Childish Gambino's "This Is America" May Stop Drake's 15-Week Streak at No. 1

Set to end the unprecedented run.

By //Music

With “This Is America” taking over the U.S. and the Internet, Childish Gambino‘s politically- and socially-charged single could dethrone Drake‘s spot at the top of the Billboard singles chart.

Before Donald Glover released the song with a Hiro Murai music video, the Canadian artist was comfortably enjoying a 15-week streak at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Nice For What.” But with current projections set to come into fruition, the “This Is America” rapper will most likely take over the seat at the top of the chart. According to Billboard, Childish Gambino’s latest track is on track to record 50 million streams and eight million radio plays this week.

Stay tuned to find out if Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” will take over the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
