Drake and 21 Savage’s new album Her Loss debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s 200 albums as Taylor Swift’s song “Anti-Hero” maintained the top spot on the Hot 100, as Drake and Swift continued their competition as some of the most accomplished artists in chart history.
Eight songs from Her Loss debuted in the top 10 of the Hot 100, according to Billboard, making Drake the first artist in history to have twice occupied at least eight spots on the chart (he also accomplished this feat with 2021’s Certified Lover Boy.)
Swift became the first artist in history to occupy the entire chart’s top 10 when her album Midnights was released three weeks ago.
With the success of Her Loss, Drake extended his record as the artist with the most top 10 hits on the Hot 100 in history, with 67 (Swift has the second most, with 40).
“Anti-Hero” had the biggest sales week for a song in five years, with 327,000 paid downloads, when Swift released “Look What You Made Me Do.”
With Her Loss’s top ranking on the albums chart, Drake surpasses Swift as the artist with the third-most No. 1 albums: The Beatles have 19, Jay-Z has 14, Drake has 12 and Swift, Bruce Springsteen and Barbra Streisand are tied with 11, Billboard reported.
Her Loss had the fourth-largest streaming week ever with 513.56 million streams; Drake’s album Scorpion (745.92 million) holds the record, followed by his work Certified Lover Boy (743.67 million) and Swift’s Midnights (549.26 million). 404,000. That’s how many equivalent album units Her Loss earned in its first week, making it the third-biggest debut of 2022.
