Drake passes Jay-Z for most No. 1 R&B/Hip-Hop hits | Music News

Move over Jay-Z, there’s a new man on the throne now.

With his feature appearance on 2 Chainz‘ single “No Lie,” Young Money MC Drake becomes the rapper with the most trips to the top of Billboard’s Hip-Hop/R&B Songs chart.

The song’s ascension to the chart’s apex this week gives Drake his 10th appearance at No. 1, surpassing the record Jay set last November when “N–gas In Paris” became his ninth chart-topper.

Of Drake’s 10 leaders, seven of the songs have been guest appearances alongside the likes of Trey Songz, Nicki Minaj and Timbaland. Contrarily, Jay’s featured artist-to-lead billing ratio is nearly 1:1, as his nine trips to the top include only five as the guest artist.

The Canadian rapper has moved decidedly quicker than his Brooklyn counterpart, though, taking only slightly over three years to accumulate his 10 No. 1s while Jay took over a decade to gather nine.
