Last year, U.S. rapper Drake posted on Instagram that getting the number 1 spot as a lead artiste on the Billboard 100 would be the biggest moment of his career.
I spend my life trying to make waves for the city I am from. No accolades really matter to me other than the fact that I have never had a billboard number one. If I get my first number one during the month of October it will be the biggest moment of my career to date (in my mind) and if you are looking for me on that particular evening I will be passed out in the water slide that connects to our pool. I love you and thank you for these memories. I always love the moment right before it happens more than when it actually happens. So thank you…even if it doesn't.
Well it seems Wizkid alongside Britain’s Kyla have helped the Canadian rap star achieve this feat after Billboard announced on Monday night that he had now gotten his number one spot on the highly-prestigious chart.
One Dance featuring the Starboy and Kyla is now Drake’s first no.1 as a lead artiste.
Prior to this, Drake’s highest position on the chart had been No. 2 twice – “Best I Ever Had” in 2009 and “Hotline Bling” in 2015.
