts (it's also his SIXTEENth entry into the Hot 100).
This puts the song one spot ahead of Drizzy's collaboration with Rihanna, "Work," which moves from 9 to 7 this week.
So far, Drake has yet to surpass the #2 spot on the Hot 100 as a solo artist (both "Hotline Bling" and "Best I Ever Had" peaked there). We're not sure "Summer Sixteen" will be the song to catapult Drizzy to the top of the charts, but its presence in the top ten is reassuring that the rapper still has a great chance of hitting that career landmark soon.
