There’s a couple universal stereotypes about Canadian people. There’s the one about us being too polite, the one about us constantly apologizing, and my personal favorite, the one where we refuse to take a compliment, almost to the point of aggression (“NO, you make the better butter tarts, I INSIST“). Drake has proven the last one is false.
Back in June, Drake dropped the song Money in the Grave, which immediately landed in the number 7 spot, thus giving him is 35th song on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart to make it into the Top 10. With that, Drake became the record holder of the second-most top 10’s, beating the previous record set by The Beatles, who held strong with 34 songs. The current record holder for the top spot is Madonna, with 38 songs.
Drake already claimed that he had “more slaps that The Beatles” in Meek Mill’s Going Bad. But it’s hard to brag about beating The Beatles when you have to start with, “Okay, so pull up YouTube and search Going Bad, then skip to about a minute in…“. Complex points out that it looks like Drake decided to celebrate his Billboard position by getting a tattoo of The Beatles iconic Abbey Road album cover on his left forearm. But because it’s Drake, he added what appears to be himself, walking in front and waving goodbye at the rest of the Beatles.

Complex points out that Abbey Road was released 50 years ago this week, so there is a chance Drake is just a huge fan of the Fab 4. But probably not.
Neither of the surviving Beatles have commented on Drake’s new tattoo. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr might be thinking, “Weird flex, but okay.” One thing is for sure, and that’s that Paul is probably cringing a little. Paul McCartney admitted a few years ago that he though the worst mistake Noel Gallagher did was declare that Oasis were bigger than The Beatles. Paul claimed it was the “kiss of death.”
Drake will probably still have hits. But what if he cursed himself with that tattoo? What if he never gets another Billboard hit, and suddenly everyone forgets Drake ever existed, just like that movie Yesterday? Well, everyone but Soulja Boy, who will still be dragging Drake by asking, “DRAaaaake? DrraAAAKE? You mean the dude with the corny-ass Monkees tattoo?”
