Drake’s “8AM In Charlotte” music video drops ahead of highly-anticipated “For All The Dogs” release
In a stunning pre-release move, Drake, the renowned Canadian rapper, has given fans an electrifying sneak peek into his forthcoming album, “For All The Dogs.”
In the early hours of October 5, Drake unveiled the music video for his track “8AM In Charlotte” exclusively on his Instagram page, with OVO Sound simultaneously sharing it on X (formerly Twitter).
This year has seen a fierce battle for the coveted No. 1 position on the Billboard 200 albums chart, with artists like Taylor Swift, SZA, and Morgan Wallen taking their turns at the top spot. Most recently, Rod Wave has held the throne for the past two weeks.
The race to conquer the Billboard 200 has always been a competitive endeavour for artists, and it captivates fans week after week. Billboard’s FAQ section explains that charts typically update every Tuesday morning, except during weeks with Monday holidays when updates occur on Wednesdays.
Billboard’s methodology for determining the week’s top album is a complex formula that factors in album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA), and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit in the equation represents either one album sale, ten individual tracks sold from an album, or a specific number of ad-supported or paid/subscription on-demand audio and video streams generated by songs from the album.
With the release of “For All The Dogs” on the horizon, Drake’s fans and music enthusiasts worldwide are eagerly anticipating the impact of this highly-anticipated project on the Billboard 200 chart.
