Drake Makes Billboard Charts History By Notching 100 Hot 100 Singles

 

There is no doubt that Drake is the man right now in hip hop. Everything he touches seems to turn into gold.

This week, the Toronto rapper keeps his winning streak going by becoming only the fourth act in history to land triple digit singles on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

Drizzy joins Lil Wayne, Elvis Presley and the cast of Glee as the only artists to land at least 100 singles on the chart. He surged into the top four this week when eight songs from his collaborative mixtape with Future, What a Time To Be Alive, debuted on the list.

Check out the numbers via Billboard below.

207, Glee Cast
127, Lil Wayne

108, Elvis Presley (Notably, Presley’s career predated the Hot 100 by two years. He arrived with the first of his smashes, including “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Don’t Be Cruel” and “Hound Dog,” in 1956, two years before the Hot 100’s launch.)
