Bringing a record-setting, eight-year streak to a close, Drake is absent from the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the first time since 2009, Billboard reports.
The Toronto rapper first appeared on the chart with his debut single, “Best I Ever Had,” in May 2009.
He then spent a record 431 straight weeks with one or more songs on the singles chart, before his most recent entries, “Passionfruit” and “Signs,” both dropped from the list this week.
In May, as Billboard notes, Drake became the first artist to stay on the chart for eight straight years.
His highest peaking single, “One Dance,” is also his only song to reach No. 1 on the chart.
The current standing for artists with the most consecutive weeks on the chart is as follows, via Billboard:
326, Lil Wayne
207, Nicki Minaj
161, Chris Brown
141, Kenny Chesney
139, Destiny’s Child
139, Katy Perry
139, Taylor Swift
