Drake is the king of the music charts again with the #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 and the top album on the Billboard 200.

“Jimmy Cooks,” the only collab on his new Honestly, Nevermind album, featuring 21 Savage, debuts at the top of the Hot 100 for Champagne Papi’s 11th Hot 100 No. 1. Drake also has the No. 6 track, “Sticky,” and the #7 song, “Falling Back.” Both are from his new chart-topping Honestly, Nevermind album.

The Toronto superstar is the first solo male singer to simultaneously debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 twice. On September 18, 2021, Certified Lover Boy was the top album and “Way 2 Sexy,” was the #1 single.

“Jimmy Cooks” appears to be inspired by the character Jimmy Brooks, which Drake portrayed on the CTV drama Degrassi: The Next Generation from 2001 to 2008.

As previously reported, Honestly, Nevermind debuted at #1 with 204,000 equivalent units. This is Drake’s 11th #1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, making him the fifth artist to release more than 10 #1 albums. Leading the pack with 19 #1s is The Beatles, followed by Jay-Z with 14, and Bruce Springsteen and Barbra Streisand tied with 11 each.

The 14-track album boasts the fourth-largest streaming week for an album in 2022, Billboard reports; Bad Bunny, Kendrick Lamar and Future make up the top three. Honestly, Nevermind is Drake’s seventh studio effort and the follow-up to Certified Lover Boy.
