Drake number one chart

Drake finally tops Billboard chart with One Dance

Drake has finally topped the Billboard 100 as a lead artist for VIEWS' single "One Dance." He's been in this territory before but Hotline Bling never got higher than second spot after being released exclusively on Apple Music.

Previous number one hits for Drizzy came in support of Rihanna on tracks like "What's My Name?" (2012) and "Work" (2016). It's hard to believe that a song like "Hold on, We're Coming Home" didn't top the charts back in 2013, but it's highest position was fourth, even if it did make Pitchfork positively gush.

Critics have been less than dazzled by the VIEWS album as a whole, but I suspect he'll challenge for the top of the charts again with upcoming singles i"Controlla," "With You," and the Rihanna-supported "Too Good."
