News: Drake Beats Jay-Z For Most Number 1’s On Billboard
Drake is now the rapper with the most number 1’s on Billboard’s Hip-Hop/R&B chart. The ascension of “No Lie” to number 1 gave Drake his 10th song on Billboard’s top spot. Jay-Z held the record at 9 with his latest chart topper being “Niggas In Paris.”
Drake beat Jay-Z in just three years, one month and three weeks. “Best I Ever Had” was Drake’s first single to top the Hip-Hop/R&B chart. While Jay’s first song to claim the top spot was Mariah Carey’s “Heartbreaker” in 1999. In total, 12 years and one month passed from Jay’s 1st #1 to his 9th #1. But Jigga still holds the record for most number one (12) albums on Billboard.
