Drake has given more life to a record birthed when hits from his March 2017 release, ‘More Life,’ made him the most charted artist in the history of the Hot 100.
Edging out longtime mentor and labelmate Lil’ Wayne for the honor when all 22 songs from ‘Life’ landed on the chart simultaneously then, now Drizzy has added two new tunes – ‘Signs’ & Metro Boomin‘s ‘No Complaints’ – to this week’s refreshed Hot 100 and the stack of his own chart hits.
He’s extended the distance between himself and Wayne in history books.
‘[‘Signs’] enters the Hot 100 as the chart’s Hot Shot Debut (for the week’s top arrival) at No. 36…
With the bows, Drake extends his lead for the most Hot 100 appearances among soloists (including lead and featured billings), dating to the chart’s Aug. 4, 1958, inception. Here’s an updated count of the artists with the most Hot 100 entries:
207, Glee Cast
136, Lil Wayne
108, Elvis Presley (whose career predates the Hot 100’s origin)
91, James Brown’
The news is accompanied by reports Drake has also extended another achievement: the record for the longest consecutive run on the Hot 100. As we reported here, the last 8 years have not gone one week without printing his name in at least one position.
Thanks to ‘Signs’ and ‘Complaints,’ that trend continues as they help him notch his 426th weeks. Check below to see who joins him in the Hot 100 this week on TGJ’s latest ‘Chart Check’:
