Drake appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for eight straight years, starting with his Grammy-nominated single, “Best I Ever Had.”
The one-man hit parade holds the record for the solo artist with the most career entries into the Hot 100, and also set a new bar when More Life helped him get 24 songs on the chart at the same time.
In 2016, he also tied Michael Jackson and The Monkees in the #2 spot for most consecutive weeks at the top of the Hot 100 and the Billboard 200 albums chart.
