There is no stopping of Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake.

The 29-year-old Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and actor has been hogging the top positions on local and international music charts ever since he made his breakthrough on the music scene in 2009.

He recently broke Adele’s U.K. Official Charts streaming record with the single One Dance.

The single features vocals from Nigerian artist Wizkid and British vocalist Kyla.

Drake’s One Dance scored 7.86 million streams in its third week on the charts, breaking the previous single-week streaming record of 7.32 million streams held by Adele’s “Hello.”

The Afrobeat-inspired single is also the first with Drake as a lead artist to top the Official Charts.
