Chart Check [Hot 100]: Post Malone Breaks Billboard’s Record for “Most Simultaneous Top 20 Hits”

Published: Wednesday 9th May 2018 by Rashad

Post Malone is the man to beat these days as evidenced by this week’s Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard 200 charts respectively.

As we reported here, the ‘Congratulations’ star was deserving of just that after his sophomore album, ‘beerbongs and Bentleys,’ steamrolled over global one-day Spotify records (set just the week prior by J. Cole).  Going on to break global first week Spotify records and earn the record for “most first week streams in history,” those massive streaming figures, alongside some handsome digital downloads, helped the project to the year’s best first week sales (to date) at 461,000 units shifted.  His dominance didn’t stop there, however.

On the Hot 100 side of the pond, Post posted a whopping 9 songs to the top 20 – more than any other artist in history (a record also previously held by Cole).  Look inside for more:


As Post Malone celebrates his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated May 12) as well as the biggest streaming week ever for an album, the rapper/singer concurrently breaks the record for the most simultaneous top 20 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.

Post Malone — whose sophomore effort beerbongs & bentleys opened with 461,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music — lands nine songs in the top 20 of the Hot 100, shattering the previous record of six, which was shared by The Beatles and J. Cole

    Billboard has made it too easy for songs to get on the hot 100 these days tbh. There were so many big hit songs in 1998 that couldn’t even be on the hot 100 because of chart rules back then and nowadays every song from an album release makes it on the chart. No wonder all these modern-day artists are “breaking records.”

      I agree.

      Streaming is ruining the fun of Chart watching the hot 100.

      I don’t get how these so called achievements are compared to none streaming days where acts actually had to break a sweat to get sales
