Drake slid right into the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Toosie Slide,” which became the 36th song in the chart’s history to come out on top in its first week.

The Canadian rapper has done this before, with his one-two punch of “God’s Plan” and then “Nice for What” in February and April 2018, a tactic Ariana Grande adopted later in November 2018 and February 2019 for her career-first and -second No. 1 hits “Thank U, Next” and “7 Rings,” respectively.

Coincidentally, “Toosie Slide” isn’t the only song based on a dance move to jump straight to the top: Baauer‘s smash hit “Harlem Shake” did it back in 2013. And another mover and shaker, Taylor Swift‘s “Shake It Off,” kept the momentum going in 2014. But when it comes to which king or queen rules the Hot 100 throne with the most No. 1 debuts, Drake and Mariah Carey are duking it out with three singles each.
