On Monday, September 13, the single, ‘Fountain’ debuted at No.26 on the Billboard chart.
The single is off Drake’s recently released album, Certified Lover Boy.
Drake’s album currently sits at No. 19. However, this week, Drake has reported nine of the 10 songs in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, while ‘Fountains,’ his collaboration with Tems sits at No. 26.
