The rapper released a three-track EP on Friday which has dominated conversations online and racked up huge streaming numbers already.

What’s Next, which has Spotify global’s biggest debut of 2021 with 6.9 million streams, should debut at the summit of the Billboard’s main singles chart based on current projections.

In fact, the songs on Scary Hours 2 take the top three spots on the US Spotify chart, led by What’s Next with 3.69 million streams followed by Wants and Beeds featuring Lil Baby (3.49 million streams) and Lemon Pepper Freestyle featuring Rick Ross (2.68 million streams).

Drake has seven songs that have topped the Billboard Hot 100, in addition to 42 Top 10 hits, the most of any artiste.

Scary Hours 2 precedes the release of the Canadian rapper’s sixth studio album, Certified Lover Boy, which was delayed due to a leg injury he suffered.
