Drake Is First Act to Hold Streaming Songs Chart’s Top Three More Than Once

Drake last held the top three on Streaming Songs, which began in 2013, on the July 14, 2018, tally, with “Nonstop,” “In My Feelings” and “I’m Upset.” While the former two were debuts, the latter was not, making the March 20 ranking Drake’s first in which he scored the entire top three with debuts.

Only three other artists have held the top three on Streaming Songs in a single week: Lil Wayne (Oct. 13, 2018; “Mona Lisa,” featuring Kendrick Lamar, “Don’t Cry,” featuring Xxxtentacion, and “Let It Fly,” featuring Travis Scott); Ariana Grande (Feb 23, 2019; “7 Rings,” “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” and “Thank U, Next”); and DaBaby (July 18, 2020; “Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch, Pop Smoke’s “For the Night,” on which he’s featured with Lil Baby, and Jack Harlow’s “Whats Poppin,” on which he’s featured with Tory Lanez and Lil Wayne).

Drake also nabs his record-extending 10th Streaming Songs No. 1 with “What’s Next” — still double the next-closest artists; Cardi B, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift and Travis Scott each have four apiece.

The March 20 Streaming Songs chart marks the first time since the survey dated Oct. 19, 2019, that the top three is made up of debuts (Travis Scott’s “Highest in the Room,” Juice WRLD and YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s “Bandit” and Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber’s “10,000 Hours). It’s also the first time since the Oct. 13, 2018, list that the top four consists of debuts, following the aforementioned Lil Wayne week (and adding Lil Wayne’s “Uproar” at No. 4). On the latest tally, Drake’s songs are joined by Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open” at No. 4 (23.2 million streams).
