Chart Check [Billboard Hot 100]: Drake Notches 50th Consecutive Week in Top 10

drake-hot-100-record-thatgrapejuice

While the Billboard 200 run of Drake‘s latest album, ‘Views,’ is by no means anything to shake a stick it, the Hot 100 runs of the songs that line its tracklisting are nothing less than historic.

As if notching 20 simultaneous Hot 100 hits wasn’t enough, the crooning emcee is currently reigning with the longest consecutive top 10 run of any male artist in history.  After last month saw him best fellow Canadian hitmaker, The Weeknd’s, impressive 45 week run over 2015-16, this week – as his song ‘One Dance’ slips to #8 – the Young Money maestro notched his 50th (yes, count ’em) consecutive week in the top 10.

The accomplishment not only extends his reign as the male artist with the most consecutive weeks in the tally’s top 10, but it puts him in second place overall (behind Katy Perry‘s whopping 69 consecutive week run at the turn of the decade).

Until we find out if he’ll be beating Miss Perry, tuck in below to find out all of your other favorites landed on this week’s refreshed Hot 100:

Drake Teases ‘VIEWS’ Visual Project

drake-views-promo-thatgrapejuice

Drake‘s domination with ‘VIEWS’ has been astounding on many a front. Not just its gargantuan sales, but the fact that they’ve been accrued without the help of any videos.

Indeed, for all their success, lead singles ‘One Dance’ and ‘Controlla’ have yet to receive the visual treatment.

That all looks set to change, though. Because, after dropping a hint last month, the Canadian rapper has offered the strongest suggestion yet that something is near.

Chart Check [Hot 100]: Drake Extends Record-Breaking Run With Hits From ‘Views’

Sia Seizes Third Consecutive Week At #1 With ‘Thrills’

sia-drake-thatgrapejuice hot 100 third week

As powerhouse singer/songwriter Sia enjoys her third week of thrilling listeners with her first #1 on the Hot 100, ‘Cheap Thrills’ (featuring Sean Paul), the week’s real winner just may (yet again) be Drake.

After the rapper’s hit ‘One Dance,’ which Sia dethroned to claim the top spot, reigned over the Hot 100 and headlines with an impressive 10 nonconsecutive week run on the tally’s perch, what may be equally impressive is the emcee’s overall time in the top 10 with other hits from ‘Dance’s parent album ‘Views.’  A history-making feat to say the least, Billboard reports:

“…[Drake] has now spent 47 consecutive weeks in the region, padding his record among solo males. His streak began on the Oct. 3, 2015, Hot 100, when “Hotline Bling” jumped 16-9. The record among all acts belongs to Katy Perry, who ranked in the Hot 100’s top 10 for 69 consecutive weeks (all as a lead) in 2010-11.”

Snatching the title from fellow Canadian hitmaker, The Weeknd, Drizzy may be well on his way to climbing past Katy’s historic 69 week figure from the looks of other ‘Views’ songs that are working their way up the charts.  Until then, tuck in below to find out where Ms. Perry, Mr. Graham, and all of your other faves of the day landed on this week’s refreshed Hot 100:
