Drake Misses Out On His Billboard Number One

Billboard won’t be blinging Drake’s hotline this week. Despite the release of the accompanying Hotline Bling video that’s already been meme-ified an infinite number of times, The Weeknd’s The Hills remains in the number one spot for a sixth consecutive week.

With Adele’s Hello set to break download records this week (it’s already broken the single-day Vevo streaming record), it seems Drizzy has missed his shot at being number one.

Despite being one of three artists who have over 100 Billboard Hot 100 charting songs, he has never had the top spot, a career goal he addressed in a heartfelt Instagram he posted a week ago.

Apple Music might be the one to blame for this misfortune. Drake exclusively released the video with Apple’s streaming service as part of his deal with the company. But Apple Music doesn’t report music video views to Nielsen Music, so the number of streams on the video (which is probably in the tens of millions) couldn’t be accounted for.

Sorry Drake. Maybe next time.
