Drake Breaks Eight-Year Streak on Billboard Hot 100
For the first time in eight years — or, to be more specific, 430 weeks — Drake does not have a song or a feature on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The rapper has held at least one spot on the chart ever since his 2009 debut “Best I Ever Had.” His streak breaks the record by far, easily besting every other artist who tried to come close.
Drake has had three number one singles on the Hot 100. The last songs to leave the chart, as of the week dated Aug. 19, were “Passionfruit,” last ranked at number 81 and “Signs” at an even 100.
We bid you farewell, Drake. Maybe when we see you on the charts again, you’ll be wearing less and going out more. We’d be happy for you if you were.
