Drake Ties Madonna’s Hot 100 Record After EVERY Song From ‘Dark Lane’ Mixtape Charted

Published: Wednesday 13th May 2020 by Rashad

Drake‘s record-breaking relationship with the Hot 100 is absolutely unprecedented.

Beyond having more entries on the tally than any other artist in history (over 200), he’s also the first male act to have seen three of his singles debut at #1 on the chart over the course of his career (as we reported here), only artist to concurrently place 7 songs in the top 10 (as we reported here), most top 10 debuts (23), and only artist to have 27 simultaneous entries.

Now, after breaking King of Pop Michael Jackson‘s Hot 100 record for ‘most weeks at #1 among males’ and ‘most top 10 hits among males,’ Drizzy is poised to dethrone Queen of Pop Madonna from her longstanding record.

Details inside:

As we reported here, Drake (born Aubrey Graham) may have missed the top spot on the Billboard 200 for the first time in over a decade, but his dominance of the Hot 100 stands strong.


“Drake ties the record for the most top 10 hits in the Billboard Hot 100’s 61-year history, as he tallies his 38th top 10 on the latest chart…

Drake’s “Pain 1993,” featuring Playboi Carti (who earns his first Hot 100 top 10), debuts at No. 7…

Now with 38 total top 10s on the Hot 100, Drake ties Madonna, who had held the record by herself since November 2002…

Notably, all 38 of Madonna’s Hot 100 top 10s have been in lead roles; due partly to the collaborative nature of hip-hop, Drake has posted 25 top 10s as a lead and 13 as a featured artist.”

It’s also worth nothing that among their 38 Hot 100 top 10s apiece, Drake has nabbed seven No. 1s while Madonna has logged 12.  The win comes just as reports surface every song from ‘Dark Lane’s tracklist impacted the Hot 100 this week.  As a result, he extends his record number of career entries to 222.

    SO…………….and we are why? She’s turned from a Fashion/Legendary Icon into an Asian old Lady. And Drake is….a lady.

    Madonna songs are remember and still played regularly after so many years

    But who is playing God’s plan or nice for what?
    These are songs that we released just 3 years ago. Smh

    This is such a joke. Streaming accounts for too much along with the fact that non singles can now officially chart. Drake is nowhere near legendary like Queen Madge who did it on pure sales and radio

    Drake’s are not singles just songs. They mustnt be count

    That’s cheating!!

    Streams & pure singles sales should NOT be in the same sentence.

    Or counted as equivalents!
