Drake’s feelings seem to be getting him paid. Staying at the top of the charts for a second week according to billboards hot 100. Of course it wasn’t all of Drake’s feelings that is keeping him at the top. The record breaking song was challenged by many socialites, causing a phenomenal replay of the hit, while twerking and jumping out of cars, and wondering who the hell is KeKe.
Billboards posted that the song logged 116.2 million U.S. streams in the week ending July 19, according to Nielsen Music, breaking the weekly record held by Baauer’s fellow viral hit “Harlem Shake” since 2013.

The viral challenge-assisted smash breaks the record held by Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” since 2013. Plus, Drake ties Rihanna for the most weeks spent at No. 1 in the 2010s.
