Drake’s new album For All The Dogs has become his 13th No. 1 on the Billboard 200, debuting at the top of the chart. The opening was largely driven by streaming numbers. It earned the largest streaming week of 2023 for any album, and the fourth-largest ever, continuing Drake’s record-setting run in that metric. Currently, four of the top five biggest streaming weeks ever were generated by a Drake album. And with 13 No. 1 records on the Billboard 200, he’s now behind only The Beatles — with 19 No. 1s — and Jay-Z with 14. Drake bested Taylor Swift, with 12, to earn the No. 3 spot. (However, Swift’s re-recorded 1989 [Taylor’s Version], is coming Oct. 27.) Albums number 2 through 7 on this week’s new Billboard 200 chart are all former No. 1s. Morgan Wallen, Rod Wave, Olivia Rodrigo, and Zach Bryan.
