Drake's 'One Dance' No. 1 on Hot 100 for Eighth Week
With his latest frame atop both the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 charts, Drake ties a mark first set by Michael Jackson.
And, as the song's parent album, Views, crowns the Billboard 200 chart for a ninth total week (all earned consecutively), Drake has led the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 concurrently for the past seven weeks, tying Michael Jackson for the longest-ever simultaneous domination of the two rankings by a male artist.
Let's run down the top 10 of the airplay, sales and streaming-based Hot 100, with all charts to update tomorrow (July 6) on Billboard.com.
As "Dance," released on Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records, continues atop the Hot 100, it earns an 11th week atop the audio subscription services-based On-Demand Songs streaming chart with 19.1 million on-demand U.S. plays (down 3 percent) in the week ending June 30, according to Nielsen Music. The track ties for the second-longest command of On-Demand Songs since the chart launched in 2012: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop," featuring Wanz, leads with 13 weeks at No. 1 (2013), while Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk!," featuring Bruno Mars, also ruled for 11 weeks (2015).
"Dance" stays at No. 2 on the overall Streaming Songs chart, which it led for a week (May 21), with 21 million U.S. streams (down 4 percent). It slips to No. 2 on Radio Songs after two (nonconsecutive) weeks on top (157 in audience, down 4 percent), while on the Digital Songs sales chart, which it topped for two weeks, it holds at No. 4 (78,000 downloads sold, down 8 percent). Drake's first Hot 100 No. 1 as a lead artist rules Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for a ninth week and crowns the Songs of the Summer chart for a fifth week, following the list's annual relaunch four weeks ago.
Back to Drake's historic achievement: As "Dance" has led the Hot 100 the past seven weeks concurrently with Views topping the Billboard 200, Drake ties for the longest consecutive control of the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously among males: Michael Jackson also led both lists concurrently for seven straight weeks in 1983 with "Billie Jean" and Thriller, respectively. Among all artists, Drake links the longest consecutive coronations on the charts simultaneously since Whitney Houston led both lists for a record-tying 12 straight weeks in 1992-93 with "I Will Always Love You" and parent album The Bodyguard (with the soundtrack credited as a Houston album).
Here's a look at the acts to top the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 at the same time for the most consecutive weeks (dating to Aug. 17, 1963, when the Billboard 200 combined mono and stereo sales; the Hot 100 launched Aug. 4, 1958):

Calvin Harris' "This Is What You Came For," featuring Rihanna, holds at its No. 5 Hot 100 peak, highlighted by its No. 5 on rank on Radio Songs, where it's up by 9 percent to 100 million.
