Drake has broken yet another record this year, and at this point, it’s almost hard to keep up with which titles he currently holds. His latest smash hit “In My Feelings” spends its 10th week atop the Billboard Hot 100, and he has now officially surpassed Usher for the most weeks at No. 1 in a single year.
The Toronto rapper has remained at the top of the Hot 100 chart for an impressive 29 weeks, which is more than half the year. Usher’s record was set at 28 weeks, and he achieved this back in 2004 “Burn,” “Confessions Part II,” “My Boo,” and of course, “Yeah!”
Some other accomplishments for Drake this year include surpassing Rihanna for the most weeks at No. 1 in the past decade, and having the most songs on the Hot 100 at the same time with 27. Drake has 49 total weeks at No. 1, the most for a solo male artist. It may be a long time before someone else swoops in and starts collecting these titles from 6 God, but for now, he is here to stay.
