Drake goes 2-1 on the Rhythmic Songs airplay chart with “Fake Love,” scoring his 18th No. 1 on the list, extending his record for most chart-toppers in the 24-year history of the chart. Rihanna follows with 14. The track, from his forthcoming More Life project, rises 6 percent in plays at the format during the tracking week ending Jan. 15, according to Nielsen Music.
