Subject: Rap artist Drake sets new record

Written By: whistledog on 10/03/13 at 5:45 pm

Former actor turned rapper Aubrey 'Drake' Graham has become the first Canadian artist to have every song from 1 album reach the US R&B chart.  His new album Nothing Was the Same was released on September 20, and since then, between the regular and deluxe versions of this album, all 15 songs reached the US R&B Chart.  This is not only his 3rd album, but his 3rd album to reach #1 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart

Not all of these are peak positions (yet), but notice how very little red there is compared to the blue?  Some Canadian artists make more noise outside of Canada than they do in Canada, but in this case, it's the rap music.  Rap music is liked in Canada, but it does not do as well as it does in America.

I'm not a big fan of his music, but I do like how he incorporates his homeland into his work.  In the video for Started at the Bottom, he plays a Shoppers Drug Mart employee
