Drake Surpasses Jay-Z For Most No. 1 Singles on Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Charts
Well, Drake just did take the throne in one hip-hop category, surpassing Jay-Z for the most No. 1 singles on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop charts.
Drizzy accomplished the feat, when 2 Chainz’s single “No Lie,” a song on which Drake lends the assist, recently went gold. That gave Drake his tenth No. 1 hit, beating out Jay-Z, who has nine chart-topping singles since first being listed on the charts back in 1995.
“Best I Ever Had,” “Forever,” “Over,” “Fancy,” “Headlines,” and “The Motto” are amongst the Toronto rhymer’s No. 1 singles, while Timbaland’s “Say Something,” Trey Song’z “I Invented Sex,” Lil Wayne’s “Right Above It,” Rick Ross’s “Aston Martin Music,” and Nicki Minaj’s “Moment 4 Life” are just a few of the No. 1 singles that Drizzy has been featured on.
With the accomplishment, Drake becomes the titleholder of both Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop chart and Rap chart.—XXL Staff
