Drake Poised for No. 1 Debut on Billboard Hot 100 With ‘God’s Plan’
The song was released on Jan. 19 along with "Diplomatic Immunity" from Drake's two-song EP, Scary Hours, and was obviously an immediate hit. If it hits no. 1, it'll be the Toronto super star's first no. 1 debut. According to preliminary tracking, "God's Plan" could draw over 55 million U.S. streams, reports Billboard.
"Diplomatic Immunity" doesn't have shabby numbers either, it's expected to start with over 20 million first-week U.S. streams.
Should he come in at no. 1 as projected, this would be his fourth Hot 100 No. 1 and second as a lead artist. Drizzy's other tracks to hit no. 1 include 2016's "One Dance" and two tracks with Rihanna, 2016's "Work" and 2010's "What's My Name?"
As of now, it hasn't been confirmed that Drake's working on a full-length album but it certainly seems that way. His last full release was 2017's More Life.
