Drake notches his 36th week atop the ‘Billboard’ Artist 100 chart

Drake is back on top of the Billboard Artist 100, thanks to his number-one album Certified Lover Boy.

This now marks Drizzy’s 36th week leading the chart, the second-most out of any other artist.  The act he has to beat is Taylor Swift, who boasts 49 weeks at the top.

The Artist 100 chart, which has only been around for seven years, ranks musical acts based on interaction through social media, streaming, radio play and sales.

The “What’s Next” artist also dominates several other charts this week, including the Billboard 200 albums chart for a fourth non-consecutive week.  CLB is the rapper’s third album to maintain the top spot a full month, following Scorpion and Views, which were respectively released in 2018 and 2016.

Views has spent the most weeks at number one, with 13, while Scorpion touts five.

Aside from the Billboard 200, Drake is also dominating the Hot 100, with “Way 2 Sexy” leading the pack at number five. 

In all, seven of Drake’s songs are featured on the Artist 100 chart this week, the most out of any other artist. Behind “Way 2 Sexy” is “Knife Talk,” featuring 21 Savage and Project Pat at number 14; “Girls Want Girls,” featuring Lil Baby, at 22; “Fair Trade” with Travis Scott at 39; “No Friends in the Industry” in 74th; “Champagne Party” at 77; and “In the Bible,” which features Lil Durk and Giveon, at number 83.
