With a 10th week at the top the Hot 100 (and ninth consecutively), “One Dance,” released on Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records, became the 32nd No. 1 in the Hot 100’s history to reign for at least 10 weeks.
1,055 No. 1s have led the Hot 100 since the chart launched in 1958, so “One Dance” is in the top 3 percent of the longest-commanding hits of all-time.
Drake’s “One Dance” is the longest-leading Hot 100 No. 1 since Adele’s “Hello” (the lead single from 25), which ruled for 10 weeks in November-January.
The song joined the exclusive club of singles that have reigned for double-digit weeks. It also passed Rihanna’s “Work,” featuring Drake, as both 2016’s and Drake’s longest-leading No. 1.
The writer of the much talked about song, WizKid has received honours from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) for his efforts and creativity added to the song in making it number.In excitement, Wizkid shared a plaque saying:
“This came in last night! Big up my bro @champagnepapi for letting me work on this!! More Drake x Wizkid on the way!!”
