Drake's eight-year streak on U.S. pop charts ends

Drake's record-setting run on the U.S. singles chart has come to an end after eight years.

For the first time since the hip-hop hitmaker's 2009 debut single, Best I Ever Had, not one of his songs features in the Billboard Hot 100, bringing his uninterrupted 430-week stint to a halt after Passionfruit and Signs both slipped out of the countdown this week (begs14Aug17).

He is the only artist to lay claim to such a reign, with 157 of his tunes charting during that period.

His Young Money Entertainment label boss Lil Wayne is a distant second, with 326 weeks, on the list of musicians with the most consecutive weeks on the Hot 100.

Drake's frequent collaborators Rihanna (216) and Nicki Minaj take third and fourth place, respectively, with Chris Brown (161) rounding out the top five.
