Drake has a full on phenomenon on his hands with his latest album Certified Lover Boy.

With nine out of the 10 songs debuting in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Drake is in elite company as he tied The Beatles for most top 10 hits on the same album. In doing so, Drake also surpassed Michael Jackson, who had seven with his album Thriller.

Michael’s son, Prince Jackson, weighed in on the feat and gave his thoughts when TooFab asked for his thoughts on whether or not he’s as big as his dad was in his prime.

“I mean everybody has their own definition of great, and all respect to Drake and everything that he does,” he said. “But what my father and my family accomplished, in the time that they did it, is very unlikely never to be matched again.”
