Drake breaks The Beatles’ UK chart record

Rapper makes history with 'God's Plan' and 'Nice For What'

Drake has broken a UK chart record previously held by The Beatles.

The Canadian rapper tops the UK Singles Chart this week with ‘Nice For What’, making it the second time he’s done so this year after ‘God’s Plan’.

According to a press release, the quick one-two of chart-toppers means that Drake has broken a chart record for the shortest time between UK number one debuts.

The record was previously held by The Beatles when they followed ‘Get Back’ with ‘The Ballad of John and Yoko’, the group’s final UK number one, in 1969.

Last week saw Nicki Minaj discussed the beef between Drake and Meek Mill, describing it as “one of the hardest parts of my career”.

Minaj, who was dating Mill at the time, discussed the period in an interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe. “At the time, I did love both of them,” she said. “I felt so imprisoned in that moment.”

Minaj also recalled that Drake told her, “I wasn’t worried about anything in that entire situation other than what if Nicki takes a shot at me. Then what? What if Nicki spits a bar at me?”.

After calling it “one of the hardest parts of my career”, Minaj said she tried to persuade Mill to not get entangled in a beef, but “it was difficult to stay out of it.” “I was behind the scenes, wishing it wouldn’t happen,” she explained.

“I said, ‘Don’t do that.’ I think, as artists, we all look back on things that we shouldn’t have done. And that was one of those things he shouldn’t have done. But he did it, and it is what it is. What I do know is that Meek and Drake have moved on from that.”
