Notably, Drake becomes the first solo male to simultaneously debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 twice, as Honestly, Nevermind and “Jimmy Cooks” join his Certified Lover Boy and “Way 2 Sexy,” which roared in atop the respective tallies dated Sept. 18, 2021.

The Hot 100 blends all-genre US streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated July 2, 2022) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (June 28). For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.

“Jimmy Cooks,” released on OVO / Republic Records, tallied 42.2 million streams, 3 million radio airplay audience impressions and 6,000 downloads sold in its first week (June 17-23), according to Luminate, following the June 17 arrival of parent album Honestly, Nevermind, announced only hours before its release.
