"What does it take to be number one?"
There once was a moment when Drake starred in a leading role on a beloved Canadian series, his dreams of rap game dominance far from manifestation. Yet somehow, the rapper found himself rising at an exponential rate; fast forward to 2018, where it's safe to call Drizzy one of the biggest artists in the world.
Even those fatigued of his presence are hard pressed to deny his ubiquity; its entirely possible that somewhere out there, Pusha T is muttering "yes, but I have the album of the year." Still, despite having his hidden child revealed to the world, and being served a harsh reality check on the rules (or lackthereof) of rap beef, Drake has emerged from one of his biggest years to date unscathed - with receipts, no less.
In light of "Sicko Mode" securing the number one spot, Drake took to Instagram to indulge in a bit of self-congratulation. Sharing a message from his manager Future The Prince, Drake reveals how powerful his run truly was. Citing Billboard alone, Drake's list of accomplishment reads longer than a reply from a scorned lover. Twenty-seven number one spots, including Top Overall Artist, #1 Hot 100 Artist, #1 Streaming Songs Artist, #1 Hot 100 Male, and much more. Check out the full list below.
