Drake's 'Scorpion' Songs Have Spent 29 Weeks Atop the Hot 100, Breaking The Black Eyed Peas & Usher's Records


Drake provides one other honor as “In My Feelings” reigns for a 10th week.

As Drake tops the Streets Talkin Hot 100 for a 10th week with "In My Feelings," and a record-breaking 29th week in 2018, he provides one other historic feat to his resume: His Scorpion album turns into the primary set to have its singles spend a new-record 29 cumulative weeks atop the chart.

Let's run this down: The three Hot 100 leaders from Scorpion up to now, "God's Plan" (11 weeks on prime), "Nice for What" (eight) and "Feelings" (10), mix to offer the album's singles a complete of 29 weeks atop the Hot 100. That haul overtakes the earlier benchmark set by Usher's Confessions and The Black Eyed Peas' The E.N.D., each of which clocked 28 weeks amongst their No. 1 singles.

Confessions achieved its 28-week whole from 4 singles in 2004: "Yeah!," that includes Lil Jon & Ludacris (12 weeks), "Burn" (eight), "Confessions Part II," (two) and "My Boo," with Alicia Keys (six). The Peas equaled the mark by way of the trio of "Boom Boom Pow" (12 weeks), "I Gotta Feeling" (14) and "Imma Be" (two) in 2009-10.

With Scorpion now on the prime of the category, right here's a take a look at the albums whose songs have logged at the least 20 weeks atop the Hot 100. Notably, the highest performers have all achieved the feat following the adoption of Nielsen Music knowledge to energy the Hot 100 in 1991, as, since then, songs have averaged longer chart runs and extra time at No. 1.
