He scored his 21st No. 1 hit on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart.

Earning his 21st No. 1 hit on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart, Drake has bested a record previously held by icons Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder.

Drake's Laugh Now Cry Later featuring rapper Lil Durk, reached the No. 1 spot on the chart this week. Wonder and Franklin, who died in 2018, each have had 20 songs top the chart.

Of Drake’s 21 No. 1 hits on the R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart, 12 include him in the leading role, including God’s Plan, In My Feelings, Hotline Bling, Hold On, We’re Going Home, and Best I Ever Had, his first major hit released in 2009. Nine of his No. 1 successes are songs he co-starred on, including Work with Rihanna, Moment 4 Life with Nicki Minaj, Fall For Your Type with Jamie Foxx.

Earlier this year, 34-year-old Drake made Billboard chart history when he set a new record for most songs on the Hot 100 chart — Billboard's main songs chart that includes all music genres.
