Drake Becomes First Male Artist To Top Billboard 200 & Hot 100 For Three Weeks Since 50 Cent
Last week Drake found his name next to Eminem in the record books thanks to his Views albums landing in the top spot on the Billboard 200 album chart for four weeks in a row. Now the Toronto native has etched his named in history besides Em’s protegé 50 Cent.
Views is once again the top album in the country, and Drake’s “One Dance” rules the Hot 100 chart too.
That makes three consecutive weeks that the OVO Sound leader has sat in the pole position for the Billboard 200 and the Hot 100. 50 Cent was the last male artist to accomplish that feat.
The G-Unit front man’s single “Candy Shop” and his second studio album The Massacre were concurrent chart toppers for the six straight weeks in 2005.
Adele also managed to dominate the Billboard 200 and the Hot 100 for six straight weeks. She was the last artist to have at least 3 weeks at #1 for both charts when “Hello” and 25 had a six-week simultaneous run in December 2015 – January 2016.
