Drake Passes Jay-Z's Record of R&B and Hip Hop No. 1s

People can keep on talking about Drake executive producing Aaliyah‘s posthumous album while he breaks records. It’s official. Drake has the most No. 1 singles on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop charts with 10 hits including the recent collaboration with 2 Chainz for “No Lies.” He can thank 2 Chainz later. Unexpectedly the YMCMB rapper passed Jay-Z who previously held the title with nine No. 1s on the same charts. The total number includes both individual songs and collaborations. Who would have thought the guy with some of the most regrettable go-to looks would break a veterans record so early in his career? His boss Lil Wayne is third on the list with eight No. 1s  and Kanye West‘s not far behind with six. Weezy really did cultivate the Toronto rapper so he could take over the rap game one R&B/Hip Hop hit at a time.
