Drake Goes Platinum in a Week and Earns 1st Solo No. 1 with “One Dance”

And just like that, Drake brings Afrobeat to the mainstream

Drake is all the way up right now, he released his highly anticipated “Views” album a week ago. The album sold 630K copies within it’s first night of release and since then, it has obviously debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, moving 1.04 million units made up of 852,000 traditional sales.

Now that fans have had some time to sit with the record, they’ve already gravitated towards the songs they like, one in particular is “One Dance” which has become the Toront MC’s first number one single as a solo artist.

It replaces Desiigner’s Panda at the top, a spot he had just recently held alongside Rihanna for their collaboration Work.

As a lead artist, the highest Drake reached previously was number two with “Best I Ever Had” in 2009 from his So Far Gone mixtape and “Hotline Bling” last year.

A video for “One Dance” is currently being filmed.
