Drake slid right back into the Hot 100 history books thanks to his seventh chart-topper, ‘Toosie Slide.’
The OZ-produced cut, named in honor of the social media influencer who helped it go viral on Tik Tok, exploded on other social networking outlets as well after its April 3 release.
Debuting at #1 on the refreshed Hot 100 (as we reported here) thanks to a handsome mix of digital downloads (25,000), radio airplay (34.6 million impressions), and streams (55.5 million), the song’s entry saw him claim the record for becoming the first male act to nab three #1 debuts over his career (second act overall to Mariah Carey).
That wasn’t the only historic feat, however. Look inside to see what other stake ‘Toosie’ claimed on this week’s ‘TGJ Chart Check.’
‘[Thanks to ‘Toosie Slide’], Drake tallies his 50th cumulative week atop the Hot 100. He’s the fifth artist, and first solo male, to reach the milestone.
