They also share two-year-old Kingston. “My mom is not here to meet either of them and isn’t here to experience any of the magic.

You are not alone.” She advised anyone experiencing both “magical” and

In the 63-year history of the Hot 100, this is just the second instance of an artist infusing 21 songs in the top 40 simultaneously, with both frames belonging to Drake. He first charted 21 titles on the Hot 100 dated July 14, 2018, concurrent with the chart arrival of his LP Scorpion (with 20 of the 21 entries that week from that set). The latest debuts extend Drake's record for the most total top 40 Hot 100 hits to 143.


This is also the fifth week in Drake's career in which he has banked at least 21 songs on the Hot 100 in a single week. He totaled a weekly-record 27 entries on the July 14, 2018, chart; 24 on July 21, 2018, and April 8, 2017; and 21 on April 15, 2017.


The 21 debuts up Drake's career total to a record-extending 258 Hot 100 appearances, dating to his first, the No. 2-peaking "Best I Ever Had," in 2009. The Glee Cast ranks second with 207 (all in 2009-13), followed by Lil Wayne (176), Taylor Swift (137) and Kanye West (133). Of Drake's 258 songs, 33 have appeared on the Hot 100 in 2021 alone, the second-most among all artists this year, after Lil Durk's 37.


Drake's nine top 10 debuts also extend his record for the most total top 10s to 54. Madonna is next with 38, followed by The Beatles (34), Rihanna (31) and Michael Jackson (30).


Meanwhile, as "Way 2 Sexy" debuts at No. 1 on the Hot 100, it marks the 52nd week in Drake has reigned, encompassing the cumulative weeks of all nine of his No. 1 hits. He's the fourth act to reach the one-year mark (dating to the chart's Aug. 4, 1958, inception), after Mariah Carey (84 combined weeks at No. 1), Rihanna (60) and The Beatles (59).


Plus, "Way 2 Sexy" earns Drake his fifth song to debut at the Hot 100's summit, tying him with Ariana Grande for the record.

Stormzy Fanboys Over Taylor Swift Backstage At MTV EMAs

 The pair both attended the MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) in Dusseldorf, Germany on Sunday (13.11.22) - where the US pop megastar dominated the evening, earning four gongs - and the Grime star was successful in his pursuit of grabbing a snap with the 'Karma' hitmaker backstage at the bash. He posted on his Instagram Story: "Man’s trying to get a selfie with Taylor Swift! Man’s running around." The 'Vossi Bop' hitmaker then captioned a selfie tagging the singer: "@taylorswift can I have a selfie please." He then updated fans: "Mans going to meet Taylor. (sic)" And sure enough, he posed with the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker before adding a final picture of himself with a massive smile beaming across his face. Pleased with himself, he gushed "So happy." The 29-year-old rapper has made a habit out of fanboying over his idols backstage at awards ceremonies. In 2020, Stormzy interrupted Billie Eilish's backstage interview at t

Drake Is Offended By Dad’s Tattoo Of His Face

    Drake shared that he isn’t too fond of his dad tattoo of his face. See the ink in question that has Drizzy wondering "why you do me like this." Drizzy took to Instagram to make fun of his dad Dennis Graham's tattoo—which happens to be a portrait of Drake's face. "I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this," the rapper wrote on Aug. 8, "We family," he added, along with laughing-crying emojis to get the joke across. Guess it's safe to assume Drake isn't a fan of the ink, which was done nearly five years ago. And since that first tattoo session, Dennis has done his best to get the tattoo changed. "Hahaha I had 16 people to try and straighten this out," Dennis commented, "they're hurting me." In a separate comment, Dennis added, "I love you and miss you." While Drake has been known to have a few portrait tattoos of his own, such as Lil Wayne, Denzel Washington, and even his dad's mugshot.

Kid Cudi Wants to Help Lil Nas X Destroy the 'Homophobic Cloud Over Hip-Hop'

  Kid Cudi is extending himself to Lil Nas X . For Time's 100 Most Influential People of 2021 list, published on Wednesday (Sept. 15), Cudi wrote about Lil Nas X and declared his support for the "Industry Baby" artist after the 22 year old tweeted that Black male rappers aren't interested in working with him. "When I saw the tweet about Nas’ album Montero not featuring Black male artists, and he replied that 'maybe a lot of them just don’t wanna work with me,' that made me sad," Cudi wrote. "There’s a homophobic cloud over hip-hop, and he’s going to break that s--- down. We have to stand with him. I’m going to do whatever I have to do to let him know -- you have my support. When we do our song together, however trippy the video is, let’s get sexy with it." After seeing Lil Nas' tweet, Cudi replied, "N---a I'll work w u and frolic in rose gardens w u and singin about my pain." In a follow up tweet, Lil Nas told his follo
