Drake has achieved an impressive feat in the music industry, becoming the rapper with the most No. 1 hits on the Hot 100. The Canadian artist has 11 No. 1 hits, which ties him with Whitney Houston for the seventh-most among all artists. The Beatles lead the pack with 20 No. 1 hits, followed by Mariah Carey (19), Rihanna (14), Michael Jackson (13), The Supremes and Madonna (12 each).
Drake’s first No. 1 hit was “One Dance” in 2016, which spent 10 weeks at the top of the chart. Since then, he has gone on to have a total of 11 No. 1 hits, including “God’s Plan,” “Nice for What,” “In My Feelings,” and “What’s My Name?” with Rihanna. He also has a number of collaborations with other artists that have reached the top spot, such as “Work” with Rihanna, “No Guidance” with Chris Brown, and “What’s Next” with Lil Durk.
Drake’s success on the Hot 100 is a testament to his longevity in the music industry. He has been releasing music since 2010 and has consistently been able to stay relevant in the ever-changing music landscape. His ability to adapt to different genres and collaborate with other artists has allowed him to remain one of the most popular artists in the world.
Drake’s 11 No. 1 hits on the Hot 100 are an impressive feat, and it’s likely that he will continue to add to that number in the future. With his continued success, he could eventually surpass Whitney Houston and become the sixth-most successful artist on the chart. Only time will tell if Drake can achieve this feat, but one thing is for sure: he has cemented his place as one of the most successful artists of all time.
