Drake Ties Diddy with 10th No. 1 Rap Single ‘Headlines’
It looks like Drake is on the road to greatness with his upcoming LP 'Take Care.' The set's kick-off single 'Headlines' reached the top spot of the latest Billboard Rap Songs chart. This marks Drizzy's 10th No. 1 single since 'Best I Ever Had' spent 15 weeks at the top in 2009.
With this chart feat, Drake ties with Diddy as having the most No. 1 rap songs, so far. The Diddster has been collecting No. 1 hits since 1996 beginning with the Lil' Kim-duet 'No Time.' His last chart-topper was the 2003 party anthem 'Shake Ya Tailfeather' with Nelly and Murphy Lee. In addition, Drake’s two guest-featured songs, DJ Khaled’s 'I’m On One' and Lil Wayne's 'She Will,' finished at No. 2 and 3, respectively, on the Rap Songs chart.
Meanwhile, Drake is currently mastering 'Take Care' in New York. The Drake Fan website All Things Fresh posted several photos from a recent studio session. The pics show Drizzy and his crew wrapped in concentration as they are in the final stages of delivering the product to the record label. Drake even had time to check out his blog and read some comments.
'Take Care' is set to arrive in stores on Oct. 24. You can pre-order the album at Amazon.com.
