Drake's Incredible 430-Week Run on the Billboard Hot 100 Is Over

If you're reading this it's too late.

All good things (must) come to an end and, for Drake, that means that for the first time since May 23, 2009—the week his debut single, "Best I Ever Had," charted for the first time—he has failed to chart at least one record on the Billboard Hot 100.

After 20 weeks on the chart, More Life single "Passionfruit" bowed out after dropping down to No. 81, and after only six weeks, "Signs," a non-album loosie that would have been a perfect fit on More Life, also made its exit after barely hanging on at No. 100.

Drake's departure from the Hot 100 ends an unprecedented 430-week streak of continuous charting, during which time he charted 45 times as a lead artist and 49 times as a featured artist.

Given that the Canadian hitmaker recently revealed that he's currently working on his next album in his hometown of Toronto, fans should expect Drake's return to the charts sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, though, it appears he's going to give the artists on his label a chance to nab a spot or two. What a guy.
