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

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:

    It’s his worst album but he is smashing so hard. I can’t go anywhere without hearing Controlla, Too Good, or For Free (even though that’s not on the album) right now. I hear With You and Child’s Play a lot too.

  3. LB August 9, 2016

    Nice one, AubRih still have about 3 songs in the top 25, what a sorry state it must be for other artists.


  4. Anastasia Beaverhousen August 9, 2016

    Ok Aubrey, we see you!!

  5. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? August 9, 2016

    Congrats Drizz. Hope he doesn’t burn out too son and still have fuel left in the tank.

  6. BEY>RIH August 9, 2016

    There are only currently 5 major artists whose album sales and touring #s match the hype: Beyoncè, Adele, Talyor Swift, Justin Bieber and Drake. Not everyone can go platinum in pure sales like these artists. Congrats Drizzy!

      Don’t forget Katy Perry, Little Mix, and Pink. Pure sales are honestly dead

      • Mother August 10, 2016

        Who are little mix?

      • Grande The Way August 10, 2016

        Currently the biggest girl group in pop. They are grossing $1 million a night on their tour.

  7. Casual August 9, 2016

    The Katy Perry shade . . . The way this article was written, I thought her song had rebounded to the top 25 of the Hot 100.

  8. Keri Qween August 9, 2016

    Rihannas ANTI broke another record as one of only 11 albums this decade to spend half a year in the top 10. #AUBRIH dominating

    • Mark111 /.\ August 9, 2016

      Another week, another records broken. lol

    • LB August 9, 2016

      She is on a roll, by the time she gets Yonce’s real age, she will be untouchable.

  9. King Mark111 August 9, 2016

    We need to get Rihanna to #1 Navy. Stream Came For and Needed Me to the max this week kids.

    • BEY>RIH August 10, 2016

      Still not encouraging them to purchase the damn album?

  10. Grande The Way August 9, 2016

    47 weeks is impressive but holy cow @ Katy’s 69 weeks! Thats crazy! Ariana came half way to that by spending 34 consecutive weeks in the top 10 during the My Everything era. I’m glad Into You has a new peak, I’m predicting top 15 next week. I’m ready for One Dance to die off so Too Good can take over

  12. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? August 10, 2016

    Good for him! I’m sure his tour will cross the $100,000,000 mark. I wonder how much Future will receive, since he’s somewhat a co-headliner.

    Anyway, Sam, PLEASE post on Abel donating $250,000 to Black Lives Matter!

  13. Coolness August 10, 2016

    I can’t listen to Views in full but this era would be looked back upon as when Drake truly transcended to pop super-stardom. Sure, he’s done so mainly bu streaming but his success is reminiscent of when male artists such as Eminem, Usher, Nelly and 50 Cent RULED the singles and album charts during the first half of the 2000s. Congrats to him

    • BEY>RIH August 10, 2016

      I just hope drake can have the longevity of eminem and usher.

  14. I hate Rihanna August 10, 2016

  15. ow Reddish tran ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuyiji August 11, 2016
