Drake Gets His First Billboard Number 1 – In what has certainly been a long time coming, rapper Drake has finally gotten his first Billboard number 1.
Drake has Filipino singer Kyla and Nigeria’s very own Wizkid to thank for this milestone, as the trio combined to make One Dance, which displaced Desiigner‘s Panda to sit atop the Billboard Hot 100. It’s Drake’s first number one as a lead artiste, as he’d been at the top as a featured artiste before with Rihanna’s What’s My Name and Work.
Before One Dance, Drake’s previous peak was the number two spot, which Best I Ever Had and Hotline Bling both reached.
The success isn’t limited to the song as Drake’s entire new album, Views, is doing well too. The album sold over 1 million copies in its first week, and set a record most streams in a week.
