Hot 100 No. 1 Single: Leading up to the album’s release, Drake had already made waves with his Hot 100 No.1 single, “Slime You Out,” featuring the talented SZA. This track not only showcased his musical prowess but also earned him his 12th No. 1 single on the Hot 100 chart, tying him for fifth place on the all-time list.
Closing in on Michael Jackson:
Drake’s continuous chart-toppers have brought him closer to surpassing the legendary Michael Jackson, who holds the record with 13 No. 1 singles among solo male artists. The King of Pop’s throne now seems within Drake’s reach.
“8 AM in Charlotte”:
To further fuel the excitement, Drake unveiled “8 AM in Charlotte” on October 5, the sixth installment in his “AM 2 PM” series. This six-minute release featured none other than his son, Adonis, adding a personal touch to the music. The song stirred a buzz on social media, with fans speculating about the individuals Drake was addressing in his lyrics.
The internet was abuzz with speculation, and names like Metro Boomin, YoungBoy NBA, Charlamagne Tha God, and Kanye West were thrown into the mix. Kanye West, in particular, drew attention after Drake’s third verse hinted at a longstanding feud, with lines like “You n-ggas obsessed with me” and “Conspiracy theories start floating around like the Kennedy guy.” This wasn’t the first time Drake had taken shots at West, as previous tracks like “Sicko Mode” and “No Stylist” have also witnessed their share of verbal jabs.
