Drake Matches Mariah Carey Hot 100 Record / Makes History As ‘Toosie Slide’ Debuts at #1

Published: Monday 13th Apr 2020 by Rashad

Just days after we first reported Drake‘s latest single, ‘Toosie Slide,’ was set to slide to #1 on the Hot 100 (click here to read), Billboard has officially unveiled news the tune has unseated his one-time rival, fellow Canadian hitmaker The Weeknd, from the tally’s top spot.

Fueled by a Tik Tok viral dance craze, the commercial response to ‘Slide’ lands Drizzy in the history books again. Details inside:

Billboard reports:

“Drake becomes the first male artist, and second act overall, to have debuted three songs at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, as his new single, “Toosie Slide,” rolls in at the top spot.

Drake matches Mariah Carey, who achieved three No. 1 debuts on the Hot 100 in 1995-97.”

*****

‘Slide’ is the 7th chart-topper of Drake’s career and first since reigning for a whopping 10 weeks with ‘In My Feelings’ in 2018.  Like ‘Slide,’ ‘Feelings’ success was also fueled by a viral social media challenge.

It’s also of special note the song’s arrival to the Hot 100’s summit extends his record for the most #1s among rappers, most top 10 singles among male acts (37 total), most top 40 hits among all artists (101 total), and most Hot 100 entries among all artist (209 total).

    Ew
    ???????

    This is a song nobody will remember next year.

    Making a song just to start a dance challenge on tiktok is silly and lazy as f****.

    This reminds me of ringtone rappers making songs to be used as ringtones.

        Cuase of f*** Tik Tok. F*** the charts and f*** Drake the snake

  8. tyty April 13, 2020

    A “rapper” of his calibar should not be making tik tok or viral songs just to chase a hit. Guess he reached his peak artistically so desperate times call for desperate measures.

  9. Theman April 13, 2020

    This song is garbage. He geared this song toward tiktok just for a hit.

  10. PinotNoir April 13, 2020

    Dig his inner child coming out to play, but this shouldn’t be n°1. #TooTikToky But then, he knows he appeals to returds.

  11. 2bad2bme April 13, 2020

    This goes to show you nothing is taken serious anymore. Popular music isn’t about quality. SMH!

  12. Hmmm… April 13, 2020

    The song is trash. Making music purely to have a bunch of 15 year olds on Tik Tok promote it for the charts?? Lmao, he’s a joke. And the sad thing is, he literally did not need this.

  13. Re April 14, 2020

    I’m tired of. I’m tired of people making him rich while we are poor. I wish america would wake up and realize we are making these fools rich. The white community dont care the will make them rich but the black community put that money towards your future. Your wealth. These moto’s will continue to be millionaires and billionaires.

  14. I Hate Blllacck n Whyyyte bitchezz April 14, 2020

    Whitney Houston had Waiting to Exhale out in 1995…….the only reason Mariah has the 3 entries ….from 95 to 97

    • I Hate Blllacck n Whyyyte bitchezz April 14, 2020

      Whitney was going into Film waiting to exhale was big for her from 1995 to 1997….
