Drake's "God's Plan" continues historic Billboard run
“Might go down as G.O.D.”
Other than being America’s favorite song of the year (so far), Drake’s “God Plan” has been making history for just about every week since its mid-January debut. Last week, as it tallied its ninth week atop the Hot 100 chart, Billboard reported the song collected nine of the top 14 streaming weeks of all-time. Now, it spends its tenth week at No. 1.
“God’s Plan” is Drizzy’s biggest single to date, as it lands as the fifth song in the Hot 100 chart’s 59-year history to spend its first ten weeks at No. 1. His last chart-topper, “One Dance,” also accomplished the 10-week week reign back in 2016. However, unlike “Plan,” its run was non-consecutive. As of now, the song is just six weeks away from surpassing the all-time record of 16 weeks at No. 1, which was set by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s eye-watering ballad “One Sweet Day” in in 1995-96.
Drake’s “God’s Plan” originally arrived back in January as a cut featured on his surprise two-song EP, Scary Hours.
While the record continues to snowball, Drizzy’s hit factory is prepping new chunes for everyone’s head-top. A few weeks ago, the rapper teased music with rap’s go-to producer Murda Beatz. During a live story by the hitmaker, he declared, in a comment, “New single dropping soon produced by Chef Murda.” No date or title has been announced.
