Drake Makes US Chart History...Again

By FYI Staff

Drake has made US chart history by becoming the first artist to land 29 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in the same calendar year.


The rapper's “In My Feelings” hit has held supreme for 10 weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100 countdown, taking his tally for the year - from three number ones - to 29 weeks, breaking a tie with Usher, who scored 28 chart-topping weeks in 2004.

Drake has also become the first soloist - and the second act ever - to spend at least 10 weeks at number one with three tracks – “In My Feelings,” “God's Plan” and 2016 hit “One Dance.” Boyz II Men are the only other act to achieve the feat, Billboard reports.

The Canadian has now spent a total of 49 weeks at number one on the Hot 100 and is only one more week away from tying Boyz II Men for fourth on the all-time list, headed by Mariah Carey with 79.

Billboard offers an update of the acts to spend the most time at No. 1 in any January-December period (with Drake leading in 29 of the 39 chart weeks so far in 2018).

'When I'm Back in Toronto': The Beaches Put Their Spin on Djo's 'End of Beginning'

The Canadian quartet turn the viral alt-rock song into a Springsteen-esque '80s ballad for Australian broadcaster Triple J's Like a Version series.

Canadian pop rockers The Beaches stopped by the Triple J studio in Sydney, Australia to record their take on a viral hit.

For the popular cover series Like a Version the band decided to try on "End of Beginning" by Djo, a nostalgic alt rock tune that hit No. 1 on the Billboard TikTok Top 50 in February. They bring their reverb-heavy '80s sound to the track, giving it a more anthemic edge. On the bridge, lead singer Jordan Miller taps into a Springsteen-ian energy as she sings the refrain: "you take the man out of the city / not the city out the man."
