As "Dance," released on Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records, leads the Hot 100 for a seventh week (and sixth in a row), it earns a 10th week atop the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs streaming chart with 19.7 million on-demand U.S. plays (down 3 percent) in the week ending June 23, according to Nielsen Music. Only four hits previously topped On-Demand Songs for at least 10 weeks since the chart launched in March 2012: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop," featuring Wanz (13 weeks); Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk!," featuring Bruno Mars (11); Iggy Azalea's "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, and Katy Perry's "Dark Horse," featuring Juicy J (10 each). Drake surpasses his prior best run: Rihanna's "Work," on which he's featured, led On-Demand Songs for nine weeks earlier this year.

"Dance" rebounds 2-1 on Radio Songs for a second a week as the most heard song on U.S. radio, and marks a new best career audience week for Drake: 164 million in reach (up 3 percent). He previously drew 159 million on the Jan. 22, 2011, chart as featured on Rihanna's "What's My Name?"

"Dance" stays at No. 2 on the overall Streaming Songs chart, which it led for a week (May 21), with 21.8 million U.S. streams (down 3 percent). On the Digital Songs sales chart, which it topped for two weeks, it drops 2-4 (84,000 downloads sold, down 5 percent). Drake's first Hot 100 No. 1 as a lead artist rules Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for an eighth week and crowns the Songs of the Summer chart for a fourth week, following the list's annual relaunch three weeks ago.

"Dance" is from Drake's album Views, which, as previously reported, logs an eighth week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. With Drake having led both the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 for each of the past six weeks, he is the first artist to double up atop the rankings for six straight frames since Adele did so for six with "Hello" and parent album 25, respectively, in December-January. The last male to lead the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 concurrently for at least six straight weeks before Drake was 50 Cent, who earned the honor for six weeks in a row in 2005 with "Candy Shop" (featuring Olivia) and album The Massacre.

The last longer double domination? Whitney Houston led the Hot 100 and Billboard 200, respectively, for a record-tying 12 weeks in a row at the same time in 1992-93 with "I Will Always Love You" and its parent album, her soundtrack to The Bodyguard. Meanwhile, Drake is a week from tying the longest consecutive control of the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously among males: Michael Jackson led both lists concurrently for seven straight weeks in 1983 with "Billie Jean" and Thriller, respectively.

Desiigner's former two-week No. 1 "Panda" keeps at No. 3 on the Hot 100. Still, it tops Streaming Songs for a 10th total week, drawing 26.8 million domestic streams (down 9 percent). The rapper's breakthrough hit earns a 12th week at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Rap Songs chart.
