You can’t keep Drake down for long on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. His latest hit “Nice for What” has rebounded yet again, claiming the lead position for the seventh nonconsecutive week on the chart dated June 23. Over the course of his career Drake has now spent 38 weeks on top, more than Michael Jackson. Only Usher has spent more time in first place among solo male artists (47 weeks). See who else made the top 10 on this week’s singles chart in the video above.
“Nice for What” debuted at number-one and initially stayed there for four weeks. Then it was replaced by Childish Gambino‘s “This is America,” which stayed on top for two weeks before Drake took back to top slot. Two weeks after that Post Malone‘s “Psycho” wrestled number-one away from him, but after just one week “Psycho” has dropped back down to number-two.
Meanwhile, Cardi B holds on to third place for the second week with “I Like It” featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin. And she’s in fifth place too as a featured artist on Maroon 5‘s “Girls Like You.” Less than a year since she broke out with her chart-topping “Bodak Yellow” Cardi B has already accumulated a total of five top-five singles.
The week’s biggest streaming song is “Lucid Dreams” by 19-year-old Chicago rapper Juice WRLD, which has 38.8 million online listens and consequently gets a boost on the Hot 100, rising from number-nine to number-six. So he’s knocking on the door to the top-five. But Drake certainly isn’t making it easy for anyone to reach the summit as he’s been fiercely guarding that position all year.
