Drake’s ‘Toosie Slide’ Makes Historic No. 1 Debut On Billboard Hot 100

TSR Tunez: Drake makes hits, that’s not up for debate. So we all knew the Toosie Slide was gonna be a slap, but his dance-inducing slap just helped him make history.

“Toosie Slide” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, helping him become the first male artist and second musical act overall to have debuted three songs at number one!

The other artist is Mariah Carey, who before today, was the only artist to achieve such a feat between the years 1995 and 1997, according to Billboard.

‘Toosie Slide’ gives Drizzy his seventh total Hot 100 No. 1. The song replaced The Weeknd’s single “Blinding Lights,” which spent two weeks on top.

“Toosie Slide” follows “God’s Plan,” which opened atop the chart on Feb. 3, 2018, and the song that replaced it at No. 1, “Nice for What,” on April 21, 2018.

Among all artists, Drake now matches Mariah Carey, who first sent three songs onto the Hot 100 at No. 1 starting with “Fantasy” (Sept. 30, 1995); “One Sweet Day,” with Boyz II Men (Dec. 2, 1995); and “Honey” (Sept. 13, 1997).

Britney Spears, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande have each debuted two songs at No. 1 on the Hot 100.

I think we’re anxious to see if Drake will lap Mariah Carey with one more Hot 100 No. 1 debut but only time will tell.
