Drake smashes Billboard record for most weeks atop Hot 100 in a year



Three of Drake’s songs have spent a combined 29 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2018, TOPNAIJA.NG can confirm.

‘In My Feelings’ has spent 10 weeks atop the singles chart, ‘Nice for What’ reigned supreme for eight weeks while ‘God’s Plan’ was the top song for 11 weeks.

All three songs are from the Canadian rapper’s commercially-successful ‘Scorpion’ album.

He now holds the record of the only artist who has spent the most time atop the Hot 100 chart in a year, surpassing Usher who spent 28 weeks at No. 1 in 2004.

Drake is also the first solo artist to have three songs top the Hot 100 chart for at least 10 weeks each. ‘One Dance’, featuring WizKid and Kyla, belongs in that category.

According to Billboard, these are the top ranking entries on the Hot 100 chart since inception.
