The Weeknd continues to set new records for himself on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, as “The Hills” remains at No. 1 for a fourth week.

According to Billboard, that’s the Weeknd’s longest run at #1 so far — he’d previously led for three weeks with his first charttopper, “Can’t Feel My Face.”   The Canadian singer performed “The Hills” this past weekend on Saturday Night Live with Nicki Minaj.

Elsewhere, Drake‘s “Hotline Bling” climbs from #3 to #2 on the Hot 100, which matches his highest rank as a lead artist. His 2009 smash, “Best I Ever Had,” peaked at No. 2 for four weeks.

“Bling” also marks Drake’s first #1 as a lead on the Digital Songs chart.  He was simply a featured guest on his two previous #1 hits: Lil Wayne‘s 2011 single “She Will” and Rihanna‘s 2010 smash, “What’s My Name?”

The publication notes that Drake’s “Bling” has become the best-selling song in the U.S., which means it could become his first No. 1 as a solo artist on the Hot 100 next week.
