Go Drake! The Canadian rapper has tied with Michael Jackson “for the longest-ever simultaneous domination of the two rankings by a male artist” on Billboard.

The two rankings are the album sales – Views has been at the top of the Billboard 200 for 9 weeks consecutively and One Dance featuring our very own Wizkid and Kyla has been Number One on the Hot 100.

The album is also Drake’s most commercially successful till date.

      Exactly @keke driver

      They always miss that piece of info when bigging up Drake for One Dance. Especially since Wizkid/Kyla contributed to writing AND producing the song!

    Wizkid when are you going to give credit to Dj Maphorisa.Your supplier and producer of these killer beats.He said in an interview with Bonang that you have requested for two more beats.See even Beyonce loved his work.#Sowetobaby.She played it in the stadium at her formation tour.Chrisbrown wants a collabo with him a I just hope he was paid well for his input in this Song.

    you mean the song that whole of naija bragged about that Wiz kid was on yet i have listened to the song a hundred times and not hear wizkid at all (not even his autotune)

    stop feeling more valued only if you collab with some american or you get some american to sign you on their label (dbanj). Carve your own niche,, You do your own song here in naija, let him come to naija so it will be Wizkid ft Drake . AFter listening to the song before it was released your team should have said – he should take your name oout, cos you cannot hear you on it at all whatsoever. He has embarassed you to the highest order. 🙂

    Maybe i am deaf like everyone else 🙂

      Nne, I love wiz kid a lot, a bit uncouth and rude but I love him. I must confess I also haven’t heard him on the song but then, I’m not a musical genius so congrats to Wizkid, Kayla and Drake. All is well
