Drake Makes US Chart History...Again

Drake has made US chart history by becoming the first artist to land 29 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in the same calendar year.

The rapper's “In My Feelings” hit has held supreme for 10 weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100 countdown, taking his tally for the year - from three number ones - to 29 weeks, breaking a tie with Usher, who scored 28 chart-topping weeks in 2004.

Drake has also become the first soloist - and the second act ever - to spend at least 10 weeks at number one with three tracks – “In My Feelings,” “God's Plan” and 2016 hit “One Dance.” Boyz II Men are the only other act to achieve the feat, Billboard reports.

The Canadian has now spent a total of 49 weeks at number one on the Hot 100 and is only one more week away from tying Boyz II Men for fourth on the all-time list, headed by Mariah Carey with 79.

Billboard offers an update of the acts to spend the most time at No. 1 in any January-December period (with Drake leading in 29 of the 39 chart weeks so far in 2018).
