Drake's Big Career Moment Hasn't Happened Yet

Drizzy wants the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

Published October 15, 2015

Drake’s career accomplishments are hard to top.

This year, Drizzy has put out two No.1  albums (If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, What a Time to Be Alive) and his latest single, “Hotline Bling,” is getting all kind of remixes — even one from Erykah Badu.

What else can you strive for when you’re arguably at the top? Well, the No. 1 record in the country.

Currently, Drake’s “Hotline Bling” is at No. 2 behind The Weeknd’s “The Hills,” which has spent 17 weeks on the charts. According to Drake, he hasn't had a No. 1 record on the Billboard charts, which is pretty surprising considering all the catchy tunes he's made.


Says Drake: “I spend my life trying to make waves for the city I am from. No accolades really matter to me other than the fact that I have never had a Billboard number one. If I get my first number one during the month of October it will be the biggest moment of my career to date (in my mind) and if you are looking for me on that particular evening I will be passed out in the water slide that connects to our pool. I love you and thank you for these memories. I always love the moment right before it happens more than when it actually happens. So thank you...even if it doesn't.”

Pray that the 6 God gets his wish.
