Jay-Z’s Drake Feature Earns His First Top-10 Hit Since Beyonce’s ‘Drunk In Love’.
Drake’s latest album, Certified Lover Boy, premiered at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and he also made history by being the first artist to have nine top-ten songs on the Hot 100 list in the same week. However, Drake isn’t the only one who has benefited from this success; according to Billboard, Jay-Z, who appears on “Love All,” has reached yet another career milestone: his 22nd top-10 hit.
Jay-Z and Mariah Carey, who were recently the subject of a (debunked) rumor that they were feuding, now have the distinction of being the only musicians to have top 10 hits in the 1990s, 2000s, tens, and twentys. It’s also Jay’s first top-10 since his appearance on Beyonce’s 2013 single “Drunk In Love,” which reached No. 2 on the Hot 100. In fact, if his appearance on Kanye West’s Donda had been credited as such, he would have had his 23rd top-10 hit But as his name doesn’t appear on the official tracklisting for “Jail,” he presumably had to wait a week for his latest inclusion to count.
Jay was one of several musicians who contributed to both albums, attracting a lot of attention and becoming a Twitter trending topic due to his connection to both.
