Drake’s Got A New Mixtape Coming And ‘One Dance’ Is Set To Lose Its Top Spot On Singles Chart
Good news and bad news for Drizzy...
Life’s been pretty good for Drake in 2016, hasn’t it? He released his massive new album Views, ‘One Dance’ became the longest-running UK no.1 single in the digital age and Mark Wahlberg wore one of his hats.
Come to think of it, Drake might be literally the only person alive who’s had an enjoyable 2016. But, unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. So while Drake has said that he’s got a new mixtape coming, ‘One Dance’ is set to finally lose its top spot on the singles chart.
Let’s talk about that mixtape first. Views has been an enormous success for Drake on both sides of the Atlantic, so it makes sense for him to not want to stop anytime soon.
As reported by Vibe, during his Summer Sixteen tour stop in Kansas City, Drizzy paused his set to speak to the crowd and let everyone know a new mixtape is on the way: “I want you to protect yourselves and each other,” Drake said. “When I go and work on this new mixtape and come back to Kansas City and I drop that s–t, I wanna see everybody in this motherf—-r boy!”
As we write this, there aren’t any more details than that. As soon as they hit, we’ll let you know, so stay tuned to MTV.
As for the bad news, it looks like Drake is going to finally be usurped on the Official Singles Charts. After spending a monster, record-breaking 15 weeks in the top spot with ‘One Dance’, it’s taken three acts to muscle him out from the top spot: Major Lazer, Justin Bieber and MØ with their new single ‘Cold Water’, which takes an early lead on the chart following its release last Friday.
Drake’s fall could mean he misses out on matching record for the most consecutive weeks at Number 1, held by Bryan Adams’ '(Everything I Do) I Do It For You', which logged 16 weeks at the top in 1991.
