(AllHipHop News) Champagne Papi now stands alone with a Billboard Hot 100 record. The Toronto entertainer's "God's Plan" spends it's 10th straight week at #1, making Drake the only solo lead male artist to ever have two songs rule the chart for that amount of time.
In 2016, his "One Dance" single featuring WizKid and Kyla led the Hot 100 for 10 weeks as well. "God's Plan" also became only the fifth song to see at least its first 10 weeks in the top spot.
Drake joins Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men ("One Sweet Day," 16 weeks), Elton John ("Candle in the Wind 1997"/"Something About the Way You Look Tonight," 14 weeks), Puff Daddy & Faith Evans ("I'll Be Missing You," 11 weeks), and Adele ("Hello," 10 weeks) for that exclusive club.
As far as pulling off the double-dime at #1, the OVO frontman is on the short list with Pharrell Williams, Boyz II Men, Mariah Carey, The Black Eyed Peas, and Santana. Pharrell achieved the feat once as a lead artist ("Happy," 10 weeks) and once as a featured artist with Robin Thicke ("Blurred Lines," 12 weeks).https://www.google.com/sorry/index?continue=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjBARJUOo5Y&q=EgQs6nbMGJiQg_kFIhkA8aeDS3QV1javlRA4lBHFQdsLVADNXtwjMgFy
