In late August, Drake tied the Black Eyed Peas for the second-most weeks at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in a calendar year. Now, he has matched Usher for the most total weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 among solo males, as "In My Feelings" sits atop the chart for an eighth week. This is the 47th week in his career that he's had a No. 1 single. Mariah Carey leads the overall list with 79 total weeks at No. 1, followed by Rihanna with 60 and The Beatles with 59.
As Billboard points out, this is Drake's 27th week at No. 1 in 2018, moving him one week closer to Usher's single-year record of 28 weeks in 2004.
"In My Feelings" sits at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart as well with 50.5 million U.S. streams. The viral single previously broke the weekly streaming record with 116.2 million streams during the week ending on July 28.
It has been a big year for hip-hop in general. Billboard reports that rap songs have now been No. 1 for 32 consecutive weeks. In addition to Drake's "In My Feelings," "Nice For What," and "God's Plan," the streak also features Childish Gambino's "This Is America," Post Malone's "Psycho," XXXTentacion's "Sad!" and Cardi B's "I Like It."
Elsewhere on this week's Hot 100, Maroon 5's "Girls Like You" featuring Cardi B sits at No. 2, and Cardi B's "I Like It" featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin holds at No. 3. See more of the list on Billboard.
