Drake joins King of Pop with 7 hits on top 100 list
Drake has made music history with his Scorpion album, which featured seven songs that made the top ten in the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The songs are Nice For What, In My Feelings, God’s Plan, Nonstop, Emotionless, I’m Upset, and Don’t Matter to Me, featuring Michael Jackson.
Is Drake the new King of Pop? Interestingly, it was the original King of Pop who was the first artist to have seven songs in the Hot 100 chart. Michael Jackson achieved this with Thriller released in 1982, which is the best selling album of all time. The songs to reach the Hot 100 from the album were Thriller, Beat It, Billie Jean, Wanna Be Startin Somethin, Human Nature, P.Y.T (Pretty Young Thing) and The Girl is Mine featuring Paul McCartney.
If you want to pay tribute to the King of Pop, there is no method more fun that playing Unibet’s online casino slot game, Michael Jackson King of Pop. The game features five reels with over 20 play lines, brilliant graphical representations of Michael Jackson and you can also hear his most famous tracks; together with five excellent bonus features.
Since Thriller achieving seven top 10s, Bruce Springsteen managed the rare feat with Born In The U.S.A. album. Everyone will be familiar with Dancing In the Dark, Cover Me, Born In The U.S.A., I’m On Fire, Glory Days, I’m Goin’ Down and My Hometown. Following this album, the only other artist to enjoy seven top 10 hits is Michael’s sister Janet Jackson with Rhythm Nation.
However, what is even interesting is this is not the first time Drake has equaled Michael Jackson. In 2016, his album Views and the single One Dance were number one on the Billboard Top 100 album and singles chart respectively. The last time this happened was in 1983, when Michael Jackson had Thriller and Billie Jean at number one in the charts.
Drake has managed yet again to emphatically prove his critics wrong. The artist just seems to keep on peaking and achieving levels in the music industry that is frightening. The singer continues to amaze and break records, with the fact being that no one knows when he will finally peak in his career.
We definitely have another King of Pop on our hands. Drake’s legacy hasn’t stretched to the online casino world yet, but keep an eye out, as he’ll be sure to follow Michael Jackson into that world one day.
