Drake Isn't Officially Credited on Travis Scott's "SICKO MODE," Misses out on Seventh No. 1 Single

Congratulations—or, our condolences—to Drake, who most likely is doing fine either way.

It's a sad day in the world of Drizzy Drake, or, as sad as it can get. 

On Monday, Billboard announced that Travis Scott's "SICKO MODE," which features a guest appearance from Drake, had reached No. 1 on the Hot 100. In dethroning the previous chart-topper, Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next," Scott scored his first No. 1 single.

Unfortunately for Drake, the success of “SICKO MODE” won't be reflected in his all-time Billboard chart history, which includes 191 all-time charting credits and six No. 1 records.

Best of the Week highlights the latest and greatest on Audiomack across genres and the globe.

Why? Simple: because he was not officially featured on the song.

Speaking with a source from Billboard, we were told: “We couldn’t pinpoint a song that Drake wasn’t credited on that hit the top 10, or even No. 1. From what we can see, he’s always had the ‘feat. Drake’ credit save for 'SICKO MODE.'”

Certainly, the accolade would have been nice—anything to increase his No. 1 hits lead over JAY-Z (4) and Kanye (4)—but as one of the biggest artists on the planet, another No. 1 single just begins to pale in comparison to the numerous other achievements Drizzy stumbles into on a seemingly monthly basis.

Though he missed out on a credit from “SICKO MODE,” Drake’s double album Scorpion was named one of the top 10 Billboard albums this year in music, securing a No. 2 spot. Not a No. 1, but a massive victory all the same. Congratulations—or, our condolences—to Drake, who most likely is doing fine either way.
