Drake has been one of the most successful artists in music past decade who has broken chart records left and right . We ’ ve lost count by now .
In May this year , Drake became the first artist in history to remain on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for eight continuous years , a run that goes back to his chart debut on May 23 , 2009. That ’ s when he entered the Billboard Hot 100 at number 92 with his debut single ‘ Best I Ever Had’ , later going all the way up to number 2 at its peak . This week (ending August 13 ) is the first time since 2009 that Drake is absent from the prestigious chart.
This ends a massive 430- week long stretch since his debut on May 23 , 2009 . Since the debut of ‘ Best I ever Had’ , the Toronto superstar has maintained a record Hot 100 attendance ,appearing in at least one lead or featured role on each weekly chart since then . It is pretty evident that Drizzy did not fully promote his latest project More Life . Perhaps a music video or two for the more popular songs on the album would have extended his stretch a little bit . Is this an end of the invincible run? Tell us what you think in the comments section .
In March this year , Drake had passed his Young Money label head Lil Wayne for the most charted titles among solo artists ( 154) in the Billboard Hot 100’ s 58 – year history .
