2 Chainz + Drake Make History on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart
The rap duo have made history on the tally off their ubiquitous hit ‘No Lie.’ For 2 Chainz, he nabbed his second chart-topper with the single as it jumped from No. 2 to No. 1 this week. In doing so, the Atlanta rapper actually replaced himself from the top as ‘Mercy,’ his joint with G.O.O.D. Music, drops to the second slot. We don’t think Kanye West will have a hissy-fit over it, after all, 2 Chainz is family.
This is the second time this year that an artist knocked themselves off the perch with one of their own tracks. The last person to do it was, ironically, 2 Chainz’s ‘No Lie’ partner Drake back in February. His anthem ‘The Motto’ (Featuring Lil Wayne) bumped his own song ‘Make Me Proud’ (featuring Nicki Minaj) from the top spot. YOLO!
Speaking of dethroning, the Young Money superstar has overthrown the hip-hop king when it comes to hit songs. Drake has smashed Jay-Z‘s record for having the most No. 1 singles in the history of the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart.
Drizzy officially has notched his tenth No. 1 single on the tally with ‘No Lie,’ beating out Hova who has nine hits under his belt so far. This is an impressive achievement considering that Drake has only been in the rap game for three years and already he’s making history. Jay-Z better watch the throne, Drake is about to rule the rap game. No lie!
Here’s the list of the rappers with the most No. 1s in the history of Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart:
Drake – 10
Jay-Z – 9
Lil Wayne – 8
Kanye West – 6
50 Cent – 4
Ludacris – 4
Nelly – 4
