Drake Ties Michael Jackson’s Record With ‘Views’ & ‘One Dance’

  • By Olamide Onipede


Drake’s Wizkid and Kyla-assisted hit “One Dance” remains No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for an eighth non-consecutive week. As reported yesterday, Views also sits atop the Billboard 200, marking its ninth consecutive week in that spot.

This puts the 6 God up there with Michael Jackson. Thanks to those distinctions, he ties MJ for “the longest-ever simultaneous domination” of both charts by a male artist, as per Billboard.

The records continue to pile up for Drake. With seven consecutive weeks atop the Hot 100, Drake also ties for “the longest consecutive control of the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously among males.” This places him alongside the King of Pop, who did that in 1983 with “Billie Jean” and Thriller.

The last time any artist was able to achieve this feat was 1992-93 when Whitney Houston held 12 straight weeks at the top of the Hot 100 with “I Will Always Love You” and the Billboard 200 with The Bodyguard soundtrack.

Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” remains at No. 2 on the chart, Desiigner nabs the No. 4 slot with “Panda,” and Calvin Harris’ Rihanna-assisted “This Is What You Came For” rounds out the top 5. See the rest of this week’s top 10 below.
