Drake is king of the charts - again

Drake has spent the most weeks at number one since 2010 than any other male artist in America.


Drake continues to dominate music charts around the world.

The Canadian rapper's latest hit, 'Nice for What', spent its second week at number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

The song's success means the Grammy Award-winner is now the only male artist to spend 33 weeks on top of the chart since 2010.

Bruno Mars previously held the title, with his songs spending 32 weeks at number one. 

'Nice For What' has been described as a women's empowerment anthem.

A-list stars such as Tracee Ellis Ross, Zoe Saldana, Olivia Wilde, and 'Black Panther' star Letitia Wright feature in the track's video.

The hit is Drake's fifth number one single in America. The song is the lead single for the rapper's fifth studio album, 'Scorpion', which drops in June.

'Nice for What' follows in the footsteps of another Drake hit, 'God's Plan'. The single spent 11 weeks at number one before it was dethroned by Drake's latest smash hit. 

'God's Plan' is also a chart-topping success in South Africa. It's currently at number 20 on the Coca-Cola Top 40.
