Drake’s viral hit “In My Feelings” has been No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 list for ten weeks in a row, passing Usher for the most top hits in a single year.

According to Billboard, Drake has become the first male solo artist with three songs to be No. 1 in the Hot 100 for at least 10 weeks each. Drake’s top three hits in the past include “In My Feelings,” “God’s Plan,” and “One Dance.”

“In My Feelings” set the weekly streaming record with 116.2 million streams and no doubt the viral dance challenge helped boost streams as well.

Drake has now led the Hot 100 list for 29 weeks in a row this year, which breaks the previous record made by Usher. His successful Scorpion album created many hits this year. Drake has two songs that have led in the Hot 100 this year, which includes “God’s Plan.” This makes him the first soloist to do so.

Here are the last 10 artists that have led the charts:

Drake – 29 weeks in 2018

The Black Eyed Peas – 26 weeks in 2009
