Drake Nabs First No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 Hit as Solo Artist With ‘One Dance’


Official Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 May 21 2016 Countdown

Drake is celebrating his Views from the top of the Billboard 200 chart and he’s also the lead artist on the Billboard Hot 100 tally with “One Dance.”

This is the Toronto rapper first No. 1 hit as a solo artist. The chart-topping feat puts him alongside the Chainsmokers, Daya, Calvin Harris and his longtime love and collaborator, Rihanna. As a solo artist, Drake had previously peaked as high as No. 2 twice: with his debut hit “Best I Ever Had” in 2009 and “Hotline Bling” last year.

“Dance” becomes Drake’s 16th No. 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The song also dethrones Desiigner two-week reign at the top spot with “Panda.”

As we previously reported, Drizzy’s Views topped the Billboard 200 chart moving 851,000 copies last week and over one million copies to date, making him the top-selling artist of 2016. “One million sold in one week. I am beyond grateful for this milestone,” he told his fans. “Thank you for listening.”
