Los Angeles: Rapper Drake has set a new record for the most No 1 singles on Billboard`s R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart, pipping hip-hop mogul Jay-Z.
The 25-year-old Canadian posts his tenth chart-topping track as rapper 2 Chainz`s ‘No Lie’, in which he provides an assist, reported Aceshowbiz.
With this feat, Drake surpasses the record previously held by his senior Jay-Z. The Roc Nation founder has posted nine No 1 singles on the chart, the latest of which was his collaboration with Kanye West, ‘Niggas in Paris’.
The 25-year-old rapper scored his first No 1 R&B/hip-hop song with 2009`s `Best I Ever Had`. His other chart-toppers include `Forever`, `Over`, `Fancy`, `Headlines` and `The Motto`.
Drake is predicted to make more achievements when the 29th annual MTV Video Music Awards is held on September 6.
