Drake's 'God's Plan' debuts at No. 1 on the Hot 100
The MC's latest dethroned Camila Cabello's 'Havana'
Back in August, Drake’s 430-week streak of having at least one song on Billboard‘s Hot 100 came to a close — but the 31-year-old rap behemoth wasn’t bound to remain absent for long. Drizzy roared back in a big way Monday, becoming only the second artist in the chart’s history to debut two songs simultaneously in its top 10.
“God’s Plan,” one of two songs the MC released earlier this month under the title Scary Hours, debuted at No. 1, becoming Drake’s second Hot 100 topper as lead artist. (His previous No. 1 as lead artist was 2016’s “One Dance,” while he hit the top as featured artist on Rihanna’s “What’s My Name?” and “Work.”) The song knocked off Camila Cabello’s “Havana” after it spent a single week at No. 1. Meanwhile, Drake’s other new cut, “Diplomatic Immunity,” debuted at No. 7.
A massive debut for “God’s Plan” appeared likely when news broke Friday that the track had more than doubled Apple Music’s previous first-week streaming record, set last year by Post Malone’s own Hot 100 No. 1 “Rockstar.”
