Besides topping the charts and respectively earning their second No. 1 album of 2015 with What a Time To Be Alive, Drake and Future have even more reasons to celebrate this week now that their joint album has spawned eight songs on the Billboard Hot 100.

The surprise mixtape-album debuted atop the Billboard 200 this week with 375,000 albums sold, according to Nielsen Music, marking the third highest-selling debut week of 2015. Now on the Hot 100 chart, eight of the 11 songs off the project have dashed onto the chart, including “Jumpman” at No. 52, “Diamonds Dancing” at No. 70, “Big Rings” (No. 75), “Digital Dash” (No. 81), “Live From the Gutter” (No. 85), “Scholarships” (No. 86), and “I’m the Plug” (No. 89).

But the Drizzy Hendrix Hot 100 overhaul isn’t the only feat these two accomplished on the songs chart this week, as the entire What A Time album also debuted all over the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with “Jumpman” taking the top entrance at No. 18. The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness, Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly, and Drake’s own If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late have all scored multiple entires on the Hot 100 because of the popularity of streaming music services on outlets like Spotify, Rhapsody, and Apple Music. In What a Time’s case, the joint project was reportedly streamed 40.3 million times around the world within its first week, including 35.1 million times in the U.S.

Elsewhere making moves on the Hot 100 chart is the Weeknd, whose Beauty Behind the Madness album also took over the songs list after its August 29th release. The singer’s “The Hills” conquers the top of the chart for the second week, while “Can’t Feel My Face” sticks at No. 3.

Justin Bieber, who recently discussed redemption and aspiring to “live like Jesus” in his Complex cover story this week, lands at No. 2 with his smash “What Do You Mean?”
