Billboard Hot 100: Drake Reigns At #1 For Eighth Week With ‘God’s Plan’

Published: Monday 19th Mar 2018 by Sam

Drake‘s domination of the Billboard Hot 100 is proving unshakable.

The rapper’s ‘God’s Plan’ is #1 for yet another week.

Dive below for details on how Drizzy is making history is major way…

Lifted from the ‘Scary Hours’ EP, the MC’s latest effort extends its reign atop of the Pop pack for a whopping eighth consecutive week.

The feat, like most things Drake, was primarily driven by dizzyingly large US streaming numbers (72.9 million), 49,000 digital downloads, and an all-format radio audience of 100 million. All accrued within the last tracking week.

‘Plan’ now stands just the sixth song in the Hot 100’s 59-year existence to spend at least its first eight weeks at #1. Here’s how where it ranks:

16 weeks,  ‘One Sweet Day,’ Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men, beginning Dec. 2, 1995
14 weeks, ‘Candle in the Wind 1997’/’Something About the Way You Look Tonight,’ Elton John, Oct. 11, 1997
11 weeks, ‘I’ll Be Missing You,’ Puff Daddy & Faith Evans feat. 112, June 14, 1997
10 weeks, ‘Hello,’ Adele, Nov. 14, 2015
8 weeks, ‘God’s Plan,’ Drake, Feb. 3, 2018
8 weeks, ‘Fantasy,’ Mariah Carey, Sept. 30, 1995

The news comes as Drizzy dropped the official remix to N.E.R.D and Rihanna‘s ‘Lemon.’

      I agree. Where are the songs made with real musicianship these days?

      • JOHNVIDAL March 20, 2018

        Almost nowhere to be found. Plus I don´t think this guy´s music is making any impact. I don´t know any song of his for example lol This is more a USA thing, even more than taylor.

    Um that list is wrong, it’s missing Whitney Houston’s 14 weeks at #1 & boy2men etc..

    Those Caucasian folks & some POC will stop at nothing for Aubrey to be on top!! I’ll continue to pass!!

    To be expected. There is no better song out right now so it is number 1 by default.

    Drake is so fine. I want him to breed me raw and let me eat his phat asss.
