Drake and Eminem have had an interesting relationship as of late. The Canadian rapper and NBA superfan has been putting out hints about a possible collaboration with the legendary Detroit star. Now, the Billboard charts are saying that Drake is not only worthy of the huge collaboration, but has equaled Em in a very important metric.

Eminem was previously the only rapper in history to have three albums spend five weeks or more at the top of the Billboard 200. Now, according to @chartdata, Drizzy has tied that mark with Certified Lover Boy.

“@Drake joins @Eminem as the only rapper in history to have three albums spend at least 5 weeks each at #1 on the Billboard 200.”

Throughout his career, Shady has amassed a staggering 10 Billboard 200 #1 albums. Eminem hit the milestone with “Music to Be Murdered By,” released in early 2020. It was his first full-length release since “Kamikaze” also completed the feat.

The amazing record-tying performance of Certified Lover Boy will now be considered for several Grammy Award nominations. Drake’s massive sales success certainly puts him in one league with Marshall. Will that translate into a massively successful collaboration? Time will tell, and nothing is set in stone.

Eminem is the most successful rapper of all time. He’s even got a restaurant named after a lyric in one of his songs. He’s done just about everything there is in the music industry and starred in a hit film. The next challenge for Shady might just be to create a blockbuster track or two with Drake.
