According to Billboard:
The song’s [Hold On, We’re Going Home] 3-1 rise ends Robin Thicke’s reign with “Blurred Lines” at 16 weeks and marks Drake’s 11th leader on the list. Since Nielsen data began powering the chart in Dec. 1992, only Usher has taken more titles to the summit, with 12.
With airplay and streaming gainer awards, “Hold On” owes its ascent primarily to its 13% rise to 12 million listener impressions and its 86% lift to 5.7 million U.S. streams, according to Nielsen BDS. The impressive increase in streams is due to the song’s video being released on Sept. 25.
