Drake Sets New Billboard Record With “Believe Me,” Dethroning Usher (VIDEO)
He may say he "started from the bottom," but Drake is now on top! The Canadian rapper guest-stars in Lil Wayne's song "Believe Me," and he has broken a new Billboard record now that the track holds the No. 1 slot on the publication's R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Chart.
Now, Drake is the artist with the most No. 1 songs on that chart, as "Believe Me" is his 14th song to nab the top spot. Per MTV News, He just bumped off Usher, who has 13. And Lil Wayne himself comes in third place, with 10.
It's not the first time that Mr. October's Very Own broke a Billboard record. He's also the artist with the most No.1 songs on the Hot Rap Songs chart — with 10 — and on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs — with 12 tunes!
Drake can add this latest accolade to his collection of eight BET Awards, ten BET Hip Hop Awards, and one Grammy.
And we can only imagine how much further the 27-year-old will increase his Billboard lead with the release of his upcoming album, Views from the 6, which he announced in June.
