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

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

Bringing a record-setting, eight-year streak to a close, Drake is absent from the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the first time since 2009, Billboard reports. That was the year his debut track, "Best I Ever Had", appeared on the Hot 100.

However, the streak snapped this week when his latest singles, "Signs" and "Passionfruit", dropped completely off the chart from numbers 100 and 81, respectively.

Drake's record-breaking reign on the Billboard charts is over. All 22 songs from the project made the Hot 100 simultaneously in its debut week this March, helping Drake set a new high mark for most debuts there in one week, and the most simultaneously charted Hot 100 titles in a week (24 with the addition of two other singles).

While some fans and supporters might be surprised to see Drizzy leave the chart soon after releasing his successful More Life playlist album in the same year, he is now considered the longest uninterrupted run on the Billboard Hot 100 for his 430 week streak.
