For Drake, it really is as easy as one, two, three. He recently released "Scary Hours 2," a mini-album with three songs on it. And all of those songs debuted in the top three of the Billboard Hot 100 list. No other artist has ever pulled this off. And so the eternal question, where does Drake go from here?

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "WHAT'S NEXT")

DRAKE: (Singing) We'll see what's 'bout to happen next. OK, OK, OK.

KING: OK, Drake.
