If you thought 2016 was a good year for Drake, your jaw will drop when you see how great his 2017 is going (post-Grammy snubs).
The rapper unleashed his latest project, ‘More Life,’ last week and has been steamrolling the competition since. In addition to nabbing the year’s best first week sales with the “playlist album,” snatching the honor from Ed Sheeran‘s blockbuster album, ‘Divide,’ Drizzy dethroned himself by topping ‘Views’ for “best 24 hour and 1 week streaming…ever.”
Now, after all of that, he’s left his Young Money mentor, Lil Wayne, in the rearview with a jaw-dropping record. Find out what inside:
…with all 22 tracks from the set, as well as two others, on the Hot 100 at once, Drake passes Lil Wayne for the most charted titles among soloists (154) in the Hot 100’s 58-year history, while breaking his own mark for the most simultaneously charted Hot 100 titles in a week (24).
Drake also rewrites his own record for the most Hot 100 debuts in a week, sending 21 songs, all from More Life, onto the list for the first time.
Here is an updated count of the acts with the most Hot 100 entries all-time:
207, Glee Cast
135, Lil Wayne
108, Elvis Presley
91, James Brown
87, Jay Z
82, Chris Brown
81, Kanye West
77, Nicki Minaj
75, Ray Charles
Note: Of his 154 appearances on the chart, 103 of them were as the lead artist.
The announcement comes just a week after news surfaced his Young Money sister, Nicki Minaj, had more Hot 100 entries than any other female in history (a reign she extended this week with the entry of Jason Derulo‘s ‘Swalla’).
With Lil Wayne now having the second-most Hot 100 entries of any solo artist in history, it’s safe to say that Young Money reign just won’t let up!
