Drake’s one dance – song of the summer?

I cannot deny “One dance” is one of the best songs this summer without a doubt. Kyla’s voice on top of drake’s subtle rapping tones creates one of the most memorable collaborations in recent years. Billboard have written a fantastic article about it, please follow this link to read it bit.ly/2cO3Sj4

They had a few amazing stats about the song;

“One Dance” and Views combined to give Drake the longest control, among solo males, of both the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously with one song and one album: nine weeks. Drake passed Michael Jackson’s seven-week run of “Billie Jean” and Thriller leading both lists at the same time in 1983. Among all artists, Drake’s total is second only to the Whitney Houston’s 12-week stretch in 1992-93, which the late legend earned thanks to “I Will Always Love You” and the soundtrack to The Bodyguard.

And about the great man himself;

Drake has led the Billboard Artist 100 chart for 21 weeks overall, the most among males. That’s second overall only to Taylor Swift’s 31 weeks on top (dating to the chart’s July 2014 inception).

•  Drake’s album Views has spent 12 total weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, the most time in charge for an album by a male artist since Billy Ray Cyrus’ Some Gave All logged 17 weeks at No. 1 in 1992.

Drake has linked the most consecutive weeks in the Hot 100’s top 10 among all male artists: 51 (and counting!), as of the Sept. 17 chart. Only Katy Perry, with 69 straight weeks in the top 10 in 2010-11, has scored a longer streak.

So give the billboard article a read, its pretty interesting.
