Chart things. It’s a lot of chart things.

Proving projections correct, Drake’s “God’s Plan” has officially debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking his fourth chart-topper overall and second as a lead artist.

According to Billboard, “God’s Plan” sold 127,000 downloads and was streamed 82.4 million times in the U.S. in the week ending Jan. 25. It becomes the fourth-largest streaming week following Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” (103.1 million and 97.6 million in its first two weeks) and Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” (84.5 million).

Additionally, Drake’s other Scary Hours single “Diplomatic Immunity” enters the Hot 100 at No. 7. He becomes the second act to debut two songs in the top 10 simultaneously.

Drizzy previously topped the Hot 100 with Rihanna’s “What’s My Name?” in 2010 and RiRi’s “Work” in 2016. Also in 2016, he bowed at No. 1 with his WizKid and Kyla-assisted “One Dance.”

Prior to reaching the pinnacle position, “God’s Plan” was already breaking records left and right. Produced by Noah Shebib, Cardo, and Boi-1da, the song shattered Spotify’s single-day streaming record in the U.S. with 4,326,679 streams on Jan. 22.

But the records didn’t end there. Apple Music later added to the accolades, when Zane Lowe reported that “God’s Plan” had been streamed 14 million times on the platform.

Now, Drake has his sights set on the future. He is reportedly working on new music with the likes of Bad Bunny, Pierre Bourne, and London On Da Track.
