Drake Ties Taylor Swift For Overall Billboard Record
Billboard has three major charts now.
Hot 100 [singles]. Billboard 200 [albums], and Artist 100, which blends data measuring album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction.
For the seventh non-consecutive week, Drake has topped them all. That ties chart queen Taylor Swift for the most weeks at number one on all three charts . (The Artist 100 chart launched in 2014)
Drake will have a chance to break the tie with Swift next week, as VIEWS is projected to lead the Billboard 200 for the ninth straight week.
That means he will probably snag number one on the Artist 100 chart too, and the question will be whether ‘One Dance’ can stay atop the Hot 100.
If it can, Drake will have yet another Billboard record all to himself.
