If you’re looking for a safe bet, put your chips on the next Drake album. In June, he reached No. 1 in both the U.S. and his native Canada when “Honestly Nevermind’ debuted atop the Billboard 200, then did it again in November with ‘Her Loss,’ his collaboration with 21 Savage. If you’re keeping score, that’s seven chart-toppers in both countries out of eight studio albums since his discography began in 2010. Add in a 2019 compilation and three mixtapes, and the rapper-singer has 12 No. 1 albums in the U.S., making him one of five acts to tally more than 10 toppers on Billboard’s albums list. And while he and fellow Canadian The Weeknd continued to boycott the Recording Academy, declining to submit their 2022 albums for Grammy consideration, Drake was one of only four acts to fetch eight or more noms at November’s American Music Awards.
