Drake Surpasses Michael Jackson On Billboard

There’s no doubt that Michael Jackson still stands as one of the greatest artists of all time, but it's looking like Drake, a.k.a The 6 God, may be taking on the throne as a rap legend. According to Billboard, the rapper’s hit ‘Nice For What’ returned this week as No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart, which was just the push he needed to pass Michael Jackson among artists with the most weeks at the Hot 100’s summit. This is the single’s 7th week in the row at the top of the chart. However, this isn’t much of a surprise to us. Over the years, Drake has been known to continuously break Billboard records. This year alone, the artist passed icons like Bruno Mars, Jay-Z, Paul McCartney and Adele for most weeks atop Billboard’s Hot 100-- and continues to climb to the top. 

Drake currently stands at No. 7 for artist’s with the most weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 with stars like Beyonce, Usher, Boyz II Men, The Beatles, Rihanna and Mariah Carey still ahead of him.
