Drake Becomes First Male Artist To Ever Log 50 Consecutive Weeks On Top 10 Chart


(AllHipHop News) Drake has made history on the U.S pop charts by becoming the first male artist to hit 50 consecutive weeks in the Billboard Hot 100 top 10.

The rapper’s “One Dance” drops a spot from seven to eight on the new countdown, released on Monday (August 29), extending his top 10 stay to 50 weeks, two ahead of Ace of Bass’ run in 1993 and 1994, and 19 behind Katy Perry’s record reign in 2010 and 2011.

Drake’s streak began back in October of 2015, when “Hotline Bling” jumped into the top 10.

Meanwhile, The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” has landed a second week at number one on the Hot 100, holding off Major Lazer’s “Cold Water” at two.

Sia’s “Cheap Thrills” dips a spot to three, while Twenty One Pilots also make chart history, becoming one of only a handful of groups who have scored two top fives in the same week – the band’s “Heathens” from the Suicide Squad: The Album soundtrack comes in at four and “Ride” jumps up a spot to five.

Only three rock acts have managed to score two top five Hot 100 hits in the same week in the chart’s 58-year history – The Beatles and Elvis Presley.

And Twenty One Pilots, aka Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, are only the third duo with top fives in the same week, behind Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Outkast.
