Number One Records: God’s Plan

Audio: Drake – “God’s Plan”

From Scary Hours, out now on Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records.

Drake knocks out Camila Cabello after only one week at the top of the chart. “God’s Plan” had 82.4 million U.S. streams and 127,000 downloads sold in the week ending Jan. 25, as well as 24 million in all-format airplay audience in the week ending Jan. 28.

I know I’m not the intended audience for mainstream pop hip hop, but this sounds so boring and repetitive to me. Maybe they’re trying to sound hypnotic but it ends up coming across as narcoleptic. Is everybody on ludes these days? (Oh…right, I guess we are.)

But at least there’s one funny part of this song:

She say, “Do you love me?” I tell her, “Only partly.
I only love my bed and my mama. I’m sorry.”

I think Drake’s been listening to Morrissey!

“God’s Plan” is only the 29th song to debut at #1 in the Hot 100’s 59-year history. The first song to do it was Michael Jackson’s “You Are Not Alone” in 1995 and the previous one was DJ Khaled’s “I’m The One” last year.
