Chart Check [Hot 100]: Drake Is First Solo Male Act To Spend 50 Career Weeks at #1

Published: Wednesday 15th Apr 2020 by Rashad

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.

Most Weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100
82, Mariah Carey
60, Rihanna
59, The Beatles
50, Boyz II Men
50, Drake

Drake pads his lead for the most weeks at No. 1 among male soloists over Usher, who ranks second in the category (and sixth overall) with 47 frames on top.’

    Not country singer gabby barrett outpeaking normani’s motivation.

    Gabby barrett- I hope (number 20)
    A country solo song did that.
    She has no album
    No hype, no industry support, no celebrity shout outs.
    Talent will always win

    Post Malone low-key dominating charts, I swear his always in the top 10 with any given single. Yikes camilla really only ever has a hit single when it’s featuring somebody? What kind of solo act\ pop star can’t have solo hits ??

    Good for him but that says a lot about the current state/trends of music.
    Most of his songs won’t be remembered as classics.

  10. Just Sayin’ April 15, 2020

    All thanks to Tik Tok. The song is absolute trash.

  11. Blabla bla April 16, 2020
