Billboard Hot 100: Drake Ties Yet Another Michael Jackson Record

Published: Monday 4th Jun 2018 by Rashad

Refreshed Hot 100 charts reveal Drake‘s ‘Nice For What’ is clinging tight to the top spot for a sixth non-consecutive week.  Keeping new challenger, Post Malone & Ty Dolla $ign’s ‘Psycho,’ at bay, ‘Nice’ leads a list of Hot 100 hip hop heavyweights with his own ‘God’s Plan’ at #3 and former chart-topper, Childish Gambino‘s ‘This Is America,’ at #4.

Speaking of ‘God’s Plan,’ with the cut having logged 19 weeks on the chart in total (never falling outside of the top 3), this week saw it become the first and only song in history to accomplish such feat.  And, while that alone is enough to celebrate, the continued reign of ‘Nice’ over the Hot 100 has yet again put Drizzy in the company of music royalty.

Look inside to see how:

Two years after Drake tied Michael Jackson for ‘longest consecutive control of the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously among males’ (click here to read more about that), the rapper has tied yet another MJ record.


Drake matches Michael Jackson for the second-most weeks spent at No. 1 among solo males, after Usher. Among all artists, Drake and Jackson now share seventh place:

Most Weeks at No. 1 in Hot 100’s History
79, Mariah Carey
60, Rihanna
59, The Beatles
50, Boyz II Men
47, Usher
42, Beyonce
37, Drake
37, Michael Jackson
34, Elton John
33, Janet Jackson
33, Katy Perry


Congratz are certainly in order for the Canadian hitmaker.  Though only one week separates him from besting the #1s record of Jackson timewise, Drake’s 5 chart-toppers (Rihanna‘s “What’s My Name?,” Rihanna’s “Work,” his own “One Dance,” “God’s Plan,” and “Nice for What”) will need 9 more partners before surpassing the 13 logged by the King of Pop over his illustrious career.

    Jackson is still the better musician and better salesperson here. If you compare the sales it took MJ to get his chart placements compared to the pennies on the dollar sales Drake is pulling then one can safely conclude the chart records of today cannot be comparied to the chart records of the past without multiplying the chart records of the past by 100x.
