Drake cements his record as the Canadian artist with most #1s on the Billboard Hot 100.

 

Drake is also the 8th artist not from the United States to reach 7 #1s on the Billboard Hot 100. He and Phil Collins each have 7 #1s, and the artists not from the United States with 8 or more #1s are The Beatles (20), Rihanna (14), The Bee Gees (9), Elton John (9), The Rolling Stones (8), and George Michael (8).

With "Say So" going to number 1, it's the first time Dr. Luke went to #1 since 2014.  I had no idea that Dr. Luke was back until today , and he's been back for over a year now.  He used to be one of my favourite writer-producer of pop music before the whole Kesha thing blew up.   He also co-wrote/co-produced all the songs off Kim Petras' "Clarity" album, which I absolutely loved.   He's been using "Tyson Trax" and "Made In China" as pseudonyms. 

 

Hiding in Plain Sight: Dr. Luke Is Back With Doja Cat’s Smash ‘Say So,’ But Did He Ever Really Go Away?

 

Dr. Luke earns first No. 1 hit since Kesha allegations with Doja Cat’s ‘Say So’

 

 

Surprised that one of Nicki's smash pop songs didn't go #1.  It's a bit sad that she had to be a featured performer to get her first #1, and it wasn't even an original feature (that's on an album).  Instead it was an added feature, a ploy to get "Say So" to chart higher.   I wonder if it was Dr. Luke's idea to add Nicki since they worked together before.

Another TikTok-afied song goes to #1!  I'll be happy when the TikTok trend dies down but I don't think it will happen for at least another 1-2 years.   And it's another song that need a remix boost to get the #1 - not a fan of this strategy either. 

 

Also not a fan of the 2-1 deals.  If I have this correct, and please correct me I'm wrong, if you purchase a CD or vinyl that comes with a digital download, that can count as 2 sales (if the person uses the digital download code)?
