Drake's unbroken eight-year streak on the US charts is over

Drake had at least one track on the Billboard Hot 100 for over eight years, but not anymore.

In case you didn't realise, Drake has had a song on the US charts every week for the last eight years, but that streak has come to an end this week.

Starting with Best I Ever Had placing at Number 92 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated May 23, 2009, the Canadian became the first ever artist to pass the eight year mark for consecutive week placings on the rundown earlier this year.

Drake's latest More Life 'playlist' project helped extend the popularity set by his many hit singles from his Views album, while his recent collaboration with DJ Khaled titled To The Max helped him stick around a little longer.

Drizzy's latest song Signs, released exclusively in partnership with Louis Vuitton's latest fashion collection placed at Number 100 on last week's standings, while More Life album track Passionfruit charted at Number 81. This week however, both have dropped out, ending Drake's historic run at an incredible 430 consecutive weeks.

While we're sure Drake is a little gutted to see his streak finally come to an end, at least he can be happy that he's broken records along the way during those eight years. Some 155 Hot 100 hits helped him achieve his chart longevity - that's more Hot 100 hits than any other artist ever.

Complex reports that of his 155 hits, 93 were his own tracks as a lead artist, while 22 of them were collaborations with Lil Wayne, who just so happens to have the second-most Hot 100 hits. 

While Drake has not had quite that many UK hits, he has enjoyed the second longest-reigning Number 1 single of all-time in One Dance, and he's scored 29 UK Top 40 hits. View Drake's full UK chart history here.
