After all the ‘FIRE & Brimstone ‘ and much CONTROVERSY, Lil’ Nas X is back on TOP!!
The ‘Old Town Road’ rapper’s latest hit, ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name) debuts atop Billboard 100 becoming his second No. 1 since “Old Town Road” reigned for a record 19 weeks in 2019.
“Montero” drew 46.9 million U.S. streams and sold 21,000 downloads in the week ending April 1. The song was accompanied by a controversial video that had a lot of CRITICS up in arms, that has over 95 million views on YouTube to date!
It was a heated race to see who would debut at # 1 atop Billboard 100… The ‘battle’ was between the Beyonce-assisted remix to ‘Savage’ by Meg Thee Stallion and the Nicki Minaj-assisted ‘Say So’ by Doja Cat. Doja & Nicki came out on top marking the 1st number for BOTH!
Drake continues to set the BAR high for himself and other artists that’s TOPPING the Billboard charts. Drake has broken yet another record–this time it is for most weeks at #1.
With Drake’s HUGE HIT, “Nice For What” spending its second week at No. 1, he now has now racked up a total of 33 total weeks with songs atop Billboard Hot 100 chart. Drake has successfully surpassed Bruno Mars as the most of any male artist this decade.
The 31-year-old has had six chart-topping hits over the course of his career dating back to 2010 when Rihanna’s “What’s My Name” took the No. 1 spot. Drake would then go on to achieve the TOP SPOT as a solo artist for the first time in 2016 with VIEWS’ “One Dance” and then again with Rihanna’s “Work” spending time at the top. He later returned this year with the previously mentioned “God’s Plan” and “Nice For What” giving him a combined 13 weeks at No. 1 in 2018.
SEEMS LIKE everything Drake DROPS turns to BILLBOARD MAGIC! Congrats to DRIZZY!!
