Drake's newest single is a Top 10 hit. Shocking, right?

Per Billboard, Drake's "Fake Love" debuted at No. 10 this week, vaulting 14 spots in its second week on the chart. This news shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone considering 72 hours after the song's initial release, it was already No. 1 on both the iTunes Top 100 Songs Chart and the Apple Music Top 100 USA Chart. Also, Drake.

Additionally, "Fake Love," which racked up 5.4 million streams on Spotify in its first three days and currently sits at 37.5 million streams, landed at No. 1 on the audio subscription services-based On-Demand Songs streaming chart, charging up seven spots to become the Canadian hitmaker's fifth No. 1 position on the chart since it launched in March of 2012. (In case you were wondering, Drake holds the record for the most No. 1 singles on the On-Demand Songs streaming chart.)
