Drake has been Named Shazam's Most Searched-for Artist of all Time

Drake has just been named Shazam's most searched artist of all time, adding to the many accomplishments and awards he's already received throughout his illustrious career.

According to Complex, the music identifying service is celebrating its 20th anniversary, and to mark the occasion, they've been sharing some fun stats from the past, such as the most Shazamed songs by genre, the first-ever Shazamed song, and many others.

In terms of his most recent honor, Drizzy has topped the platform's all-time searches list with a whopping 350 million Shazams (songs he's written or been featured on). The father of one's most popular track is 2016's "One Dance," which features Kyla Reid and Wizkid and has been searched over 17 million times since its release.

The announcement comes shortly after the 35-year-old celebrated his most recent release, DJ Khaled's "Staying Alive," which also features Lil Baby and became his 30th song to reach the Billboard Hot 100's top five.

Drake officially "got more slaps than The Beatles" when he broke their 55-year-old record, though he kept it lighthearted when celebrating, writing, "Just another celebration" on a photo of an empty plate with a shrug emoji.

Following another successful collaboration between Champagne Papi and Khaled, the DJ has all but confirmed that we'll be hearing more "vocals with an s" from the Canadian on his God Did album, which drops this Friday - read more about that here, and check back later for more hip-hop news updates.
