Drake makes music history after the songs on his three-track “Scary Hours 2” EP, released March 9, debuted in the top three spots on the Billboard Hot 100 concurrently. This is the first time ever that an artist has had three songs debut in the top three spots of the Billboard charts, according to Billboard.
The “Scary Hours 2” leading single “What’s Next” hit No.1 first, “Wants and Needs” ft. Lil Baby came in at No.2 and “Lemon Pepper Freestyle” came in at No.3. Drake’s accomplishment was commemorated with a grand 1-2-3 party, honoring the three singles from the “Scary Hours 2” EP responsible for Drake’s historic career milestone.
The 6 God took to social media to share footage from his celebratory party, including a video clip of him linking up with rapper Bow Wow during his lush gathering. In the video clip Drake emphasizes that he had to have his friend Mr. 106 & Park at the function, thanking him for being instrumental in his success.
“I didn’t know how else to bring in 1-2-3,” Drake said to Bow Wow in the clip. “I had to link with Wizzle.”
As the two friends vibe with each other Bow Wow enthusiastically exclaims, “You know how we do it.”
Drake proceeds to directly thank Bow Wow. “I wanna thank you, man. I just want to thank y’all.”
Although some people may be confused as to why Drake thanked Bow Wow, Drake further expounded in a follow-up video that he posted to his Instagram story.
“I had to link with Wizzle,” he said referring to Bow Wow in the clip. “Everybody wants to have drinks and everybody wants to celebrate and turn up and, you know, I just had to see Wizzle. I had to see Wizzle in person. If it wasn’t for you, there wouldn’t be no me. That’s why — you know the rest, that’s why I’mma rock with y’all forever more.”
Bow Wow being inspirational to Drake makes sense, seeing as how at just 14-years-old Bow Wow had a platinum album and a Billboard Music Award. In tandem with being a teen rap star, Bow Wow also made strides on the Hollywood movie scene, starring in cult classic films like “Roll Bounce” and “Like Mike.” Bow also made BET history after he had the most #1’s videos on the popular BET television show 106 & Park, earning him the title of Mr. 106 & Park.
