However, Drake has finally got the number one spot with his smash hit One Dance which features Wizkid. On Monday, May 9, Billboard reported this saying: “Dance, released on Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records, becomes Drake’s first Hot 100 No. 1 in a lead role, following two toppers as a featured artist, both on tracks with Rihanna as the lead: What’s My Name? (one week, 2010) and Work, which spent its last of nine weeks at No. 1 three weeks ago (on the April 30-dated chart). As a lead, Drake had previously peaked as high as No. 2 twice: with his debut hit Best I Ever Had in 2009 and Hotline Bling last year. “Dance dethrones Desiigner’s Panda (1-2) on the Hot 100 after two weeks at No. 1.” This is impressive. With One Dance, Wizkid is pretty much achieving his greatest feat yet in music as far as international recognition and music chart history is concerned.
