The view from the top for Drake just keeps getting better as the rapper has finally secured his first No. 1 song as a lead artist.

Just days after learning that his fourth studio album, Views, debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 chart, Drake saw his single “One Dance” take the No. 1 spot on Billboard‘s Hot 100, a feat that has somehow eluded him his whole career.

The Grammy-winning rapper has reached the top spot two times previously, but only as a featured artist on Rihanna’s songs “Work” and “What’s My Name?” Last year, “Hotline Bling” reached No. 2 on the charts, prompting Drake to take to his Instagram to share how much a No. 1 hit would mean to him.


Drake made Hot 100 history by setting the record for most songs concurrently on the chart — with 20 tracks. Views also set the record for most opening-week streams with more than 245 million.
