Drake's new single, "Toosie Slide," is taking over.
On Monday (April 13), Billboard announced that Drizzy's dance record debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, dethroning The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights," which spent two weeks at the top spot. This latest accomplishment is a historic moment for Drake as he has become the first male artist to debut three No. 1 songs on the Hot 100 chart: "God's Plan," "Nice for What" and "Toosie Slide."
Although three of Drizzy's tracks have debuted at the top spot, the OVO rapper is on his seventh Hot 100 No. 1 record, thanks to "Toosie Slide." Rihanna's "What's My Name?" featuring Drake (2010), RiRi's "Work," which also features Drake (2016), "One Dance," featuring WizKid and Kyla (2016), "God's Plan" (2018), "Nice for What" (2018) and "In My Feelings" (2018) have all landed at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Drake has also spent 50 consecutive weeks at the top of the chart.
Drizzy has surpassed his peers with the most No. 1 records. Billboard reports that the rapper's new feat pushes him ahead of Diddy, Eminem and Ludacris, who each have five Hot 100 No. 1 records. "Toosie Slide" is also Drizzy's 37th song in the top 10.
The rapper dropped "Toosie Slide" on April 3, and it quickly catapulted to No. 1 on Billboard's Streaming Songs chart. The record also debuted at No. 3 on the Digital Song Sales chart. Nielsen Music reports that the Toronto native's new single moved 25,000 units by April 9, just six days after the song was released.
