The journey of rap has seen its share of challenges and victories.
Travis Scott emerged triumphant by ending the genre’s spell without a chart-topping album, with his release “Utopia” seizing the top spot on the charts a mere three weeks ago. Remarkably, it continues to maintain its dominant position.
Yet, an even lengthier streak remains unbroken.
A complete year has elapsed since a rap track secured the coveted number-one position on the prestigious Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Breaking this streak is Oliver Anthony’s melodious creation, “Rich Men North of Richmond,” a departure from the rap genre.
This week, the talented country singer clinches the top rank, etching his name in history as the first-ever artist to seize the coveted number-one spot without any prior chart presence.
