Drake grabbed the most Hot 100 entries of 2018, followed by Travis Scott, Lil Wayne
The “Blue Tint,” lyric, “top of the charts, back in they hearts” is certainly an apt description of Drake‘s performance on the charts last year. The viral success of “God’s Plan,” “Nice For What,” and “In My Feelings” led Drizzy to top Apple Music and Spotify‘s respective 2018 top album and artist statistics, an unsurprising finale to the year, given the omnipresent Scorpion singles’ collective 29 week residency on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. When it comes to the artist with the most Hot 100 entries of the year, Travis Scott and Lil Wayne follow Drake with 31 and 25 entries each, but fail to knock the 6 God’s crown. Drake touts the most Hot 100 entries of 2018, with a whopping 35.
Hip hop entities noticeably dominate Billboard’s list of the 12 musicians to receive the most entries of the year. Cardi B, XXXTentacion, Nicki Minaj, and Post Malone trail Drake, Travis, and Weezy, while Khalid remains the only artist outside of the rap genre to grace the list. While ranking among the highest grossing on Billboard’s list is no small feat, what Billboard’s Hot 100 count ultimately evidences is Drake’s unfaltering hold on the Hot 100 in one year’s time.
