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:
