Billboard Hot 100: Drake achieves his longest-running number-one hit, while The Weeknd debuts in top 10

Drake continues his run at number-one on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. He’s on top with “God’s Plan” for the 11th consecutive week after the song debuted in the top spot back in February. To date the song has never not been number-one, and now it’s Drake’s longest-running chart-topper in Hot 100 history, officially surpassing “One Dance” featuring Wizkid and Kyla, which spent 10 weeks on top in 2016. But Drake isn’t content with just one entry in the top-10 — this week, he has three.

“God’s Plan” is one of only two dozen songs ever to spend 11 weeks or more at number-one. Meanwhile, Drake also rises back to number-five as a featured artist on BlocBoy JB‘s “Look Alive,” matching that song’s previous peak position. And then Drake moved another song into the top-10, again as a featured artist: “Walk It Talk It,” his collaboration with Migos, moves up five spots to number-10. This is the first time Drake has ever had three songs in the top-10 at the same time; only 15 other artists have ever accomplished that feat.

The other big development in the top-10 is the number-four debut for The Weeknd with “Call Out My Name” from his new six-track EP “My Beautiful Melancholy,” which simultaneously debuted at number-one on the Billboard 200 albums chart. This is the highest debut yet for The Weeknd, and his eighth top-10 overall. To date he has had three number-one hits: “The Hills” (2015), “Can’t Feel My Face” (2015) and “Starboy” (2016). Could “Call Out” soon become his fourth, or will “God’s Plan” remain immovable in the weeks to come?
