Drake Keeps Achieving Higher Heights
Nowadays, it seems like Drake is breaking music records every week at this point. On the heels of dominating the Hot 100’s Top 3, Billboard announced earlier this week that the rapper is the only artist to appear on their Artist 100 chart every week since its 2014 launch.
“@billboard launched its #Artist100 chart on July 19, 2014—350 weeks ago,” the Billboard Charts’ Twitter account read. “@Drake is the only artist who has spent all 350 weeks on the chart.”
How to Qualify
The Artist 100 chart combines an artist’s performance on the Hot 100, Billboard 200 and Social 50 for a given week as a metric. Following his Scary Hours 2 project, it’s no surprise Drake rose to the top once again to snatch the No. 1 spot for the 32nd time. He only trails Taylor Swift in weeks at the apex.
Drake Celebrates, Pays Respects to Bow Wow
With Scary Hours 2, Drake made history by reaching the bar as the first artist to ever debut in the top three slots of the Hot 100. He joined Ariana Grande and The Beatles as the only artists to accomplish the historic feat.
Drake celebrated his accomplishment with friends and family on Monday night. Moreover, he paid homage home for inspiring him to pursue music.
I had to link with Wizzle,” he says in the clip. “Everybody wants to have drinks and everybody wants to celebrate and turn up and, you know, I just had to see Wizzle. I had to see Wizzle in person. If it wasn’t for you, there wouldn’t be no me. That’s why — you know the rest, that’s why I’mma rock with y’all forever more.”
The world has to brace itself for what Drake has in store next. Until then, big ups to the 6 God.
