Breaking Records!


Billboard Hot 100 and Hot 200 charts with the single “One Dance” and the album “Views” by Drake have literally gone off the charts. Drake makes history for the first time as the second male artist to have a No. 1 song and album in the country for seven weeks! Who can guess the first to do it?

Drake at Toronto Raptors

The King of Pop! Yes, that is right everyone Drake has managed to tie with Michael Jackson. He was the only other male artist to the achieve the same feat back in 1983 with the singles “Billie Jean” and “Thriller”. The Beatles and Whitney Houston are the only two other acts in the chart’s history.


Now, I know that people have mixed feelings about him breaking this record and i am one of them. Personally, I don’t think that this is necessarily the album that should have broke this record. I think that his album “Take Care” is much much better but then again I do understand that that album wasn’t going to hit the charts like that because of when it came out, he was a new artist.

I am proud of his accomplishments but let me just say that the ratings and measurements for people to stay on charts like these have definitely changed.
