Topping both the albums and singles countdowns, the ‘Toosie Slide’ rapper follows in the footsteps of Stormzy and Eminem who make similar achievement earlier this year.
Drake has made U.K. chart history after topping both the albums and singles countdowns for the third time in his career.
The rapper’s track “Toosie Slide” number one, while his “Dark Lane Demo Tapes” mixtape leads the new albums list.
He is the third artist to achieve the chart double this year, following in the footsteps of British rapper Stormzy, who took his “Heavy Is the Head” album and single “Own It” to the top, and Eminem, whose “Music to Be Murdered By” hit number one at the same time as his “Godzilla” song in January.
Drake also joins an elite club of musicians in pulling off the feat three times in his career to date, each with separate releases.
He previously scored the chart double with “Views” and the track “One Dance” in May, 2016, and with “Scorpion” and the single “In My Feelings” in July, 2019, making him just the 10th act in British chart history to do so.
He was preceded by Ed Sheeran, Rihanna, Madonna, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Queen, Cliff Richard, ABBA, and Elvis Presley.
“Dark Lane Demo Tapes” replaces Dua Lipa‘s album “Future Nostalgia” in first place, forcing her release down to number two and Lewis Capaldi‘s “Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent” slips one spot to three.
Meanwhile, “Toosie Slide” leads Doja Cat‘s “Say So” at two, and Megan Thee Stallion‘s “Savage” jumps to three on the singles chart.
