Released at the top of March, the visual has over 27 million views on Youtube
“What’s Next” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, giving Drake his eighth chart-topper in his career. It remains a top 20 staple on the Hot 100 since its release.
The rest of the Scary Hours 2 three-pack included “Wants and Needs” featuring Lil Baby and the Rick Ross-assisted “Lemon Pepper Freestyle,”
With Drake remaining tight-lipped about Certified Lover Boy‘s status, it doesn’t look as if he’ll be delivering on his alleged promise to Akademiks of releasing CLB before April’s out.
Meanwhile, Drake joined the Ski Challenge phenomenon sweeping Hip Hop. The viral challenge was sparked over the weekend following the release of Young Thug and Gunna’s “Ski” off their Slime Language 2 compilation album.
