It feels like Drake’s breaking a Billboard chart record every week at this point. On the heels of dominating the Hot 100’s Top 3, Billboard announced earlier this week the Toronto legend is the only artist to appear on their Artist 100 chart every week since its 2014 launch.
“@billboard launched its #Artist100 chart on July 19, 2014—350 weeks ago,” the Billboard Charts’ Twitter account read. “@Drake is the only artist who has spent all 350 weeks on the chart.”

The Artist 100 chart combines an artist’s performance on the Hot 100, Billboard 200 and Social 50 for a given week as a metric. Following his Scary Hours 2 project, it’s no surprise Drake rose to the top once again to snatch the No. 1 spot for the 32nd time. He only trails Taylor Swift in weeks at the apex.
With Scary Hours 2, Drake made history by becoming the first artist to ever debut in the top three slots of the Hot 100. He joined Ariana Grande and The Beatles as the only acts to accomplish the historic feat.

Drake celebrated his accomplishment with friends and family on Monday night (March 15) and made sure to link with Bow Wow and give him the proper credit for inspiring him to pursue music.
“I had to link with Wizzle,” he says in the clip. “Everybody wants to have drinks and everybody wants to celebrate and turn up and, you know, I just had to see Wizzle. I had to see Wizzle in person. If it wasn’t for you, there wouldn’t be no me. That’s why — you know the rest, that’s why I’mma rock with y’all forever more.”
