Billboard Hot 100: Justin Timberlake Set To Unseat Drake’s ‘One Dance’ From Top Spot

thatgrapejuice drake hot 100 justin timberlake

To say the race for #1 on next week’s Hot 100 is tight is quite the understatement.

Just one week after ‘One Dance’ – the latest single from Drake‘s sixth album ‘Views’ – topped the charts (giving the rapper his first leading reign atop the tally), news comes the dapper divo’s run may be abruptly cut due to his ‘Cabaret’ co-star Justin Timberlake.

Indeed, after the latter’s new single, ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling,’ felt its way to the top of iTunes charts shortly after its premiere, reports now have it the tune will be experiencing similar success on the Hot 100.

The Predictions Are In: Meghan Trainor’s ‘Thank You’ Set To Sell…

'Bass' Beauty Battles Beyonce & Drake For Billboard 200's Top spot

Meghan-Trainor-Thank-You-2016-2480x2480-thatgrapejuice

She may have taken a tumble while in hot promotion of her sophomore album,  ‘Thank You,’ but now it appears Meghan Trainor has the fans to thank for ensuring the album didn’t take a similar tumble on charts.

Indeed, after a week of Apple exclusivity, the singer/songwriter’s set – which became widely available on May 13 – is on track for a moderate debut sales week due to stiff competition from the likes of chart titans Beyonce, Drake, and more.  But, with the assistance of hits ‘Me Too’ & ‘No,’ Trainor may be well on her way to leaving the two in her rearview to nab her second occupancy of the Billboard 200’s top spot.

How is ‘Thank You’ expected to fare in comparison to her ‘All About That Bass’-led debut album ‘Title’ and its 238,000 first week sales?  Find out below:

drake hot 100 elvis thatgrapejuice

With the inclusion of streaming stats in Billboard’s single and album charts’ placements these days, the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 records of many-a-legend are unsafe.

Indeed, thanks to Rihanna, the likes of Aretha Franklin, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, and Whitney Houston have all seen their historic achievements on the platforms met or surpassed.  Now, the Bajan beauty’s ‘Work‘ co-star Drake, is joining the fun.

In September 2015 he became the 4th artist ever to place at least 100 titles on the Hot 100 over the course of a career. Before him, only his mentor Lil’ Wayne, FOX’s hit musical show ‘Glee,’ and Elvis Presley were in the exclusive club. This week, after setting album streaming records, moving over 1 million units of his latest album ‘Views,and gaining 20 simultaneous placements on the singles chart, Drizzy’s not only crushed a record by fellow Canadian heartthrob Justin Bieber, but he also pushes past Presley’s.

With 1.04 million units moved the debut week of his latest album, Drake is undoubtedly enjoying the ‘Views’ from the top of the Billboard 200.  Abruptly ending the reign of the Queen Bey’s ‘Lemonade,’ ‘Views’ rolled all up and over competition with a whopping 245.1 million streams in addition to its massive sales.

But, despite the onslaught this week, the prior week’s top performing acts – Prince, Rihanna, and, of course, Beyonce – have maintained buoyancy on the chart’s upper quintet of positions.  While Prince fans continue to show their unwavering support for the artist after his untimely death, Rih – thanks in no small part to her ongoing ‘Anti’ tour – is showing some major staying power on the streaming front since its February debut.

Find out where these three, and all of your other faves from the day, landed on this week’s official Billboard 200 chart check:
