Drake claims Official Irish Chart Double

Drake surprise dropped a new mixtape earlier this month and while the first fan reactions were mostly positive, clearly not everyone was loving Dark Lane Demo Tapes. Stormzy, who took his album "Heavy Is the Head" and his single "Own It" to the top, and Eminem, whose "Music to Be Murdered By" reached number one at the same time as his song "Godzilla" in January. Total it's Drake's 12th high 10 venture on the chart.

It marks the third time Drake has achieved the chart double across separate releases, following his album Views and single One Dance in 2016, and album Scorpion and single In My Feelings in 2018.

Drake becomes the tenth act in United Kingdom chart history to achieve the Official Chart Double at least three times across separate releases in their career.
