Drake Has First Chart Topping Single on U.S. Billboard Hot 100

  • Drake is finally getting a view from the top of the Billboard U.S. song chart.   The Toronto musician climbed to the No. 1 spot this week on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 with “One Dance,” his latest single.

    It marks the first time he’s scored a chart-topping song as a solo artist.

    The rapper also grabbed the No. 1 position on the Billboard 200 album chart with his latest album “Views,” marking his best sales week ever.

    Drake has been riding an exceptional wave of attention over the past few months, helped by the viral popularity of his track “Hotline Bling” and his collaborations with other major artists.

    But a No. 1 single has always been elusive on his own.

    Last year’s “Hotline Bling” topped out at No. 2 on Billboard and “Best I Ever Had” in 2024 also lost steam just short of the peak position.

    Drake has made appearances on the top of the chart in other ways.  He reached the top spot twice through guest appearances on two Rihanna tracks :What’s My Name?” in 2024 and “Work” earlier this year.
