Toronto’s iconic emcee and rap mogul Drake, born Aubrey Graham, has matched Michael Jackson’s Billboard Hot 100 Record For Most #1 Entries by a male artist. Reportedly, “First Person Shooter” – the 6th rap record on Drake’s 8th studio album “For All The Dogs” – has become the rapper’s 13th #1 entry on Billboard Hot 100.
Legendary Pop singer Michael Jackson set the record for most #1s by a male solo artist in 1995 with “You Are Not Alone.” Drake and Michael Jackson now share the title of 4th-most number 1 songs on Billboard Hot 100.
As per Pitchfork, The Beatles hold the overall record with 20, followed by Mariah Carey with 19 and Rihanna with 14.
For Cole, the fiery record serves as his first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 too. Besides “First Person Shooter”, IDGAF featuring Yeat, “Virginia Beach”, “Calling For You” featuring 21 Savage, “Daylight” and “Fear of Heights” have cracked top ten.
Last year, Drake matched Jay-Z’s historic record for the highest number of top-charting LPs on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop albums with 14 such entries.
Elsewhere, “For All The Dogs” LP has become Drake’s 13th No. 1 Album on Billboard Top 200 too.
