Drake Surpasses Jay-Z For Most No. 1 Singles on Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Charts

Drake proclaimed, “I’m just feeling the throne is for the taking, watch me take it,” back on DJ Khaled’s summer smash of last year, “I’m On One.”

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
